I woke up with a bit of a sore head from a boozy lunch with friends to celebrate my birthday so this post is 24 hours late!! This is my blog so yes I’ve fallen at the first hurdle but did have it in my head that I would really start this on 1st August, knowing that I might not be up for much after birthday celebrations.
The idea of this blog came to me a few weeks ago when I was in a particularly funky low mood and with my birthday impending I often find that it makes you think about your life the things you achieve. This was compounded by reading a book & watching a film where both the lead characters had life limiting illnesses, the main theme for both of these was about living a full life and making the most of it. Also a couple of people I know died suddenly which again makes me realise that life is fragile and precious.
With my hand on my heart I know that over the last few years I’ve got sucked into a mindset where husting is the norm and focusing on my challenges rather than opportunities and allowing life to get on top of me and not really be in control of it the phrase that comes to mind.
So it’s time to take control.
