Hope everyone had a great Easter and time to relax with your family / loved ones.
During the holidays I have had time to think and I’ve decided that I’m going to look for a festival this summer that I can camp over. It’s something that I have wanted to do for a while and I have decided to go his summer, that is if there are tickets still a available. Mind you the UK weather is not a guarantee so it could be a soggy festival!
I think it is very important that we do things we enjoy. Even it it means doing them on your own. I don’t think this should stop us. I have friends who are astonished when I say that I fly out on my own to different destinations. Life is way too short to wait for someone to come with you. My fiancé works away so during the time that we can’t be together, while I miss him terribly, I will not stay at home and watch life pass me by. It’s so important to do things while we can.
I’m writing this post while I’m waiting to board a flight on my own. If anything, these days I fly on my own most of the time.
Remember, you should always put yourself first. I know it’s not always possible. When my children were younger, I put them first, as any good Mum would do, but looking back today, I wouldn’t do much different, but I would definitely make more time for myself. Putting yourself first doesn’t make you a bad person.
I lost 18 years of my life while I was raising the children. While I enjoyed every moment of it but lost myself in the process. I have since rediscovered myself and I am enjoying life more today than I have ever done. The most important lesson I have learnt is that if something happens that you’re not happy with it’s important to let people know. For example, with my fiancé, if he suggests something that I don’t agree with, I will let him know straight away, instead of worrying about it. We have a better relationship because of it.
So, just remember that it’s so important to love yourself more than anything. Nobody else will love you if you don’t love yourself. I learnt this the hard way, after ending a relationship I was in for 27 years.
So remember love yourself so others can love you too.
