Why would I want a house owned by the mortgage company, cars leased and never owned and a miserable, boring life where my only income is as a result of someone else's hard work? That's why some people are so bitter and twisted because they are stuck! They are unfulfilled. I speak from bitter experience. Just to clarify this was the life I left behind when I lost my job AFTER being diagnosed with Menieres and had to rely on support from others. I hated being dependent on other people. It has taken a lot of soul searching to find my new way in life and accept that what I lost was lost for a reason.
That's the main lesson I have learned in 2014. I don't need material things or the wrong people in my life. I'm now making my own choices and my own life again AND teaching my children the real values of life. I may not have LOTS of material things and designer clothes but I have REAL values, fabulous children and peace of mind. Money can't buy them.
These are my lessons of 2014 :
driven through ignorance and jealousy.
people is a powerful driving force to succeed.
CHILDREN from succeeding in their chosen field.
more powerful than the lengths people go to, to stop
a child from succeeding. It taught my teenager a very
valuable lesson in life.
bordering on nasty with no real justification.
negativity from adults.
fulfilled life. Don’t let other people’s failure to grow
prevent you from blooming.
and improve the quality of thinking and
understanding on future generations.
book being published, not the power of
understanding my own life and mind, BUT to see my
teenager develop into a well-grounded,
compassionate, clued up and motivated young man.
JOB PART DONE!
Some things I could have done better, some things I will change for 2015 but overall I made a start. I smiled a lot this year at other people's attempts to stop us from achieving our goals whereas previously IT would have derailed us.
It has been an extraordinary year for us. My first EVER book published, independence, both boys doing really well, Wes gaining solid GCSE’s and earning his Academy place. I am bursting with pride but I know I am a work in progress. It may take a few more years for us to be self-sufficient but I have set my goals & I am on target. NO one can stop you if you really want it & are prepared to work for it. 2015 looks very bright and very exciting. I don’t think I have ever looked forward so much to a new year as I am now AND 2014 has been truly uplifting and empowering. I will always look back on this year as the year I took control of my life and saw my children grow more in one year than any other year. I DID THAT!! We are not that special, we just know what we want and we are prepared to work for it. You can do it too x
In 2015 the inquests may come to an end. I want to send all my love to the victims, families and everyone who was involved in Hillsborough. Anne Williams taught me how to stand up and be counted and that lesson has been priceless, no more so than this year. God bless to you all. Justice is coming...
Have you set your goals for 2015? Do it now NOT as a New Year resolution xx
I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas and the very best wishes from all my family to you all in 2015. Let’s all work together to make the world a happier, tolerant and peaceful place.
