Hello and welcome to my half hearted club. I say 'club' but, it's just me. I started the idea then did nothing about it. 

I’m Harriet and I have no idea what I'm doing.

I’ve had this ‘realisation' (aka : existential crisis) that I’ve been living a half hearted existence for longer than I care to remember. That I’ve spent most of my life putting myself second, maybe even third or fourth, or so far down the list I’ve lost count.

And up until now I’ve been *totally* ok with that.

I was happy to ‘be the supportive side-kick’. To take a back seat. To cheer everyone else on and hide because it meant I never had to put myself out there and do anything where I might fail. Why go big when you can go home, ey?

So where am I at now?
Well you can't suddenly change a mindset you've been growing for the last 30 something years ... so I’m getting content in the knowledge that I’m an occasional failure at life, and I’m working on making good with what I’ve got. I’m basically feeling all the feels and relearning lessons of life all over again.

I’m using this blog as a space for growth. Emotionally by recording small steps, notes to self and reminders. Artistically by giving me a place and reason for being creative on the reg, to develop my artistic style whilst I work my way through a tattoo apprenticeship. And physically, as I build my confidence to be totally myself. 

Hopefully this wildly self indulgent project will at least offer you some light relief amongst any painfully relatable content, or perhaps even help you a little with your strugles. We can hope. 
Think of it as a self care club for when you can’t even with ample cutes added in for good measure.
