Work and wine...I think I'm having a vision of what I want my life to look like. I have the night off from recording so I'm getting caught up in all the odds and ends that I haven't had much time to do. I can't wait until I have a shop that is my own, drinking our delicious beverages and driving the dream forward. I've realized a lot in the past few days. That happiness passes and real joy comes from work. I've also been learning to forgive myself for screw ups, which has been particularly difficult for me. Lastly, I'm leaning that other people judge you without knowing anything about you. They judge you based on what they know, not on what you know. Their concerns can come from a good place, so the spirit of that should be honored, but that doesn't mean you do what they say. Those are my Monday night thoughts folks and for those of you who took the time to read all that, I want you to know that I genuinely appreciate you. God bless.
After spending most of the day in ED yesterday due to fainting and being unresponsive for quite some time at my routine blood test 🤷🏻♀️, I got to spend a lovely couple of hours this morning with just my eldest, Anna. I’ve noticed lately she’s really starting to change from a toddler into a ‘big girl’’ #mixedfeelings!! On our outing, we went to one of our quaint local cafes #littleteacups and chose a couple of books to read from the basket they have there. One of the books brought tears to my eyes as I read it’s very important message to my #biggirl...’home’ is simply where your heart is, with family, with friends, with love.
My husband and I decided we would build our #foreverhome last year and we moved into it in March. Although we love it and it’s something we wanted to do to create lasting memories here with our daughters, our dream of travelling Australia in a caravan is still tugging away at our emotions for the reason portrayed in Emily Rodda’s, ‘The Long Way Home’. Home is not about a building or dwelling and life itself has so many adventures just waiting for you. In October, we will actually be going on a small adventure as we hire a caravan and go on a road trip together. Although we can’t afford our own caravan yet, this is still a goal (but most likely only a reality if we win tattslotto 😆 although #gottabeinittowinit). Hopefully one day 🤞🏻we’ll get there and the girls will be able to learn for themselves that both home and happiness lies within. And I admit, it’s something I’m still learning for myself ❤️ Tell me your thoughts on home and happiness...
