Life…

If someone gave you a book of your life, how far in would you read? I’d obviously read from day one up until now but would I stop on ‘today’? I could be tempted I guess, to look a few days, a week or even a month into the future, but what if I didn’t like what I was reading? Could I change the course of the book, my life?

YES!

You are in charge. This is your life!

Stop existing and start living!

It’s taken me a grand ol’ 33.5 years to realise this.

I’ve been stuck in awful jobs, even worse relationships, bad friendships and bad moods.

I don’t regret any of it though.

β€’ The awful jobs… they’ve led me to make a massive decision to start a career in something completely different and new.

β€’ The awful relationships. *sigh* There has been a few! One in particular made me realise I was worth much more than being a headbutt target. (Yes. That happened πŸ™„)

β€’ The bad friends. ‘Drama lamas’ I’m far too old to be involved in such crap. I’ve definitely learned how to spot a bad egg and am lucky to have such amazing friendships now.

β€’ The bad moods. When anxiety Norma, takes over. I’ve lost so many days thanks to her.

But all of that, that’s made me who I am today. If I could re-write any chapter in my life, I wouldn’t. Obviously I’d not let cancer steal my Mum but the rest? It can stay as it is. ‘Cause those moments have led me to be the person I am right now. And I quite like her.

Here’s to the next chapter. I am TOO excited for what it may bring πŸ™‚
