Do you ever feel like you’re racing through life too fast, barely holding everything together, but never really going anywhere? Then you’ve come to the right place!
Three Little Birds is the site for you if you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed out, unfulfilled – and maybe a little worthless and undeserving, too – but you can’t really put your finger on why. Or find a way to turn it around.
I’ve worn those shoes and I’m familiar with all those feelings. In fact, I let all those invisible things get really out of control in my own life, and I ultimately ended up suffering from real, scary, clinical depression. It was an awful few years, and not a day goes by when I wish it hadn’t happened, but I learnt a lot during my recovery. And I’m still learning every day!
I started Three Little Birds to tell My Story: how I slid into depression, waded through it and climbed out the other side. It was cathartic to write, and I wanted to share my experience with other women going through the same thing. But when I finished My Story, I realised that it wasn’t the end – the story keeps on going.
I knew that I’d always had a ‘good’ life and I should be grateful and happy, but obviously, even before I got really depressed, I wasn’t feeling that way. So I started to explore every area – my past experiences, my hopes for the future, my mental health, my relationships, my home, my work – everything. And what I discovered was that all of it was a jungle – there was too much, both physically and emotionally, and (under the surface) I was a mess. And I believe a lot of people feel the same.
Our lives are not ‘difficult’ in the traditional sense, but they are just too much.
I started cutting and pruning and purging and burning, and that jungle is slowly becoming a beautiful garden. But you can’t just go in there with a chainsaw or a lighted torch. Like a real gardener, you have to know what you’re doing.
The Internet is a gold mine of information on any subject – but there is just so much of it. Sites for decluttering your home, webinars about organisation, podcasts about mental health … . When you’re feeling overwhelmed, you haven’t got time, or you find it difficult to concentrate, how can you wade through all that information to get to what you really need: the tools and strategies to understand and simplify everything.
That’s where I come in. I’m your interface with that crushing mountain of information. I’ve walked that same road of overwhelm and stress and feeling unfulfilled – I don’t dish out a word of advice without having been there myself. (But I’m also not a professional doctor, psychologist or life coach – check out my Disclaimer for more info on that!) My dream is that Three Little Birds will one day be a one-stop shop for simplifying your life – and through that, learning to live and love that life fully.

Oh, you want to know who I am? Hey! I’m Kat – stereotypical tea-loving British expat, wife of Mr Chef and working mum of three cute-but-crazy little girls. In a nutshell, the three loves of my life are good food, my adopted homeland, Greece, and my family. I’m all about living and loving life fully and inspiring you to do the same!
Are the Three Little Birds my kids? Nope. I’m just a big Bob Marley fan! After my third baby was born (and my depression didn’t return), I couldn’t get this song out of my head. So much so that it ended up becoming a blog!
