Here’s another blog inspired by you, by the comments you leave and everything you have said. A reoccurring question seems to be ‘How do you do it?’ How do you do it when you work full time? How do you do it when you have a long commute each day? I do it, alongside a job that I love because I believe in living life. I don’t want to put anything off any more. I didn’t want to delay paying off debts any more. I didn’t want to put back getting and finishing my own education any more! I didn’t want to live a hand to mouth minimum wage life any more.
My life is now full of today and tomorrow and tomorrow’s tomorrow. I have so much to be grateful for and I’m enjoying it. I still have dreams, ambition and I’m not there yet. I’m still on the journey of it all, and like the song says, it doesn’t matter if I get there. If that’s the case, which it is, it doesn’t matter if I don’t get there.
I’m up early today as I’ve picked the last of the tomatoes and I’ve pulled the vines and bamboo support canes out of the pots and thrown them into compost corner. I’m up early because the sun is shining and I’ve been able to hang out some washing. I also have curtains washing so they can be hung in the beautiful Cornish sunshine.
I’m not frugalling away my life and I know some of you think………..’let loose, live a bit’, well let me tell you, this is my life and (especially on a sunny day) it’s just fine. It’s a terrible cliche to anyone to say, just do it. If your flat is damp and cold, get a better job, save money, pay off your debts and move to a better home. If your house is too big and you are rattling around in it, get a lodger or foreign students to come and pay you to keep you company! It makes me sound like a broken record but we all need to get some verbs in our lives and get living and enjoying it.
I used to believe that what I owned, what I did, places I visited and people I knew made me happy. I now know I am responsible for my own happiness. If you have ambitions, dreams then get out there and do something about it. It doesn’t matter if I get there, it’s just the journey of it all.
