Live and Love Life!!!

Many of you have been e.mailing me asking where I am.

I didn't realise it has been 2 months since I last posted; my sincere apologies to my followers.

What excuse can I give? I don't have one actually. I've just been enjoying the summer here in Spain. The heat does become unbearable at times, but I try and refrain from complaining, especially as I originate from rainy London! I have to be very careful when I speak to friends in the UK, as just mentioning how unbearably hot it is can be met with shouts of " you are so ungrateful", "you don't know how lucky you are", "it hasn't stopped raining here" (as my friend in Ireland said last night on the phone) ........etc etc

While thinking about what to write today, I suddenly noticed a wonderful poem/piece of writing that I have had stuck on my fridge for years. I don't know where I got it or even who wrote it, but I think it is a wonderful reminder of how life should be.

Here it is:

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person
that wasn’t supposed to ever let you down, probably will.

You will have your heart broken probably more than once,
and it’s harder every time.

You’ll break hearts too,
so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You’ll fight with your best friend.

You’ll blame a new love for things an old one did.

You’ll cry because time is passing too fast,
and you’ll eventually lose someone you love.

So take too many pictures, laugh too much,
and love like you’ve never been hurt,
because every sixty seconds you spend upset
is a minute of happiness you will never get back.

Don’t be afraid that your life will end,
Be afraid that it will never begin!!!
