I like to think. I'm a sucker for the odd TV series, heartfelt film, and hopeless romantic book. All give me the chance to get lost in little bubbles of thought. To me, getting lost in thought is a very beautiful thing. It gives me time to reflect and refresh, and when I need to run away for a second it lets me, it gives me the chance to be me when life gets a little crazy. I have a wild imagination, like you wouldn't believe.
This weekend I watched something on TV which really got me thinking. People say we never learn anything from the TV, but I don't think that's true. It wasn't anything educational, just something true to life, something that brought back a time when I was heartbroken and scared because I thought I might lose my daddy, it overwhelmed me so much so that I had a sob to myself. It was powerful.
Sometimes we get so lost in life that we forget to tell people we love them.
I have an excellent life, everything I could ever wish for. Parents who love me, an education, a wonderful man, a beautiful life. I'm healthy, happy and have food on the table, and in my moment of thought I realised how much I take this all for granted. Sure my life's had its ups and downs, it's not perfect, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't have much more if I tried.
I miss my parents everyday. I miss that brother of mine, and my baby sister who's turning into a little lady, I love them all, and still I always forget to tell them how much they really mean to me.
So this week, take the time to tell people how much you love them, while you still can.
I'm not usually one for the emotional roller-coaster, but hey, I'm only human!
Happy jubilee weekend!
