The bright side of life..
Sometimes I have phases were I'm prone to dwell on the bad, let it get to me, over think situations, think how I could've and should've reacted and generally focus on the bad things in my life like the fact that I have dumb ass neighbours who have their music blaring at all hours of the day and are generally inconsiderate, or the fact that due to stress or hormones or actually the doctors have no idea my hair is falling out and for about 90% of the time it's all I think about, whether or not people are noticing, is it really obvious, are they thinking I look like a freak? why can't I just look normal! Or how at play school May always says hello to everyone and last week she asked a little girl to sit next to her to which the girl just looked at her like something you stand in and walked away, so May ended up sitting all by herself and there was nothing I could do about it. May however doesn't let it quash (i think that's a word) her happy little spirit, I can definitely learn a lot from her. Today she was happily sitting at the table painting and singing and talking to her self and she started singing "always look on the bright side of life" and said "mummy you have to look at the bright side of life don't you coz it says bright side not black side!" hehehe! It made me laugh a lot! She's so very wise my daughter! and this is so very true, yes there are bad things and bad people in the world but hey not all is bad and I am truly blessed in many ways. I have an AMAZING daughter and family, our home is lovely, I have amazing friends and have been lucky enough to meet some new and lovely blog friends recently for which am thankful. When I'm stood at the playschool waiting to pick May up I often say hello and no one ever wants to talk to me, I've always felt my face doesn't fit so to speak and sometimes it gets to me but I'm going to make a conscience effort to look on the bright side, I have amazing people in my life and lots to be happy about so the other stuff just doesn't matter.
