I sit here typing away as our government announces another lock down due to Covid outbreaks. These are very unusual times that we find ourselves in at the moment. But, here in Queensland, we have been so, so, lucky. Yes we have had to wear masks more than we’d like, and maybe we can’t always…
I often wonder why some people are happy with a simple life yet others find negatives in everyday. I find this such a sad way to live. Because, a lot of those negative things that upset us, are usually out of our control. We could not change them no matter how hard we tried. I…
Did you realize the by just breathing we can improve our general well being???? Now this is not our normal everyday breathing, that I’m talking about here. I talking about BIG, DEEP BREATHS. Those big deep breaths that reach right down to the bottom of our lungs. The deep inhale and deep exhale. This is…
We have had quite a blessed life. I feel so so lucky to have had the life I have. I have a wonderful husband, of 30 years, who just adores me, 4 amazing sons, a lovely daughter-in-law who blessed us with a beautiful granddaughter that has filled our lives and hearts with love and laughter.
While my start to life was not easy, my childhood filled with unspeakable happenings. But, as I sit here today, all I can see and feel is wonderful, beautiful things. Suddenly here I am in my fifties and finally the realization came that I have had an amazing life. I have always known that I was happy and had a lot of good around me. As I have grown older in years, I have grown to become so different to the me that I was in my youth. There’s more compassion, empathy and consideration of others. I can manage to find good in everything and everyone. I also have less tolerance for negativity and drama. Some say I walk around with rose coloured glasses, not really seeing things as they are. But, the truth is that’s fine by me. Because, I really just want to see the world, the way that I want to see it.
While financially our struggles are real and have always been there from the beginning. That pales in comparison to the great things that I have witnessed, experienced, seen, felt, heard and been a part of throughout my adult life. Yes, I will admit, there have been many dark days along the way. But, with help and support from others we somehow always come out the other side and forge ahead to find that happy place again.
Life truly is the most wonderful gift. I encourage you to take the time and really look for all those good things in your life. Look for all those moments and those people that lifted you up. Those days when the greatest of memories were created. Forget the bad, that crap is everywhere!!! Forget those negative people, they are probably not the right people for you anyway. You don’t need them.
Just focus for now, on only the good. Take the time to appreciate the gift of life and show gratitude for each and every day you’ve had and still have coming. We each hold the power to have a fantastic, great, amazing, wonderful life. I hope that you all find your power and have a life to be as brilliant as mine has been.
