I am bringing back a bit of my past that I have already posted on certain occasions here on my blog. Like we say, “the past is a good place to visit.” My white and blue jug vase never ceased to accompany some flowers, I love filling this jug with flowers, wouldn’t you if you have some jugs like mine?
Hello everyone! I hope your Christmas week and preparations are going well. Are you all ready for the big family celebration? I cannot believe how quickly the month of December flew by and unimaginably the whole year.
Dear ones, when I was growing up, Christmas was about food, family, beautiful dresses and shoes, holidays from school. It was one of the happiest times of the year. Having raised in an Anglican Family, I have always had a deep connection to the birth of Jesus Christ.
One day in the week, we decided to go out for some visits. Got into the car, simply dressed and off we went down the road to the charming village of Treignac.
I have been thinking about “change,” and who I was this time 21 years ago. I know I was a lot more, soft, timid, and I allowed lots into my life. I am no longer that person anymore.
This time 21 years ago, I was waiting on a call that I thought was never going to come. And now, I am making the call.
I do not know exactly when I changed, or how, but I know at some point, between cutting my strings, escaping my cage, and building my wings, I set myself free. “I have made mistakes I can never rewind and I have excuses that you will never believe” and when I think back on this phrase, it is the one meaning that gives me confidence and alerts me that “I AM NOT PERFECT” and to me perfectly “IMPERFECT ” makes me GREAT deep within me.
I have driven many roads, some of them with dangerous sharp bends, but one thing I experienced along the way is that “the BOULEVARD to TRIUMPH was DUSTY with many enticing stopping bays.” At certain crossroads, I felt there is something I needed to do which I should have done many years ago. I got rid of a streams of connections and they fell out because I shook the branches of my life, and am glad I did.
My hardest regrets are the days spent with the wrong flow of peeps. I learned my lessons, I passed my exams, and I am glad I went through them all, and when I look back on the years, they all make sense to me.
And here I am today, standing my grounds, strong, intelligent, mature and experienced. I progressed from them all. It was not easy, it was hard, but I did it, and I can tell you, I have become a well tough person and still good at heart! I have made the best decisions, and at some points, I have reached a certain parts of my goals in life, though there “maybe” still more to achieve, I am happy where I have reached. Am loving “what I have” and I don’t worry about “what I don’t have.” I AM WHO I AM!
But I know something for sure, “Someday, someone’s going to look at me like I am the best thing in the world.” It is like I want to say that “I cannot be good enough for everybody, but I will always be the BEST for the ones who deserves me!”
The best gift I gave to the people who came and left was my HEART because I gave them a place where there was LOVE, and it made me realised that my dream will defeat reality if I give it a chance. Within the boundaries of my experiences, I learned never to tell my problems to anyone, because the reflection I see from my mirror is the only person who can put me back on track.
Whenever I am in conflict with the ocean I set up my sail stronger, and I know that it is ME vs THE WINDS and no one else.
And where the “WINDS” will take me, I shall GO! (Please note that writings and pictures belongs to My Country Epoque and it is my original property)
