One day you wake up and it clicks as to what’s important, what matters in life and any unwanted opinion that came your way was just one sided. I lost a friend who was given six weeks to live to cancer a few years back, once you see what that time limit does. It changes you, forcing you to see and evaluate what is important as the one horrible thing about death is it is so final, all the things left unsaid, you wanting to text or call someone that is gone is difficult, you never really get over it you just learn to live with it.
One of the multiple conversations that came about during this time was about being yourself without having to apologise for it, to do your best daily, learn from your mistakes and see the lessons you have learnt along the way and most importantly is not to procrastinate.
I am guilty of cramming stuff into one day knowing very well that I will not be able to manage it all but it is alright to struggle with stuff. Remember to have a balance and realise that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Thank you for scrolling by and I wish you all a happy new year and happy Hogmanay.
