Welcome to This Hot Mess! Let me introduce myself…my name is Kim to be honest, I’m just an girl trying to get through life, which I’ve found can be a bit of a hot mess. It feels like just when things seem to be coming together, life will throw you a curve ball and shake it all up again. But if I’m going to be real, like ‘real real’, it’s not just life! I find that I am a bloody hot mess, myself! And if you’ve stumbled on this page I’m hoping you are too.
So what is a human version of a hot mess? Well, just to name a few classic characteristics, we are slightly unorganised (ok, very, when unassisted), we are often late, we may suffer with anxiety or struggle with our mental health, and can be quite forgetful. We are doing our best, but often feel like this adulting this is getting the best of us, and sometimes we feel like we are discounted from achieving our dreams because of our hot mess tendencies. On the flip side, we have huge hearts and an even larger love for life, so we want to live our best life possible!
For me to live my best life, I’ve found it really matters that I keep my mind sharp and my heart soft; This means I consume content books, doco’s, news, blogs and podcasts at an alarming rate because I know that its through learning how to do life better that I can end up actually improving my quality of life. But it seemed silly to keep all this information to myself… I wanted to share it with girls like me who will also find it helpful, because surely I can’t be the only one who feels like she is killin’ it one moment and struggling to find her keys which are actually in her hand the next, haha!
Now please know, this page is definitely not here because I have all my ducks in a row and am sharing ‘my’ wisdom. It’s here to create a place that hopefully just feels like one constant coffee date between you and a girlfriend where she grabs your hand and says “hey babe, me too, check this book out, this is really helping me right now,” or “oh, you didn’t have time to read the paper this week? No probs, this is a quick update on what’s gone down”. Or tbh, just a place to share tips and thoughts that are helping me become the best version of myself (hello ways to keep me tidy and be kind!) .
So, if you’re like me, a bit of a hot mess trying to get through life whilst keeping your mind sharp and your heart soft, welcome to the Hot Mess Club! I’m so glad you’re here 🙂
All my love,
