I know this for sure...

Time heals (kinda)

Tomorrow never comes, so stop waiting for it, do that thing NOW

Loving our children is the most important thing we can do for them,
being there always is the second
being a parent not a friend is the third

Never give advice unless it is asked for (oopps l think l just did)

A house is not necessarily a home

Cherish your friendships

You have to love, soothe and care for yourself before you can properly do the same for anyone else

Love is more important than things, a house, a car, if you find it, live it, breathe it....
but if it suffocates you, it isn't real, you will get lost, time to bail....

Life is to short too iron, fold carefully

When all is dark inside and out remember two words,' HOLD ON''...works for me every time

Never settle for less, in fact never settle

Trust your inner voice

  2. Good advice.....you should become a philosopher but not a marriage counselor.........sometimes, I think you gotta settle.

  3. Those are all very good things to know, and if you're going to give unsolicited words of advice, those are good ones.

  4. Wise words, great post, we all need to be reminded of these important things..

    I'd like to add this poem written a very very long time ago.... Simple advice, he knew what he was talking about even 100 years ago... Wonder what he'd make of today's world????

    TIME TO STOP AND STARE

    We have no time to stand and stare?

    No time to stand beneath the boughs

    And stare as long as sheep, or cows.

    No time to see, when woods we pass,

    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

    No time to see, in broad daylight,

    Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

    No time to turn at Beauty's glance,

    And watch her feet, how they can dance.

    No time to wait till her mouth can

    Enrich that smile her eyes began.

    A poor life this, if full of care,

    We have no time to stand and stare.


    William Henry Davies 1871 - 1940

  5. Oh Saz....if only it was as easy as just following those thoughts......It's very much like trying to diet....we know what we SHOULDN'T eat, we know what we SHOULD be doing.... but knowing is one thing, doing is so much harder and needs a mental strength and mindset that we don't always have......

    And Lo..... we shouldn't have to settle....but as the years go by its easier to do so....

  6. Wow Saz, I couldn't agree more - especially that part about life being too short to iron (I make hubby do it), giggle.. (x)

  7. Saz, it's so good to see you on this side of it all. You're pink, ready to burst, perhaps already bursting.

  14. Good words...

    a couple of mine that I used as aide memoires when faced with my stupid behaviour are...

    "Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery live in today"

    And when in a bad space... or indeed an exceptionally good space... "this too shall pass"

  15. Love is more important than things, a house, a car, if you find it, live it, breathe it....

    Yes, and now!

  16. Trust your instincts - yes, yes. My two words, much the same as yours, are "KEEP GOING".
    These have saved me many, many times.

    As to love - it is truly a madness, and "settle"? Is that what I've done, or have I compromised, or did I suffocate?

    Whatever, I'm still keeping going.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
