Stealing back time

Like Comment

The best things in life are free. Money factored in only works to

complicate things and is, in my opinion, the root of all evil. Taking

yourself out into the wilderness (or the local country park) is the

perfect way to tend to your wellbeing whilst providing stolen time for

relaxation and reflection while the kids learn to climb trees and bond

away from our technologically enhanced world.

For me it's the physicality of removing myself from the household chores

so that I don't feel guilty about sitting and doing nothing. Greenery

not only lifts my mood and reduces the stress of the daily grind but

also enables me to leave my worries behind and recognise what's truly

important to me. Finances and work will play on my mind for many years

to come I'm sure but within the blink of an eye my children will have

grown up, choosing to be out with friends over quality time with me so I

need to savour every second, exploring and going on adventures whilst

teaching them as best I can to be the loving, confident and independent

individuals I know they are.

So now I'm aiming to steal more time, as much as I can to be honest because life is short and beautiful and things can be missed with the blink of an eye.I'm working at making the most of every opportunity I have so that I can say that I truly have lived my life to the full.

Best wishes and much love,
