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 


  1. You are so right! Keep the happy and positive thoughts and comments coming! Try to ignore the negative no matter what!! Stay strong my friend!

  2. So sad that you had to even think about writing this post... I guess your just too nice to tell them to go F**k themselves like I would lol. If it wasn't for people as positive as yourself I would be an evil grumpy the Universe thanks you heartily ;) XXX

  3. It’s wonderful that you have the strength to be so positive JUNE, something to be admired. Stay true to yourself and enjoy those important around you. I now chose to keep away from FB as there was so much negativity it outweighed the good sadly.
    Always hear to read and listen on blogger though.
    Hugs for a super weekend Tracey xx

  4. Ignore the trolls. Unfriend them or block them.
    Your true friends are here June.
    Sending you an Angel xx

  5. June!! Be You!!! You don't have to explain yourself to anyone! Live your truth! The people who act this way, want to keep you small. Want to keep you in your old story! Believe you me, I understand!! Love you my friend! Big Hugs!

  6. As the wise Einstein said:
    “Stay away from negative people. They have a problem for every solution.”
    The less you respond to negative people, the more peaceful your life will become.
