Hello!

I’ve learnt some hard lessons in life and I keep discovering new ones. This year I’ve learnt to rely on myself more, to get out and do things for me and my family instead of looking after others. I’m important too and if I can see that others are then surely people can see that I am too? My point is that this time instead of dwelling on how much more I give to people, I have the power to make my self happy and to hope that people will notice that I’ve drawn back a bit and wonder. And if not, well that’s their loss. So I’ve joined the gym for my self in the hope I get fit and meet some new people, I’ve joined a play group for my son and plan on joining another for my daughter, I’m still messaging and talking to my friends but I’m not putting myself as out there and volunteering for too many things. I choose life and to live as happily as I can in the world that I have. And really… it’s a pretty great world!

  • It is easy to burn yourself out caring for others and not taking enough care of yourself. At some point you have to learn to say no matter how hard it is. If you over-do it and get sick, who is going to care for you. There is no guarantee that those you have helped will help you.
