Why is everything so messed up?

This is a question a friend put to the world today, not in quite the same words (she used the ‘F’ word :o) The person who I’m on about may read this and know it’s her I’ve taken it from as reference, so please don’t be offended hun – it just got me thinking…

The cause of her dismay was her pram had broken, money was tight and somebody had upset her. My response was, “But you still have a beautiful daughter, amazing boyfriend and wonderful family right? Things are gonna break. Prices are gonna go up. People are gonna be dicks. But those things don’t matter, they don’t upset you unless you let them. The daughter, the boyfriend, the family – they’re what really matter 🙂 and they won’t ever really hurt you. So let go of the little things and smile for the big brilliant things in your life ♥ xx”

The above really is my outlook on life summed up in a nutshell. I don’t care what people think unless they love and care about me, even then it won’t always be right – I won’t let it upset me. If I get upset the only person who has made me upset is myself. You cannot blame peoples actions, you have to take responsibility for your own reactions. This hasn’t always been my outlook, infact I’ve only adopted this view in the past year or two, but this time has been my happiest and that has to account for something surely?! By the way I’m not saying I’m perfect, I still get angry and I still cry – but then I get over it and laugh about it and smile more! If something is making you unhappy, be it your weight or your job for example, only you can change it. The people closest to me know all too well how annoyed I get when you moan on about the same old thing but do bugger all to change it =) It may not always be the easiest or quickest option, but if it makes you happy then it’s worth it.

Today in general I have been very happy. The day started beautifully with a lovely walk in the sunshine before work with my doggy Marshall. We walk this route often but sometimes it stops me in my tracks with how stunning it is:

Marshall makes me chuckle with his little habbits, he repeats the same things every single walk and I love that. Like the way he jumps up on a certain wall and scares me half to death by running along the edge…




I had a nice day at work and a wonderful phone call with one of my bestest girlies at lunchtime. After a walk home from work **whilst it was still light** I’ve watched ‘PS I Love You’ and spent most of the night blubbing. What can I say, it’s a good release sometimes =) That film sure makes you appreciate the special people in your life ❤

Sparkles & Kisses xx
