I Heart My Blog......

 

(Image by Zoe Power)
 
I love my family.....
 
 
I love my friends....
 
 
I love making and creating...
 
 
I love my vintage sheets....
 
I love my vintage wallpapers.....
 
 
I love my little blog and the community that surrounds it!
 
Life's thrown quite a few twists and turns over my way this last few years. I would never have believed, a few years ago, I would be sat here writing this little blog. By turning the negatives on their heads (not easy, I'm no saint!) I'm coming up with a different life, one I rather like, no LOVE!
 
A new appreciation of what I do have, right now, at this moment. It's no good thinking how things could have been, that's wasted energy, grab what you have now and make the best of it....turn it on its head if you have to!
 
We only really need to change one thing to find happiness. Our approach, to the hand life deals us. Like I said, not always easy, but it is doable.......if I can, anyone can!
 
Have a great day!
 
Ada :) x

  27. Totally agree with you Ada. There is a pile of inspiration cards on my work desk and the one that always goes to the top of the pile for me is "the greatest thing a person can do is make the most possible out of the stuff that has been given to them". Resonates with me on so many levels. mel x
