Last week my daughter had surgery. It was minor. For me – a big deal.
Seeing your little one being pushed into theatre makes all sorts of things go through your head.
I think it makes you slow down a little bit and it makes you think more.
About life and how you live it, what you have and what you take for granted, what is important and what will be more important in future. Yes, it definitely makes you ponder on things a little bit more than on your ordinary day.
You cut out all the other things for a while and focus on the one thing at hand…
Untill it is done. Successfully. And you are relieved. Very relieved that all went well.
During this process I went to get a coffee at one of my favourite shops and noticed this sign on the wall.
On another day it may have gone by unnoticed.
But that day, I noticed.
It made me stop.
It made me think long after I left the place.
It made me want to follow their advice.
I think you would like it too…
It is good advice.
It sounds simple.
But it says A LOT……
Here is to a happy, simple life. I am certainly going to strive for that.
I have a problem saying no to nonsense..how about you? I am going to work on that…
But hey – if all else fail – I guess we can all keep up the smile – part ?!
Have a happy day everyone.
