Writing this as I’m sat in my garden, drinking an ice cold Moretti with the sun shining. Wonderful.
Something I read on the thread about Rashford written by GregOle (spelling) got me thinking. Life can be wonderful, and on a day like today, with the sun shining, beer in hand, I should be grateful for what I have achieved so far in my life.
Pandemic aside, because this has affected us all to one degree or another, I really should appreciate where I live, the love of my family, and the support and friendships, not only from friends, but colleagues too. I suppose the pandemic has brought this into sharper focus in a way.
However, life, as idyllic as it may sound from my comments above, has a habit of kicking you in the balls when you least expect it. It is because of my relationships with family, friends, and colleagues, that I am able to carry on when things look their darkest.
My message to all you out there: Appreciate what you have, treasure every waking moment, and realise that it’s the small things that matter. Love your family, whatever they do.
As the saying goes (if it’s a saying where you are); Life is not a rehearsal, make the most of it.
Apologies for a sentimental (of sorts) article. Perhaps I’ve had a Moretti too many. Won’t stop me having a few more however.
