A best friend of mine has recently lost her mum and to be honest it shook me up quite a bit. It got me thinking about how many people are existing in their life rather than truly living life to the full. When I say to the full, I am not talking about having the latest gadget, a big house or new car. I am talking about truly appreciating the beauty of life, the everyday, the walk to work or drive through the autumnal countryside. I mean sending a message to a loved one or letting someone know that you are thinking about them. The little, what some may say basic everyday things. It is these small gestures that can mean so much to someone. Quite often what we need is to stop for a moment, look around and see what is right under our noses. Look at the beautiful colours in our world, our animals, our nature, our family, friends and new people that we meet. Stop and appreciate how beautiful people are in our world. We are all one of these beautiful people.

Realising recently how at the age of thirty eight years of age I am finally in a place where I am living my life to the full, achieving more and more each day and I do truly believe that I am reaching my potential. I struggled with my choice of words here as I am continually growing hence my potential is ongoing. I am going up which is the important thing. It makes me think about all the people in the world that due to one reason or another are stuck, either in the past or living in the future and do not even know what their potential is. Some may even not believe that they are worth more or can be more. You are worth it. We are all worth it and be can always be more. Learning to believe in yourself is a lifelong journey in itself however it is always possible and it is never, ever too late. #never too late

We all have our challenges in life and as I was sat in a coffee shop a while ago it struck me how so many people are so busy and/or fixated with their own life, maybe their own struggles that I think we forget we are surrounding by other people. We all know how isolating it is when you are going through a bereavement, a divorce, anxiety and it is at these times when we need people to acknowledge us, to make us feel like we are less alone. I always smile at people or comment on what they are wearing, as you never know what someone is going through at a particular time and how much that minimal gesture could help someone. We all need people to survive and there are a lot of us in this world. Think small and smile. #smile #world #help
