Tis Christmas Eve!

Well .. it is here again .. Im sure the spaces between Christmas’s are getting shorter every year!  

Hopefully this will be a jolly and happy time for us all – but I know that for some of us Christmas is a time of pain and regret.

I just want to take a moment to say my thoughts are with anyone who is feeling sad or lonely this Christmas and I hope the new year ahead brings you peace and happiness.

Life is a bugger at times and the hurt it can throw our way can cut the core of us all but no matter how much you are hurting, no matter how much you think you will never feel better or happy, it will get better.

This time next year you will be in a very different place emotionally, honest, you will be.

I may not know everyone who reads this .. but for you all this Christmas I give you the gift of time .. it is the only healer I know, it doesn’t always work quickly but it does work.

Sit back this Christmas and think to yourself about times in the past that have hurt you and think on … I bet they don’t hurt so much now.

Take care everyone.. have a peaceful Christmas!

Cards of the unexpected

Leave a comment

We received a card on Friday .. stamped but no postmark and completely blank inside!

I have no clue who has sent it as I cannot identify the handwriting and because there is no postmark don’t even have a clue which part of the country has come from!

I hope whoever sent it has received one from me!

When my Grandma was alive she used to keep the christmas cards she received and score out the to and from in them to reuse the following year (no lie!) .. she claimed it was because she was “losing her marbles” but it wasn’t that at all .. she was just being awkward!  Although I really admire her for it .. wish I had the guts to do that!

Drama, drama .. and yet more drama!

One thing that really does annoy me is the “baring of souls” on social media.   The other night on Twitter there was someone who was crying out for attention by threatening suicide.   Sad, yes.. but is it really what we want to see on public sites.  I think not. 

Facebook is much the same, we can follow romances bloom, watch the flirting and (pretty obvious) inuendoes .. and then sit back and watch it all fall apart.  Do I care .. well, not really.. in all honesty, but in the back of my mind I do feel sorry for these people, on the other hand I do wish they would bugger off!

As I get older, my patience gets shorter or maybe I am just learning to see things in a different light.

One of my great faults is guilt… I know this and it is probably the only reason I am not a master criminal!   It is not my only fault (I have a few!) but probably the one that does hold me back from saying or doing things that really should be said or done!

However, I find that as the years whoosh past my wee ears that I am becoming more comfortable in my own skin and my business skin.   I now tolerate much less than before, personally and professionally and realise that sometimes you are better off with people OUT of your personal life and bad clients out of your business life!

We have just spent a lovely weekend down near Bristol visiting some friends.   We do not see them very often – maybe only twice a year and only for a short time (a weekend normally) BUT their company is always something I look forward to – very easy and good fun!

I see other friends a lot more often but don’t always feel as comfortable in their company – it goes to prove that it is not how often you see someone that makes a good friendship but how much you respect and enjoy their company.

Thanks girlies if you are reading this – fab time and HUGE hugs!
