I know, I know, I sounded like those cheezball memes that everyone loves to hate (and make into their own secret Pinterest boards for rainy pick me ups) but I truly want to live life to the full. My friends laugh at me for my shenanigans, and say they wish they had my energy, whilst I admire their contentment (and ability to sit still for more than 15 seconds).
There are things that I want to improve in my life - who doesn't - but at the same time it's good to have a reminder to just stop for 10 minutes, watch the sunrise over a good coffee and just 'be'. We are such a lucky generation - we have the tools to create much the life that we want to live with a little elbow grease, a little bit of luck and a heck of lot of determination. Many of our parents didn't have the same ability to pick up a cheap flight and disappear over to the continent for a long weekend. Our Grandparents weren't able to move to the other side of the world and be able to have video conversations over a cup of tea and keep family relationships strong.
I don't share many of my blue days here, because I want to have my own little nook to just celebrate and enthuse. I probably need to become more cynical, stop overthinking everything and wear a little more make up (to stop looking like such a hill billy.)
