My hero

Published September 7, 2014 by itsachunglife

2014 one of the most challenging years to date.  It’s not over yet, but it’s only now I can reflect on it on a daily basis.  It was hard to see such a strong man broken it really changed me, knocked me down. He’d never let the family see this side of him before, and seeing him laying there on the bed helpless and heading in for a 12+ hour surgery with a heart condition too.  That scared and worried me beyond belief but I had to put on that brave face as I kept reminding myself the worst is yet to come.  I felt like  I had to keep it together for the whole family.

But visiting my home town this week and seeing how well dad is doing, I can’t help but soak up his bright and lively attitude towards life.  This has given me the reality check I needed to put everything into perspective.  Any other  issues I have are a mere blip compared to what he’s had to experience.  To witness his drive and motivation to rebuild his strength, and live a healthier life has really enriched my positivity bank.  Then there’s the softer side of you which you have let us into, this is hands down the best thing that has happened this year!  It has really brought our family closer.

Life doesn’t seem fair at times, and bottom line is it’s really the attitude you choose to take to pull through it that counts.  There is always something positive to take out of any experience.  Embrace and find the light in the situation, or ignore and it will eventually fester over and consume you.

 

Happy Fathers Day Dad i’m so happy that you are moving forward, you have lit the way for me to get back to being the joyful girl full of laughter once again.

Shine on!

March and Die

Published April 9, 2014 by itsachunglife

So March turned out to be the shittiest month ever!

But instead of airing this horrid piece of laundry, I will share with you one quote per day that got me though this month.  These are the little bits of treasure which gave me hope, strength and the determination to stop crying and feeling sorry for myself and to realise that with every bad situation; if you search hard enough you will find the good that comes with it.

I am also eternally grateful to have such a great friend who has basically given me Tuesday Therapy sessions (food comas and laughs) to transform and translate my heavy thoughts into nice,  light and fluffy dumplngs 🙂  I hope I can be there for you forever my dear,  and out of all this I am so lucky to have this solid friendship with you!

Friendship’s like this are far, few and priceless!

Lets hope like hell the next few months Cloud 9 comes knocking on my door.

Like where the fuck are you?
