Who is Matilda?

It’s not as easy to write about oneself as one would imagine. What is pertinent and what is irrelevant? I’ll start with the straightforward information.

I am almost fifty years old, have been married for 24 years and have three children. I studied communications, but never had a permanent job. When I was pregnant with our first child, our daughter, my husband and I decided that I would be a stay-at-home mom. At that time this was exactly what I wanted, to be a mom. For the next twenty years that was my life. I homeschooled all my children and everything was planned around school and making sure that we socialised enough. Lots of play dates. This is also how Belinda and I met.

Now for the deeper stuff. At almost fifty I am rediscovering parts of myself, I am discovering new things about me and I am the author of my life. I have always been an idealist and I always wanted a happy ending. What a cruel surprise life was, but through clinging tenaciously to denial it took me decades to come to terms with life. I started looking for truth in everything. I am still looking for truth, but I have realised that the truth is not out there. Truth is very subjective and I had to find my truth and my authentic self. I am still searching, going deeper and standing in the power of my authentic self. And what a ride it is turning out to be.

Thanks for visiting our blog and taking the time to read the words from our hearts.
