As I write this, I find it hard to believe that in a week’s time, another birthday will be here. I often think about my birthday last year, which was a very special one for me. I’ve put up a new Featured Post, where you can read how I reached that ‘big ‘O’ birthday. Just click on the link at the top of the right hand side bar. I always think that with each passing year, we appreciate things just that little bit more, and count our blessings just that little bit more.
The important thing for all of us to remember is that “age really is just a number” , even more so these days. I think the important thing to do is to surround ourselves with people who uplift us, who make our souls happy and who make life ‘fun’. It’s not exactly rocket science, is it?, we also have to look after OURSELVES, and to remember to be gentle with ourselves. We might not always get it right, but that’s not the end of the world, is it?
Perhaps it’s better for us not to think about age at all, but to just live in the moment. Sometimes getting older isn’t quite so easy, but I believe we must embrace it - not look back to what might have been, but to always look for the positives in each day, and, believe me, there are ALWAYS positives. Each year of our life is special and precious.
So I look forward to this next year with hope and expectation of good things to come. Despite the weather still being chilly, I decided to go out and make a start on the garden during the Easter weekend. Here are a few photos, which I hope you will enjoy.
Hope the week ahead will gradually see warmer weather over here. This Winter seems to be dragging on and on!
