It’s times like this when we realise what’s really important. Here are a few things I’ll carry forward and remember for the rest of my life…
Health is wealth, never take it for granted because it can change in a heart beat.
Above all else, be kind. The power words have is incredible. They can be the difference between making and breaking somebody’s day.
Value loved ones. We never know when they may be taken from us so cherish them and be grateful they are in our lives.
Stay in contact with friends, reach out to them, trust in them and don’t be afraid to share how you’re feeling.
Being vulnerable or anxious is okay, don’t be afraid to tell people how you’re feeling.
At the same time don’t sweat the small stuff, don’t over think, don’t worry about the things we can’t change. Don’t think the worst or catastrophise.
Take nothing for granted. Not your freedom or your health.
Live life to the full. Say yes to adventures. Travel as often as possible to see the world next time you can.
Be grateful, full stop. Show gratitude. Say thank you.
Never underestimate emergency mini cheddars.
Bank memories not money, for one day they’ll serve us well.
Where the mind goes the body follows. Be kind to yourself, don’t expect too much. Keep thoughts positive, wish people well.
Laugh hard and often. Don’t take life too seriously, it’s short and precious, use it wisely.
If all else fails, put the kettle on, play your favourite songs and have a cry. Know this will pass like everything and after every storm there’s a rainbow.
Just try to keep smiling xx
