The Good Old Days?

21 Jun

Wow what a week. It’s been such a whirlwind of activity. Non stop but how fabulous, my glass is always half full. What is more is that I get a great feeling of the fabulous people I have in my life. I am blessed and living in this moment in every way. This led to my thinking about the ‘old’ days. In reality, do we just create a romantic view of them because they were when we were young and ‘carefree’.

Walking out with my son this morning, I took a deep breath. There was a mere hint of sunshine but it was warm and the blue in the sky was trying its best to peek through. It felt so peaceful that I started to smile and couldn’t really stop. Didn’t want to stop. I was thinking that life really can be all that you want it to be. In that moment, I felt like my children could be safe and carefree and that is what is so important for me.

I do think that the speed with which the world turns these days has left people quite breathless. Many don’t have an outlet for the breathlessness of it all and that spills over into unnecessary confrontation. You see it everyday because I dropped my son off at child are and there it was, a man and woman throwing punches at each other on the main road as passers by stopped to watch. I just can’t. That sort of thing scares me for me and makes me want to hold my children closer rather than letting them grow.

But summer is coming,a time of year which should have more smiles than any other. In my view every year gets better because every year I learn more about how to live in that peace that I have found. My children make me laugh everyday and, as they grow and learn fill me with a new breathlessness, one of pride. Everyday I know I have found my happy.

And with summer comes summer workshops. I met two fantastic young ladies whilst writing my next book in the coffee shop yesterday. They are running a summer scheme, free to young people with mental health issues. What a worthy cause. They are called No Ball Games Allowed (www.noballgamesallowed.com, @noballgamesall). That will be a fantastic scheme, guaranteed with such enthusiastic and inspired leaders.

The Codey Learns summer school will be running too. More detail to follow.

I hope that more people can begin to see how great today is. It is as good as or even better than the good old days. I found my happy and I hope y’all can too.

See you all next week. Stay safe and keep smiling 😀imageimage
