You do you Baby Girl! 😃
There's that famous phrase my grandmother use to say to me,
“when life gives you lemons”….
Now you could either be bitter?
Make lemon soufflé?
Who knows?! That's why I love it…
It Is what you make it, take it however you want to take it.
Let your own self determine the interpretation.
And isn't that what life's all about!
It is yours at the end of the day!
For the longest time I was living a life for other people, their options, their reasons, their beliefs, their life choices.
I was out of control of my own self and mind, having to follow what I thought was the path I had to take, regardless of whether I had actually chosen that myself.
I was being pushed and pulled and moulded into someone that I couldn't quite figure out.
I was more lost than I had ever been.
I woke up one day and realised that I wasn't happy, I wasn't content, and that I wasn't being me.
I didn't even know who 'me' was.
Sometimes decisions we make in life can lead to battling a mindfield of heartache and upset.
Walking over hot coals to try and accomplish happiness or contentment or just plane sanity.
But my goodness is it exhilarating!
Right now I am the happiest I've ever felt.
Which considering the last few weeks I've had could sound rather odd.
I lost my job, I found a new one. I lost my house, I found a new one. I fell so super sick I was hospitalised, it knocked me for six, but I'm recovering.
Knock backs or ‘lemons’ come at us always, but it's how we take it, how we place it in our mind and then use it to grow and carry on that is the real accomplishment.
See the good from the bad.
I'm happy, I'm smiling and I'm winning…
Because baby, I'm just doing me 🐞 🌻 💜
