I read the above today and how someone has taken this as their go to saying.
Mine has always been, ‘I am made of strong stuff’ or ‘having been through what I have, iit honestly can’t get any worse’.
But I like the positivity of the above quote, it’s a sign of inner strength. Although often I feel that I am very weak and fragile, all that I have been through has made me be more resilient, more aware but most of all stronger than I thought I could ever be.
Embrace who you are
Do you have something you say to yourself when things get tough?
There are days when I think I use every possible emotion.
It really is the little things, the little arms around your neck and the almost words ‘I love you’. The older children and their kind caring ways.
Yes I know seems too perfect, and at times it is. We have flying hormones and moments where everything is just too much. I will sob for moment and wonder why everything goes wrong.
But I am mum and I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t, so I grit my teeth pull myself together and carry on.
Then I end the day watching instant family. Well I cried and laughed, I never thought I would be in the same situation (well almost the same) but I love my kids 2 teenagers, one toddler whom I am guardian to and my angel boy in heaven.
