Absolutely loved this article.
Over the years, I feel as if I’ve been so blessed. Reading the article, it is a fact !
Here’s why, my parents were adults, they were also “wheels that were round, not lumpy”
What I mean by that is that they lived a balanced life together, and Mum still tries to live her life in balance after the passing of Dad. Why so lucky, most people chase certain things, or a certain way of life, Dad just wanted to make Mum happy, and Mum just wanted to make Dad happy. Guess what the result was, they were both happy.
Guess the bi-product…. as the lucky loved kids (Diane and I), we were both happy too.
What is the legacy, I’m happily married, and my sister is happily married. What a gift you leave your kids when you truly commit to another person to create a life of love.
Here’s the other part, all four of us give our time freely to help others. Yes, we enjoy it, and we choose how we do it, I’m not doing it to say look what I’ve done, I’m doing it because helping others is fun. Guess where we learned that … Mum and Dad.
Years after Dad died I was still hearing, your Dad did …. I’d no idea he had, he just did it and enjoyed it. We recently went to the funeral of Dad’s dear friend Albert Winter, he spent his life doing the same … and received an MBE for these services to others.
I suppose my point is, I’m so lucky to just be me, and I’m grateful for it, but how many people can admit the same. There’s so much nonsense pushed upon us, you need this, you must attain this … no the secret to life is to live it … and enjoy every challenge, obstacle and event.
I am happy
If you are not, start loving your nearest and dearest as if nothing else matters and see what happens.
