Sometimes, life can feel as if you’re banging your head against a brick wall, wading through treacle or taking 2 steps forward 1 step back…And if it’s really bad, you can multiply those idioms by 10.
Sometimes, people say and do the most awful, unthinkable things to each other.
Sometimes, your soul withers a tiny bit when you realise just how much hate, anger, jealousy and despair there is in the world.
Sometimes, strangers surprise you with a smile and a kind gesture.
Sometimes, human kindness shows itself as a remarkable force and evil can’t put up a fight against that power.
Sometimes, you take a deep breath in and breathe out the love that surrounds you and you smile as all the negativity gets washed away.
We all need to stop and take that mind clearing breath once in while and instead of focusing on the bad things that bring about misery and pain, look for the joy. It’s there when you look for it and sometimes in the most unexpected places. Here is my ‘Happy Place’. I hope you find yours.
Have a fabulous friday and a positive, cheerful weekend!
