I’m Danni, founder of The Daily Authentic. I’m a mother, wife, employee, business owner and all-around generally very busy girl.
Firstly, let me just get this out of the way… I’m a sweary mum.
My 12yr old may tell me off and my own Mama hates it, but the truth is, it’s just me. Never is a sentence so well rammed home than with a well placed F Bomb. It’s also been known to increase your pain threshold and I have 2 daughters, so I deal with a LOT of pain. Daily.
There isn’t really any way I can offer advice or tell you one thing or another without telling you about my life first. I need you to know that I’m only saying the things or offering the advice that I do because I myself have lived it. Been there, dealt with that shit.
I’m the youngest of 7 kids. With a difference of 19 yrs between me and the eldest, I hope you can appreciate the extent of the time warp that is my life. I’ve been a SAHM, a Part-Time working mum and a Full-Time working mum, the differences between which are as astoundingly different as they are similar.
I love great books, sarcasm, and clever humour and I absolutely do not think farts are funny. I am a party girl from way back who loves wine, cake and shoes and I spend far too much time talking to myself.
Society places so much pressure on women to be perfect. I know, because I always wanted to be Wonder Woman too. These days though, I don’t even try.
The total and honest truth is that 99.9% of people, of mums, of women, all deal with the same shit, every day and there isn’t really any way to sugar coat it. Sometimes you just need to say “ fuck this shit” and move on.
The one thing you CAN do is to make sure you are the best person you can be, every. single. day.
Please know that you are not in this alone. People may pretend their lives are perfect but I can absolutely guarantee you they are not. We all fight our own battles, whatever they may be.
I hope this space will help you deal with whatever daily crap you might experience. I hope you can find helpful ideas, advice or even just be able to have a laugh at me, which will (hopefully), make your day just a tiny bit better.
Just Be You, Every day
