Sometimes in life, you’ve just got to jump in. You gotta buckle up, brace for the ride and roll with it. Work hard, climb up those stairs, have a bit of luck on your side and then slide right on down into whatever life has in store for you. It’s unpredictable and liberating and allows for a whole lot of unexpected life delights.
Planning is overrated. Life lesson #32.
Life lesson #7?
Treat your mum on Mother’s Day. She deserves all the flowers in the world. Poorly cooked breakfast in bed is mandatory.
You may have more than one mother-figure in your life, or she may not be with you anymore. Either way, be sure to send a little message of love, whether looking up into the sky or (if you’re lucky) looking into their eyes and giving them a hug.
Sorry I’m not there to burn your toast and give you a hug this year, mum. I love you more than I can put into words. Some day, I hope to be a mother. And if I am half as inspiring and supporting and loving as you, I know I’ll have done good xo
