This is quite a deep vlog on parenting, self-esteem and fear.

I don’t know about others, but I’m actually really scared a lot of the time, about being a parent, about getting it wrong and the consequences of that. I’m scared because getting it wrong really matters.

It matters because I want my children to feel loved by their family and to love themselves, but most of all, I don’t want them to end up like me. And that’s a hell of a thing to admit.

Fear dis-connects us from ourselves and our instincts.

Maybe we all know how to parent our own children, it’s our own lack of self esteem, acceptance and shame that gets in the way. Or maybe I’m just too scared to go on parenting courses or read the books because they may hold up a mirror to my mistakes and I’m just not yet ready to deal with them yet.

I’m not sure. It’s all a journey and I’m learning everyday.

Hoping this helps someone else too xx

Nik Davis
NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.
