Good things happen. Usually to bad people. But you know what good things happen to good people too. So I’ve had my fair share of “bad things happen to good people” but my time has come for good things.
I have taken time recently to step back and assess. Assess things. Assess life. Assess me. I am by no means a sit back and relax person. I get itchy feet. “Ants in my pants” as they say (hehehehe that makes me giggle just typing that!) I always plan to have a rest, take a break, relax and put my feet up. But it never happens. Why is that? So whilst I haven’t necessarily been sitting back doing nothing I’ve been thinking…
I am a “doer”. I have grown up in a family where work ethic is way way way up the top of the list. I’ve been fortunate and always had a stable job since I was able to work at 15. I work hard. I always have, and have put in long hours with that hard work. I believe the effort I put in is rewarded. Mostly anyway, whether its seen or appreciated, it doesn’t matter. What matters is that I know I have done my best. That is a good thing.
I’ve mentioned before the type of person that I am. Kind, caring, loving, loyal… I believe in treating others as they treat me or how I wished they’d treat me. I could now count on about two hands my nearest and dearest friends. I’ve had my share of heartbreaks in the friendship journey. Some see my kind caring nature as something they can use for their own personal gain. This hurts. And I have now shed a few of those types. I have quality friends, I don’t need quantity. And I have to say I have some of the most amazing friends a girl could ever ask for. There when I need them, as I am for them, providing each other with the love, support, friendship and laughs we both need. That is a good thing.
My family is my world. Morning, noon and night they are foremost in my thoughts. I live for their smiles, their laughter, their presence. My husband and my two gorgeous children are why I do what I do. They are the happiest they have been in a long time. As am
I. Even with some difficulties going on in the background (well it wouldn’t be my life if there wasn’t a little bit of drama somewhere!) we are all really really happy. That is a good, no great thing!
Many a times I’ve thought “why does the bad stuff happen to me” it seemed to follow me, it didn’t matter what choice I’d make, what path I chose, bad stuff happened. But in my recent time to take a breath, stop and look around, the thoughts have been changed to “you know what, I’ve got it good. Good things are happening to me”.
So tell me, what good things are happening to you?
