I hate when people on FB or other social network platforms bring you down. I am a positive person and Its taken me many years to achieve this positive state of mind but as soon as you begin to post positive quotes etc people like to bring you down. I truly think they believe that those that post positive things have not suffered in their lives and that they are just happy and positive because life is good to them.
This is not true. Many of you know my background but many don't. My life is not all fabulous etc. I just choose to look for the small pleasures in life. For those out there that believe I have led an easy life. Here are the facts.
1/ came from poorish background, Money has always been tight.
2/ married a man who now has no job and almost retiring age now anyway. So basically not had a lot of money ever, but then again, not cared much about it either.
3/ My grandson almost died at just 5 weeks old
4/ My eldest son had a stroke aged 30
5/ He also has an Aneurysm which is a worry every day.
6/ I have two Autistic grandchildren
7/ My mum has early onset Alz and has had that for the past 18 years and is now in the end stages. I nursed her myself for 5 years
8 I nursed my dad alongside my mam until his death in 2013.
9/ I am diagnosed with the following Depression, COPD, Arthritis in the spine, neck, hips, hands, knees and jaw. I have sleep Apnea, GERD and other minor stuff.
So not a picnic, but also not the end of the world. I LOVE life, I try to live happy as much as possible, I give as much as I can give and I get love in abundance. I feel fortunate that I have been blessed with more love than I could dream of and so yes, I will see past the darkness, I refuse to be intimidated for trying to make the world a better place.
Stay happy my lovely blogging friends, x
