On the big scale it’s a shitty world out there, certainly a different one to the world I was born in to way back in the 60’s. I can’t change the world, I can’t stop terrorism, I can’t make people step outside their own aura and think about others or make them appreciate the little things in life or get them to understand that the self absorbed meme attitude is just not attractive. It’s 2016, the start of another year and I’ve come to the conclusion that I need some positive focus in my life. I’m spending more and more of my time biting my tongue and feeling irritated when people around me vent and complain about everyone and everything in their life. I don’t want to be part of their negative view of life therefore my aim is to come up with one good thing that happened that day to end my day on a positive note, no matter how big or small. I love nature, I love being outdoors, I love being creative so one way or another it can’t be that hard a task to undertake – although the 50+ hours a week I work might make it a bit of a challenge now and then, time will tell.
I work long hours in a job that requires me to live in so I don’t get to spend much of the week in my own home or with family. Today I spent the day with family, not my immediate family, sadly I have seen none of my siblings or parents over the Christmas and New Year period yet for numerous reasons. I spent it instead with my daughter, aunts, uncle and cousins and an 8 week old labradoodle. These are family I only get to see once in a while because of the distance in miles between us but regardless of what is going on in life or how long between visits, they always make me feel welcome and I always leave feeling loved. Good food, a crowded house full of happy people and a cute puppy, what’s not to like – thank you for a great day!
