The best things in life, really are free! Let’s never ever forget that….
I feel like we go through stages in life when money and ‘getting ahead’ overwhelms us and suddenly our priorities shift. Our minds become consumed with trying to lead a better life, that we forgot to live the life we already have. Recently I was focussed on buying a house, getting my son into a good school, building my business, finishing my course, earning more money and literally just trying to keep my head above water. And whilst all of those things have significance in my life, I was forgetting to make time for what drives me to do all of that…my son.
Today the sun was shining, a perfect day to head outside and see what the world has to offer. So I took my son to a Floriade, a free flower show in our city. Now some of you might be thinking, ‘a flower show with a toddler??? Boring!’ But that’s why life is all about how we view things… And didn’t we have an awesome time!
We spent the day in the sunshine, walking through the flowers, riding the Ferris wheel, eating ice cream, having a picnic, playing chasey, dancing to the music, having coffee and day dreaming staring up at the clouds. And it honestly feels like it was good for the sole, I have come home feeling energised and at peace with my life. And I gotta tell you, it feels good! Something so simple as enjoying a day in the sun with my baby has been therapeutic.
The way we view our own life, decides if we are fulfilled or not. It has nothing to do with money, possessions, employment or looks, its how we view our life and what we decide to value. I sit here today with no money, no partner, an unsure future and a long list of dreams that I have no idea how I am going to achieve. But I am healthy, I am happy, I have a beautifully smart, vivacious, joyful son and I could not be more blessed.
The best things in life are free….
