A New Month...Time For Reflection

My life has become a mixed bag of emotions at the moment.  Last month saw our family receive two life changing pieces of good, one not so good.  So I am juggling my feelings and trying to find a balance between the two to keep everything on an even keel to avoid the roller coaster ride that is threatening to turn our lives into a metaphorical version of Alton Towers!

When something bad happens, it is easy to roll over and give up.  I used to let bad news get me down and tumble into depression.  But as I've got older I have become so much more philosophical and positive.  When one door closes it is an opportunity to find a new door to open and begin a new chapter in your life, older and wiser from the experience.  I won't let negative influences cloud my life and intend to put all my energy into the things that make me happy.  As long as we have our health and each other, any challenge is surmountable.

A wonderful old friend recently shared a quote with me:

From The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel;  "Things will be all right in the end, and if it's not all right, it isn't the end yet."

I think that is a great way to look at things!

  1. Sounds like you've had a tough time, I hope that things start to turn around for you soon xx

  2. Yes brilliant quote, a great way to look at things. Wishing you well, Mich x

  3. Great quote and a positive way to look at things.. love to you xx

  4. That's a beautiful quote, thanks for sharing it! Makes so much sense.

  5. I love the quote - it is certainly thought provoking. Every family, without exception, have their ups and downs but I think we learn from them and become stronger personalities, as indeed I believe you have.
