Are you in a position of what I refer to as ‘Limbo’? I am... and it really does get me down. The circumstance of not having an income until further notice, not knowing where you will be able to live with all five dogs, children and household clutter which has accumulated over the years? There are only enough funds at the end of the day for the next twelve months, so in one respect I am a lot more fortunate than the many millions who actually have nothing.
It’s easy to dwell on the problems which we tend to burden our minds with. I have learnt that to simplify it all to the most basic of needs is what really matters & really helps. Ask yourself a few questions.
- Am I hungry?
- Am I Homeless?
- Am I loved?
If you actually can be honest with the answers, the truth will speak for itself. The nuts and bolts of real happiness have been misinterpreted into cars, flat screen televisions and on which Island you should be spending your next holiday!
So, whatever your circumstances and you answer... no, no & yes to the above in that order...... life is simply perfect. In the words of John Lennon, I think...or was it Paul, Love Is All You Need. Cherish the special magic of a child’s love;
simply by reminding yourself that if they were taken from you through a tragedy or illness your world could come crashing down.
Love Alone is the one magical ingredient which feeds my ‘over busy’ mind. All the unanswered questions which spin around & around can be blasted into space by simply looking into one of my children’s eyes and immediately knowing.... WOW!!
So a song for this blog has to be....
