About Me

Jane004-192x300My name is Jane, and The Hesitant Housewife is an honest account of my journey from dysfunction to domestic goddess… Or at least becoming a wife, mother and woman I can be proud of. (Not necessarily in that order!)
I have lead many lives, and stumbled down many paths, sometimes I have crashed and burned, other times I have chucked a u-turn, and sped off in the opposite direction.
It has taken me a long time to reach the point I’m at now, married to my soul mate, with a beautiful daughter. I have made many mistakes, and a whole lot of bad choices. I still struggle with depression, grapple with demons from my past, and struggle to be the kind of person I want to be.
Late in 2012 my daughter was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and as a family we have begun a new journey of learning and understanding.
I write from the heart and I write with emotion. I’m not someone who plans what I write, I feel it, I write it, I post it. I have too much self doubt to re read things over and over, I know I would self edit all of ‘me’ out of my writing if I did that.  So everything you read, is raw and honest, and ‘Me’.
I know that I am not alone in this journey, that so many other people are muddling through life, through relationships, through motherhood. Battling with mental illness, self esteem, miscarriage.
