Life lessons have been plentiful lately.
Life has turned upside down, inside out and back to front in so many different ways over the last few years.
And what I’ve learnt about that is that it’s okay.
It’s all okay.
Here are some life lessons I’ve discovered after divorce. And yes, they are pretty obvious. But still, let me share them with you:
Our plans aren’t set in stone. Who we will share our lives with. Or what, where, when or how our plans will work out.
Sometimes our plans work out. Sometimes they won’t.
But that’s okay.
Just keep moving forward.
Make new plans.
Change them if they don’t work.
Opportunities are Everywhere
There will always be opportunities.
There will always be better.
In every aspect of your life, there is something you can do to improve it.
It isn’t the lack of opportunities or chances. It’s that we don’t notice them when they appear, or we don’t look for them in the first place.
I Should Not Drunk Text
‘Oh no!’ my friend Caroline exclaimed, when I told her I’d spilt my wine over the kitchen table. ‘You’re drinking wine? You aren’t going to start drunk texting me later, are you? I won’t understand what you’re saying!’
Note to self: Don’t drunk text. Ever.
Know Your Worth
Nobody has the power to make you feel worthless or unloved.
If a person lacks the empathy or character to treat you well and with respect, the problem is not yours, it is theirs.
Move on, as hard as it might be, and love yourself enough to keep moving further and further, so you can become stronger.
Know your worth.
Nobody has the power to take it from you.
Me-Time Is Vital
For years and years and years I put everyone before me. What I’ve come to realise is that me-time is vital for my well-being in all respects. Physically, mentally and emotionally.
It doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. A soak in a bubble bath with a glass of wine and a book, a workout session, getting my nails painted, reading in bed with a cup of tea and some luxurious candles flickering away, or a darting off for sneaky little sun bed after grocery shopping does wonders for my soul.
I Really Can Do Anything I Want To Do
Or at the very least, I can give it a go.
What’s to stop me?
And why would I do that?
And let’s face it, I want to fit a hundred lifetimes into this single one I have.
I want to make the most of it!
And boy, do I have a list and a half already.
