Trip Down To Memory Lane

by DanM in Blog Post No Comments

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 

That’s bullshit 

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

Or think

Ok

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

For me?

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.
