Sometimes I forget to remember that my children are only little and they
need deserve the patience of a saint. There is so much for them to learn, so much for them to know. Societies accepted norms, trends, beliefs and expectations
full of confidence a dreamer)
Sometimes I forget to remember that this is the life that I want to live. It has all that I need and a whole lot more. It has the potential to be what ever I want it to be. I just need to put in the effort.
Sometimes I forget to remember to tell those close to me just how special they are and what they mean to me. The whole emotion thing gets a bit tricky for me at times. I don't know why. I can't help but wonder if that is why I the whole friend thing doesn't seem to work so well for me. Life is not one sided.
Sometimes I forget to remember to trust in the powers that be. They have worked well for me in the past and I am sure they will continue to do so in the future, I just need to believe.
Sometimes I forget to remember to ask for help when I need it. Or take it when it is freely offered. Accepting, or needing help is not a sign of weakness. Help is a wonderful thing. It makes things better for those being helped as well as leaving those offering with a rather good feeling.
Sometimes I forget to remember just how much I know. While I might not have a fancy degree I have actually spent quite a bit of time studying various subjects. Stuff like sociology, marketing, accounting, psychology. Stuff that is at times a little handy for this whole mothering gig.
Sometimes I forget to remember just how much I don't know. There is so much that I need to go and discover. So much to learn, share and discover. And this I must remember to never forget.
Like all the cool bloggers I am linking up with Essentially Jess for IBOT .
Also doing a double whammy and joining in
with the lovely Sif over at At the Bottom of the Garden Ten Things Tuesday
Take heart and remember tomorrow is a new day Rhi.ReplyDelete
I was nodding along with you - especially - Sometimes I forget to remember to tell those close to me just how special they are and what they mean to me.
Thanks I needed to remember that.
Oh I like that about remembering tomorrow being a new day, makes me want to do a quick edit. I am glad you could get something out of it. Thanks for stopping by. Your comments always make me smileDelete
Ok I am hesitant to comment in case I get told for reading blogs, BUT this was absolutely beautiful! My favorite IBOT post this week.ReplyDelete
Please don't forget how awesome you are; I'll remind you if you need it. :)
Oh thanks, what a lovely thing to say. lol on the being scared to comme. You only asked to be pulled up if you were on Facebook so commenting here is more than ok :DDelete
Sometimes I think we all forget to remember! Thanks for the reminderReplyDelete
Lovely post Rhianna - i forget to remember sometimes too...ReplyDelete
So very true.... Today I hope to remember more xReplyDelete
Sometimes I forget to remember to breathe too! I often find myself letting 'life' crowd out the important things. Thanks for the reminder.ReplyDelete
Really true, my hubby and I often remind each other of the boys ages, and that we expect too much from them and to take it back a few notches.ReplyDelete
Lovely post, I can relate to so much of it :)ReplyDelete
Oh I hadn't seen this post before, I wasn't reading you back then, so thanks for sharing it again today! I'm terrible at remembering these things too. I'm shocking at remembering to accept help. I need to work on this. And at remembering to enjoy where we are right now, instead of planning where I would rather be (because the grass is always greener)....ReplyDelete
I adore this post, it sounds so much of how I think. Especially the parts about having patience and how much stuff I actually know and asking for help. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to reading more next year. Emily :)ReplyDelete
I could have written this myself Rhianna - I sometimes forget this is the life I wanted, with a husband and kids and a home to look after. And I do want it, I just need to be more appreciative and thankful for everything I have. Hope you've had a lovely Xmas and looking forward to reading more of your adventures in the New Year!ReplyDelete
A very sweet post, I can relate. And thanks for the reminder about the patience, it's something I wish I had more of :) EmilyReplyDelete
I completely agree, especially the part about having more patience, thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Beautiful. So many wonderful things to remember. We just need a second to pause and think of them xReplyDelete
