Words to live by…

winter-time-2896597_960_720I have read several phrases recently that have really made me stop and take notice…

Meghan Markle’s father once said to her, apparently…’Draw your own box!’ What a powerful sentence… don’t allow others to label you and pigeon hole you. It took me reaching 40 before I finally understood that I don’t have to be the person you want me to be me in order to be happy.

‘I don’t have time’…. In actuality what this really means is… I’m not making time for you! And I have realised, this happens quite a lot… I’ve said it myself, when in reality I could have made time, but I didn’t want to. Something or someone was more important. So, don’t waste your time chasing people that are not prepared to share theirs with you!

and lastly, ‘Don’t expect different results’…When somebody continually behaves badly its doubtful that they either realise or care and on both counts, if they don’t make changes when challenged then don’t expect different results the next time you ask something of them…

and that includes those damn characters we create! Those annoying ones that just don’t want to be put in a box…the ones you find time for because you can’t ignore them, they pester at the back of the head until u let them out and when you get to the end, you realise they’re still indifferent to you.
