Wonder Woman

I know I haven't posted in a while but I have been so busy trying to be wonder woman I really haven't had the energy left for it. That sounds really exciting but in all honesty wearing a pair of spandex pants is probably the closest I'm ever going to get!… Not that I actually own any spandex either, just to be clear ; )

So what have I been doing?

Well, following on from part 1,2,3,4,……blaughgghghgugh I decided not to write part 5! I have a half finished version of it but I don't intend to post it. So much has happened since then that I just don't want to look back. I could list the catastrophe's in bullet points for you but that's not really me and I won't let any of this define who I am as a person!

It may not define who I am but it is always going to be a big part of my life, and for that reason I've had to re-build life around it rather than brush it under the carpet. I don't always get it right and there are so many days when I still wish it wasn't me but I don't allow myself to think that way too often… I have learnt that even when you think there could be no "worse" it is still possible so you just have to make the best of what you've got.

I guess that's a lesson many people don't ever have to learn and, as a result…they let life pass them by. Everyone needs a purpose and mine kind of found me, it's funny how things work out. I could have spent my whole life never really being happy, because I didn't know what sadness was, not truly. Of course I still wish it hadn't been me, but I am thankful for the lessons I've learned along the way and the friends Ive met who get me through the day.

I don't ever achieve very much in a single day, but put all those days together and it's surprising how it mounts up. Four and a half years has felt like an eternity, but I'm still breathing… perhaps that is enough to warrant the spandex pants?
