I have a small handful of lovely friends who act like my extended family. An amazing, supportive boyfriend who reminds me that I’m capable of much more than I know. The best Mum in the world, and an equally beautiful family who love me unconditionally.
I feel guilty for not remembering how lucky I am every now and then :)
Sometimes (most of the time) I think I was born in the wrong decade. I long for lazy summer afternoons of reading books, listening to Ella Fitzgerald on the radio, a warm breeze floating through the window whilst I bake and cook for a little family of my own. The only form of communication is by post, or by landline phone. A time that when you see your friends, you genuinely have no idea what they’ve been up to for the past few days, weeks. I long for the slow, simple life. The sweet life, where the little things we enjoy in our busy lives today would actually be the bigger things. Sometimes I think that deleting all forms of social media and staying away from the Internet will help me lead a richer, more fulfilled life. But then, I like being well read and informed and the Internet provides so much scope for education in many areas. Not taking advantage of this would seem slightly naive. I guess I need to appreciate today for what it is, hold onto the parts that make me feel whole and forget about anything else.
