Hi fellow dreamers! While I was enduring my 36 hours of hell I was doing whatever I could to distract myself from what was happening. One of those things was thinking about this blog. New thoughts, new blog ideas……unfortunately I have forgotten most of them as I was incapable of writing them down, but I have managed to retain some of them.
The main thing was I realised just how far I have drifted from my original thoughts behind Sugarloaf Dreams. I have been known to post the odd opinion piece which I have learned most of you don’t like. I’ve had a few wise ones explain to me why…… I appreciated that and understood completely. I even had some say that they enjoyed reading about me, crazy people……maybe it’s because you realise your life ain’t so bad. So I thank my honest, outspoken friends, after all I write for you, not me! That was the lightbulb moment I had last night.
When I started Sugarloaf Dreams it was essentially a blog about me and my life, warts and all. Not because I believe my story is so special that people should or would want to know about me but to show people you don’t have to have an exciting, luxurious, perfect life to make it special. My main aim was to show people that nobody is perfect or lives a perfect life. Being just you is absolutely acceptable and don’t let anyone tell you different. Not everyone is always happy or healthy or rich……but everyone is worthy of a good life.
Sugarloaf Dreams was about inspiring others to just be themselves, work with what you’ve got now, not for what you wish you had. Even the wealthiest of people don’t have it all. Money doesn’t buy health or happiness. I’m hearing you…..but it would be nice! Yes it would, but you work with what you have.
So I am going to go back to the core of why I started this journey in the first place. To make people laugh a little, cry a little, pee their pants a little occasionally….. but most of all for people to be kind to themselves as well as others around you. Love your family and friends and most of all love you, warts and all. Perfection for one person will not be the same for someone else, and that’s ok. Difference is what makes us special, unique…..us. You all know I’m a little crazy……fairy dust, magic and miracles is still my mantra……no matter what life throws at us, we can always keep going. Even on the darkest of days we need to find two things….something to make us laugh or at least smile and something to love……it doesn’t have to be a person, it can be a pet, a flower a photograph or simply yourself.
From the bottom of my very full heart I thank you for being there for me, but most of all traveling this rocky road of life with me. Wishing you all love, light, fairy dust and the occasional bit of magic.
