December 21 – Future Self.
Just a little update...A very good Friend of mine read this post and very wisely pointed out to me that my yearning to have moved to a more idyllic area could also have caused problems. It isnt the place we live that brings happiness..."Happiness lies deep within us"My Friend is soooo right and I urge her to write a blog of wise words.
Her words encouraged me to think a little deeper. Life would have been different if we had moved when the children were little ...maybe it may have been more relaxed, happier or more fulfilling but it could also have not been like that at all. We would also have lost out on so much. Main thing being we would not have our Beautiful Granddaughter. We adore her and life would not be the same without the joy she has bought to all our lives. I also have some Friends that are Good people that I wouldn't have met if we had took the plunge and moved to Devon ten years ago.
Search deep within yourself for a contented life...Not your surroundings. Our environment does not predict how happy our lives will be. Only us as individuals can do that. We are our own destiny!
Thankyou to Lisa for so much inspiration X
