It’s all about the little things (but go after the big things too)
This is a bridge that I go over when I have a little ‘treat’ and take one of the Ducati family out for a thrashing…when I can
Every time I go over it takes me back to my childhood
See the fam didn’t have much in the way of spare pennies when we were younger
Mum worked 3 jobs and dad was up and down the country (at the time) as a sales rep
Now those of you that are parents will understand; but when it comes to your kids?
You’ll do anything to make them happy
And when money’s tight?
You have to be creative
So dad used to take me and my sister to the lanes and over and over we would go
(Apparently we would giggle like crazy!)
It’s only now as a ‘grown up’ (fucking LOL) I look back and realise what they did for me
It’s why I do what I do now
At times see comments and posts bashing those who want £££ as if there is something bad with wanting to better your life
Money – and wealth – should be (IMO) striven for
Sure it’s nice to have nice things
But when you don’t come from much and you see those with
There’s two ways you can go
Angry and resentful and woe is me and blame
I’ll have some of that
And ultimately that’s what I did – and will continue to do
I think many problems can be solved, or at the very easier, made better with more money
But money that is EARNED and earned in a decent/ethical way
That way if you get all the pennies?
It’s down to YOU and no one else
Then it’s up to you what you do with it
Of course I like nice things
But I want to make sure Anna’s futures safe and I can make mums life is pleasant as can be to repay them for what they did for me – not that they ever ask eh?
All I ever wanted was to never cook my own food, clean my own home, hang out my washing (I swear that’s THE worse chore going) and be able to live life on my terms
(And collect a range of toys and hobbies that – let’s be realistic here – are probably gonna kill me one day #YOLO)
So in closing
Enjoy the small things that truly make life worth living
But strive for the big things so you can change your life and those around you that you love.
