On the mend finally

On the mend finally 
.
Showered and put on a dress, in honour of a family birthday that we all celebrated together via zoom this eve with a glass or two of bubbly in our own respective homes.

Family is so important. 
We all get each other through each day. 
Day by day. 
Stay connected.

Wenesday was National kindness day

Wenesday was National kindness day.

Do you know what's really going on in people's lives?  Your friends? Your family? Your neighbours? Those you follow on social media? 
Would you like to know if your friends or family are ok?
Do you ask? 
Are you interested? .
Is what you see posted on Instagram the reality? Or is it an edited or filtered version of their reality? 
The version they prefer you to see and maybe you choose to believe.
.
Do you believe everything you see? 
What is real and what is not? 
Do you compare? 
Does it give you comparison anxiety? 
Do you think you are not as successful, pretty, slim, rich, fit, popular as those you follow? .
Remember, nothing is ever as it seems.
Just as in @hotpatooties new book that I'm currently reading.  The story is so true. .
Every single one of us has stuff going on in our lives that we may or may not want to discuss. 
But it's always nice to be asked.
You can always say thank you and everything is ok. Or no it's not. And know someone is always there to listen to you.
.
So reach out.
Be kind and understanding.
And never judge a book by its cover. 
You may be surprised at what lies inside. .
Btw- the lovely smiley photo is of myself and my son and daughter.

What an inspirational father and grandfather he was.
And what a glamorous pair my parents were..

This photo is from 1950 when life was so different to now.

#tbthursday With love from me to you

With love from me to you.
Happy Valentines day.
.
.
Even if you don't have a Valentine or someone special in your life you can still have a wonderful day and have gratitude for everything you do have - your health, your family, your friends and all those little things that bring you happiness and joy in your life.
.
.
Don't look at everyone else's Instafeeds wishing you have what they appear to have.
You don't know what's really going on in their life.  Their feed is not necessarily their reality.
