Today I had a bit of a breakthrough. I’d been struggling with my imminent move to my mum’s especially as I had just learnt my brother had found a lovely place by the sea. It seemed unfair that he had found a nice new just as I was moving to ‘hoarders paradise’, but at the same time it was good to see his life going forward after being on hold for so long.
Suddenly my flat I believed was too small and imperfect seemed a palace in comparison to my mums house. I also found out my aunt had had another fall, so my caring duties were going to double – yikes!
But when I woke up this morning and realised as long as I had my daughter and my husband none of this really matters. ‘Home’ is really only where we can all be together, whether that’s a ten bedroom mansion or a garden shed. I realised that it’s down to me to create a better, happier future for us, wherever that may be.
Of course I knew it was going to be a lot of hard work, but somewhere I would find the energy and the drive to do this.
If we truly have the power to create a life we love – then this is definitely the time to begin.
