In my life,
I’ve lived, I’ve loved, I’ve lost, I’ve missed, I’ve hurt, I’ve trusted, I’ve made mistakes, but most of all,
I’ve learnt ‘shit’ happens.
Try not to pay attention to the bad things and try not to dwell on the sad times. Focus on the good things, the things that you have achieved, how often you do things for others and how much you care.
I am often guilty of trying to things that make everyone happy and forgetting about myself. But that’s not always healthy, I must look after myself too.
There are many types of family and I can assure you that there is no perfect family. What is seen on social media is a tiny snap shot of mainly the good times. Unfortunately in my social media history not all my posts are happy – if you read them and not just look at the pictures.
I had my first son at 19 then my second at 21 and had 3 step children the entire time. My choice and I wouldn’t change it for the world. The 14 years since my first son have been a rollercoaster of, good times, ok times, bad times and awful times. That’s life, we have to take every moment as it comes.
