The last of the summer days and the little things

I’m really excited for Autumn but summer is near to its end and I must admit, I’m getting a little sad it’s almost over.

So I have to tell you about the day I had the other week. We sat in the sizzling sun, had mountains of Costco brought salad and topped it off with a make shift pool side BBQ, making smore’s. Yum.

I was in my element. With family, the sun and ‘food glorious food’.

My post today is about the little things in life and how we should embrace life and appreciate these little things.

I often forget how lucky I am. To have a wonderful family, amazing friends, a secure job, a healthy/ balanced diet and a roof over my head. It’s days when it’s raining and you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed that sometimes you forget about these wonderful simplistic things.

So when your next feeling a little down, or your day might not be going to plan. Remember to tell yourself how great you’re doing. You’re not failing. And the life you’re living at the moment is filled with so many amazing things.

Remember, that your family love you. Your job let’s you learn everyday. You have a roof over your head. And tomorrow is another day.

So how did your Sunday go?

Today or tomorrow, when you get out of bed and you’re not feeling 100% positive. Remember that you are great and you are amazing. If today is a bad day don’t worry. Because tomorrow will be better. Give yourself your own confidence boost.

Sometimes I worry about what I look like and stare aimlessly into the mirror. I look down at my bloated stomach thinking, “that’s it, I’m so unhealthy, I must go to the gym EVERYDAY or I’m going to die”. (Sorry.. Who invited the drama queen) Everyday which gets thrown at you just learn to embrace it! We all have bad days but these are over ridden by the good days.

I know this post is super SUPER cheese but I wanted to remind everyone that we are all in the same boat. I hope this post reaches out to you. Some of us might panic and think we haven’t got a life plan, we have no savings, or simply we feel like we have failed.

Ladies and Gents. None of us have! I met a girl the other day who reminded me that we are all still so young and that the world really is your oyster.

So don’t forget. When you have one of those bad days, remember what I said! Get up and keep going.

Lots of love Sheps x
