At first I felt angry and felt like going for a run or bashing the dust out of some rugs with a squash racket. Then I felt sad and felt like hiding in my bathroom and feeling sorry for myself. And then I wandered around aimlessly for a while not really knowing what to do with myself.
We have worked really hard to create the life we lead. We have discussed, we have prioritised, we have made plans and choices and tried really hard to live a life that makes us happy.
How is it fair that somebody else's thoughtless actions can threaten the happiness of my family?
And then it occurred to me that they can't if I don't let them.
Crappy stuff happens no matter what, but if I don't react, if I don't give it air, then it wont be so big and it will soon fade away and become part of the back ground.
My priority, my job, is to focus on the good stuff and to keep on living a wonderful life with my family.
We're choosing happy.
I hope you are too.
See ya. xx
