– My Dad.
Ever wonder why I have the positive and optimistic outlook that I do?
My childhood wasn’t the best. Arguing adults who played games and always wanted to win and get the better of each other. Emotional blackmail, arguments, awkwardness and silences filled my childhood. Times were bad and for years I longed for a ‘normal’ life, home and family. I searched for and found adults I could trust and rely on to help me get through. Adults I still rely on to this day.
I’ve been close to seeing the worst it can be. And I’m so pleased to be where I am now. I have my own ‘normal’ life, home, work and family now. I have my health, happiness and friends and family around me. I’m very fortunate and I remember that every day.
My best friend is the most laid back and optimistic person I know. She doesn’t see the point in worrying. She just gets on with life and enjoys it. She thinks logically and leaves emotions at the door. Worried that your bum is too big or that your nose is bent? Other people are probably more worried about their perceived flaws to even notice yours.
If you have things in your life that you are unhappy with – be it your health, weight, nutrition, fitness, relationships, work or any area of your life – find out what it is you’d like to improve and make changes to improve it. Bit by bit you can make changes to your life so that you become the best version of you – be the best you can be.
Life has its ups and downs and you can handle them. When life goes down, look at ways to improve it and make it better. Don’t worry or stress yourself – aim for the UP instead. When life is up, smile, relish it and take others along on your happy journey.
Think of the sunshine, laughter, rainbows and Disney birds and smile.
Baby, I see this world has made you sad
Some people can be bad
The things they do, the things they say
But, baby, I’ll wipe away those bitter tears
I’ll chase away those restless fears
That turn your blue skies into grey
Baby, when I get down I turn to you
And you make sense of what I do
I know it isn’t hard to say
But, baby, just when this world seems mean and cold
Our love comes shining red and gold
And all the rest is by the way
There should be laughter after pain
There should be sunshine after rain
These things have always been the same
So why worry now?
Why worry now?
I’d like to add that my Dad randomly told me he’s proud of me today. 🙂
He’s not only a wise man, he’s a great Dad and a very nice man too. 🙂
But then again I’m may be biased. 😉
