Live your life one of 3 ways…

You can live your life one of three ways: Looking back and hating, looking back and crying, or looking back and laughing. The first two keep you looking back. The last one helps you move forward.

Would you do you again?

Rory asks the question:
Would you do you again?

My answer to that is…

Well I would, but minus the shitty parts of my life!

I would love to have a do over, but with no bad parts!

I would however love to relive all the great memorable moments in my life!

I would love to have the time back again with my loved ones, and my beloved pets!

That would sure be awesome!

Healing words of the day!

Conquering any difficulty always gives one a secret joy, for it means pushing back a boundary-line and adding to one’s liberty.

I definitely think if we conquer our difficulties, and face our fears, life will become much nicer.
Plus the sense of achievement we will feel will be awesome too!
Go out and live your life, face your fears, and conquer them!

Once upon a june…

I love the month of june. I love it because its summer time. There is so much to do. June is my moms birthday month. It is the time when I used to get summer holidays from school. It is usually sunny and warm. This june wasn’t particularly warm, but mostly June is a hot month. There are outings, there are family events, there are fun times. So much to do.
This june we had a family party, and we had my cousins wedding. Two lovely events, two fun filled events. We went for summer walks, we took the kids to the park, we went for long drives, we took the dogs to the beach.
I love june, and I love summer.
