There will be many who will use this time of year to reflect on their year whilst they’re trying to move forward into the New Year. Where I have clarity and understanding about my life, I still need to convince myself on both. Those fleeting thoughts tend to come and go.
My thoughts go to me when I was small, school and opportunities missed to help me because of my physical and mental difficulties and I’m struggling to move on. Although my children are fulfilling their own dreams of furthering their education through university and travel, their opportunities reinforce my own struggles.
The silver lining is that since those days, I have achieved so much more and that if I had have gone down the mainstream education path, I probably wouldn’t be running my own website now. My life has moved on in other ways.
An opportunity arose that allowed me to get myself to this place, and that has paid off. Now I must continue to work on myself.
