I'm back! It's been a while since I did a blog but now I am back in full flight! There are many reasons that I took a break from blogging and social media over the last year but it was mainly due to the fact that I simply needed a rest from it all. Life can be tiring and demanding at times and I needed to cut myself off from the greater world and concentrate on myself and my family.
A lot has happened in the last year, most of which was emotionally draining. My Grandmother passed away aged ninety and this has had a massive effect on the whole family. I have seen friends and family diagnosed with cancer and sadly not make it through, and this always throws me off balance. And to top it all off, I had another cancer scare myself! A new lump was found in my left breast and I thought that the cancer was back. It was a very difficult time being back in hospital getting tests done and waiting for results. As it turned out, I got the all clear but there is nothing like a cancer scare to give you a reality check.
As I face into the new year, I feel positive and optimistic. I'm in my forties now and I seem happier calmer than ever before. I know myself better and I embrace my life. Every day truly is a bonus. I am taking a career break and concentrating on my family. Time is so precious and one simply cannot put a value on it. Every day that I can get up and be a healthy, normal person is a dream come true. We are all so busy and caught up in life that sometimes we forget what really matters. Family. Friends. Love. Peace. Happiness. The simple things in life.
