We we all have those weeks when everything seems against us don't we?
When we have so much work to do, so many places to be, and people that never seem to be pleased no matter what we do.

But I'd like to invite you all to take a breather, relax and start again.
It's Sunday (at least when I'm writing this it is) and that means we can have another go at the week, and make this one a little happier :)

Today at church, one of the couples came with their newborn daughter, 12 days old. And there was such hope with this little baby. She can be whatever she dreams of, with no limitations and so much love.
I've genuinely not seen prouder parents.
But we're also like that baby, nothing in our past can dictate our future.
And nothing that we think or feel should stop us dreaming and making those dreams come true.
We should reach for the top because we all deserve just that, even when people say that we're not and might beat us down. We're gonna get over that, together.

What I was trying to convey in this post (albeit not well) is that sometimes, we need to take a step back from what we're doing, drop a few things...yeah some things can actually wait till tomorrow, and enjoy life, its hope and all the lovely people in it. We should reach for the stars and not stop until we've got there, cause we know its the place we've dreamt of :)

All you lots out there that have clicked follow on my blog have individually made my day, it's so crazy that people are willing to read about my life! You make me smile every day, and you're one my loveliest things in my life!

So when you get a moment, list all the happiness in your life, cause I bet there's loads :)

Right now, mine are:
  • I get to go home on Friday and be reunited with my family <3
  • When I'm home I get to see all my friends from home!
  • I have some amazing people here in Bangor who love me
  • I'm surrounded by beauty
  • My brother got home safe from his travelling yesterday! 
  • I'm in such a privileged position to do all that I do, and live how I live, with the people I love and the opportunities people would envy.

    All those things you've just thought of, you're so very lucky and please never forget that.

    From the deepest part of my heart, I hope you're all smiling :) xxx
