“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.” Marla Gibbs 

Over the years I have interacted with hundreds of people, young and old and I owe them all a great deal of thanks for the experiences, life lessons and memories. I am guilty of not letting anyone get too close, it’s better for me in the end that way.  I have learned to be patient, to listen, to be there during hardship and to offer the best advice I can when asked. In return I hope I made some impact on them.  

I’m almost positive that some of the mean nasty things people have said or done to me that karma took care of them. I don’t believe in fighting back.  Odd eh?  These people were put in my life path for a reason, and though that reason may not be clear it is important to me to take everything  from the moment I can, and store it for when I need it. 

I believe in myself, my integrity and honesty are among my best qualities. I know when I set my mind to something that I WILL make it happen. I am a strong woman but I’m also intelligent enough to let go of an idea, a relationship or a plan that is not in my best interests. 

I expect nothing from anyone any more. Sad to say really.  I work hard to meet my goals, I’m ambitious to a fault and that in itself is enough to scare many away. I am an incredible listener, in fact I would rather listen to your problems than dwell on my own. I appreciate every little thing, and believe in having an attitude of gratitude. 

Many are now reading this and saying to themselves, “she’s sure full of shit”. But I’m not really. I am a parent who has lost a child in one of the most traumatizing ways. I am a parent to adult children and a proud grand parent. 

Not a moment is wasted on negativity. I make the most of every moment in this life because you never know when it will end. When I do die, I want to leave this world knowing those around me know that I love them dearly.  I want to smile on my way out with beautiful memories flowing through my mind. But most of all I want to know that I made a difference in someone’s life. 


Just a moment…

Take a moment to breathe, to enjoy the small things in life. Worry less, smile more and you will feel incredible.  

We all have stressful situations in life, obstacles that feel impossible to leap.  Some of them are going to be too much of a challenge, let them go. Enjoy the moments that you are successful, those tiny little things that make you smile. 

We have no control over what the people in our lives say or do, but we do have control over ourselves.  If your sad, find something that makes you feel better. For me when I’m feeling overwhelmed I go outside, or get lost in a novel. If your happy let it show. 

There will always be those that try to bring us down.  Negative comments, false accusations and gossip are all hurtful. I choose not to participate, even if I am the target.  My life is tricky enough some days I don’t have the energy to waste on negativity.  

Move past the pain that others inflict. It’s not easy, but it can be done. Karma will take care of them.  Don’t waste a moment believing the things they said, just turn your head and move on. To contradict a bully only makes more issues erupt and more negativity to sprout. 

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

This and That

Welcome to my blog, or welcome back as the case may be.  Don’t be shy, comment, like, share and generally enjoy what I write.

Some of you will have moved over from AHealingLove, others will be brand new and curious to see what I write about.  Honestly I write about what strikes me, often in the moment, and totally random.  I write about my amazing roller coaster ride, better known as life, but I also write about things that amaze or bother me.  I DO NOT ever rant, or moan about life, its just too short for that nonsense. I also allow guest blogging from time to time, so if you have something to say, let me know!

You will read personal things about my life, my family; death, life and everything in between.  I encourage you all to read what I write with an open mind.

I hope you will all hit the subscribe button with your email address so that each blog is delivered straight to your inbox, its the easiest way to not miss out.  Also please feel free to look me up on my social media accounts!
