The simple life
Great ideas and plans sometimes mean delays.
I’m the worst person to put off goals I’m passionate about. I am learning that if I want things to look and come across a certain way, I have to wait.
I’m beyond excited to be approached to be a part of an industry I love. I’m one of those people who will do what it takes to learn how to be the best at what I am doing and then worry about the money.
I do believe ‘money is a means to an end’
I’ve had money and I’ve been on ass and lined up in food banks.
No-It’s not fun owing money left, right and centre.
It’s a bleak existence not knowing what the true value of money is.
Today-I know the true value of money.
Its value is not a destination.
It’s a means to get me from one part of my journey to the next.
Some people (who I’ve met in my life) wonder why I make out like I have an endless supply of money.
People have come into my current home and looked around confused —
“How dare this “peasant” make out /look like she is rich”-
First of all,
I am rich.
My idea of wealth is different to the next person. I grew up a certain way and some traits stay with us.
I have also realised the value in ‘letting go’.
No, I haven’t read ‘the secret’ or started an illegal job nor am I involved in work of a frivolous nature.
(If I did want to sell my body or body parts….)
Hashtag “Just saying”
I have Life to guide me. I have my personality, experiences and I have an open outlook on Life.
I am a student of Life.
Be happy. Don’t give your energy to the wrong people, if you do then let it go. What they do with your energy is out of your control.
We gain more from realising the power of letting other people be. It’s taken me a long time and many mistakes and heart aches, falling out with people and picking myself off the floor; to realise I gain so much from everything I do.
There are no mistakes, only lessons to be learned’ is true
Continue to stay to true to yourself. Embrace your quirks and work them.
Flaunt them and love yourself.
Look around you , think of all the people you have loved, admired, bigged up, given a part of yourself to
On reflection you may go :
aargh! what the wtf was I thinking..’
There may be a part of you who is divided —
…well that person is different. They are allowed to have an ” ugly” side because…
…their talent or looks or status make up for their faults.
We should all prescribe a dose of that empathy and love to ourselves-
I am blessed to have a daughter who is a direct reflection of me
She is my mirror image. I love her and I think she is smart, funny, creative, gorgeous, articulate talks too much, stubborn, a bit of. a dram queen.. The full package.
I love myself too.
I am not a super model in a magazine nor do I want to be. I’m not a model citizen – I would have my face eaten by rats in Orwell’s Ministry of Love and be high/ numbed by synthetic products all the time in Huxley’s world.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy indulging in a hedonistic life, zoning out watching and reading ‘Trash’ and watching ‘trash’ too. I
Go OverBoard by all means.
Make sure you get back on the boat.
I’m good enough. Be real — not a cardboard cut up of a media pitch advertising how you should act, look and live.
Thanks for reading my morning musings…
lots of willow’s GOATS2BDazee love
