Butterflies

Sometimes you’ve just got to go with your heart and take the risk. When butterflies come back in your stomach it makes you realise that time does heal. It takes time to trust people again but you just know when that time is right.. when that person is right!

Smile

Happiness is definitely within, life is too short not to be happy and today I have a big happiness grin on my face 💕.. the second picture is my brother Ben who has autism, you may see his smile instantly but you won’t probably see he is wearing a ripped t-shirt! . This shows how sometimes smiling can hide a multitude of emotions. At the minute a lot is going on in our family with sorting out Ben’s future as he leaves his residential college in July and has no placement because of a massive failure by social services 😡 When he is anxious he rips t-shirts, he shows challenging behaviour but it’s not because he wants to it’s because he can’t explain his feelings in any other way 😢

But as a family we will give him the support he needs to get through this because that’s what we do because we love him .

Happiness comes in many forms so just go with the happiness of the moment and take one day at a time because happiness is not a given!

Passage over time

Life changes, people change! social media has a way of reminding us what went on before.. if only it could predict the future! 

Things happen and sometimes our reactions are to delete and block instead of facing what scares us most..the truth! 

Could you imagine if there was a world where when you post a picture or status you could never delete it? , it would be a lasting reminder good or bad… may be then we would think twice about our actions. 

I’m writing this because I’ve realised that a part of my history has been deleted as if it never happened, pictures gone, meaningful statuses deleted, people unfollowed or blocked just a whole chapter GONE 😢and it’s sad, I know it’s just how life goes but it shouldn’t be like this. We should keep those memories alive because it happened, it was real in that moment  and that’s all that matters. 

Then if we look back at those memories we might not feel the need to bad mouth those people to score points, to tell our variations of the truth to control how new people see us. 

~love life good or bad, be brave~
