woke up this morning to an absolutely beautiful day. The sun was streaming through the windows, clear blue skies overhead which was a sure sign that the spring is finally on the way.
Being in a small country village it’s hard not to think that I’m on holiday as I walk around the area that will soon become the normal sights and sounds of the place I now call home.
I hope I never grow tired of this feeling of wonderment I get when I look around where I now live, I know that the novelty will, at some point wear off, but I sincerely hope it doesn’t. I hope what I now look at and say “Wow, isn’t that great” never get’s to the stage where I never notice, or worse still, take for granted. Time as they say, will tell.
In these times of job cuts, which have hit hard at home for us personally, and austerity cuts, it’s hard not to wonder how we’ll cope but I try to motivate myself and those around me with the knowledge that there are probably thousands of people worse off than we are which was brutally brought to our attention with last nights ‘Comic Relief‘ telethon. With this in mind I regard myself as one of the luckiest people alive. I live in a beautiful part of the country; have a loving family, I live with a beautiful, wonderful woman, I am employed, have an interest that gives me the opportunity to reach thousands and an earning potential to increase my income and the sun is shining, what more could anyone ask for.
It’s hard not to feel lifted when you take all that into consideration and I urge you all not to dwell on the negatives in your lives and focus on the positives. Reach out and try to help those less fortunate than yourselves like a huge number of people obviously have done over the last few months as demonstrated by the huge amount raised by that wonderful charity last night.
Together we can change the world.
See you soon, and remember,
