Life is precious

Why write this post?

Having attended 3 funerals recently, it has made me think more about how precious time it. I hate housework, so I have outsourced my ironing; the cleaning and gardening are next! The next thing is how much time each day I spend deleting promotional emails from my inbox from shops I bought something online from once, or restaurants that I do not eat at.  So what I have I done to rectify this? Unsubscribing of course!

The next thing I am doing is decluttering my house of paperwork, clothes and junk that I do not need. A little morbid, but if something happened, family members will need to do this, so I am doing it for them. Getting all of my paperwork in order is also important, as well as updating my will to make sure everything I want for my family is clearly laid out. If you can, I would advise that you write a will and get yourself life insurance to make sure that your family are looked after, and there is clarity on what will happen in the future.

Thinking Differently

Over the years, I have lost many people in my life, old and young, none of these losses are easy, however each one has made me think about how I live my life.  I make the most of everything, having a great balance of spending and saving money, and making sure I spent a lot of time out and about with friends and family.  I have a job that I love, and great family and friends around me.

The thing that I learned the most is that life is too short, and do not worry about anything; what is the worst that can happen?! I can sleep on a washing line! I thought I might find it hard to leave my daughter when I need to go out, or go to work to use a keep in touch day, but I do not as I know she is fine! A few texts, yes, but not worry.
