Pam has written another article this week. It is great to have more words of wisdom from her. I love her insights about life and her honest words about things that most of us struggle with at least sometimes – in this case wanting what we haven’t got and using that as a way of not looking at our own lives honestly at times. Thanks a lot for the reminder Pam. It’s good to hear from you again.
I had a moment today. I was thinking as I do: I have always said that I should have been the princess in the castle and why wasn’t I, but today I realised I don’t think I want to be. I have made many mistakes that I am sure a princess would not make and I used to say as long as my kids learnt from my mistakes it was all ok but this is where my thinking has changed. I have decided the sacrifices and justifying of my mistakes is not right. Yes I have made mistakes but I am the one that needs to learn from them not my kids. They will make their own and it is not for me to fix theirs – they will learn from there own mistakes. This lesson has taken me probably 50 years to get – now I need to put it in practice. And as for the princess in the castle I am just me in my home which is quite ok and acceptable.
