Let the sun shineeeee :)

Wow! Today is the first day of 2011 that the sunshine has woken me up before my alarm went off 😀 I love the feeling of waking up naturally. I always feel so much more rested regardless of how many hours sleep I’ve had. Baring in mind that it’s still freezing outside, we have a long way yet til Summer – but it’s a step in the right direction. That makes me very smiley 😀

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 ❤

Cor, what a gorgeous day :)

So I woke up this morning to sunshine with clear blue skies stretched over the horizon. How much better does that instantly make you feel? I looked forward to my ritual of morning walks with marshall the entire time I was getting ready. I headed to work in a fantastic mood which carried me through the day. 7.30pm and I’m still smiling. To top things off, my drive home wasn’t in complete darkness, more dusky and I love it. I am So looking forward to the summer, days like today just make it feel that little bit closer. I hope you all had a wonderful day!!

Well today was just what I needed after yesterday. Work was really lovely, had some friendly & interesting people in and the day just seemed to fly by. Its been freezing cold but clear and sunny, just the kind of winter weather that makes you feel better. Isn’t it funny when your content writing becomes a lot harder? So this evening I went to my best friends sister’s ann summers party. Lots of fun & giggles 🙂 can’t beat a good ann summers party. I was even healthy and walked the entire mile each way, go me!! I must admit I found it so peaceful walking home all wrapped up at 10pm, stars sparkling like diamonds and nobody around to spoil it. I do enjoy walking alone, I find it very theraputic. It’s a nice opportunity to argue things out in my head 🙂

So here I am now lazing on the sofa, my doggy stretched out across me like a wriggly hot water bottle.

Right now life is good <3x

Good morning world *wave*

Today I am putting in my order to the universe. Tomorrow I want sunrise to occur before I wake up. I love that feeling when sunshine flooding through your window and birds singing gently wakes you up before your alarm goes off. It seems so long ago, this winter *touch wood* hasn’t been too harsh as yet but it still feels extremely lenghty. Unfortunately there’s some distance still to go before daylight resumes full service 😦 but please, even just for one day!!!!

I happen to realise the only way for the above to happen is for me to oversleep by approx. 2 hours and somehow – work would not be impressed with that. Anyone know how much longer I have to wait for sunrise to be around 6am-ish?? Would be nice to have an eta, or even better anyone want to pay for me to go on holiday somewhere hot and sunny?? I may be pushing my luck now…
