Further to my 4am ramblings, here are some 3am ones. These are some pearls of wisdom that those close to me have chose to impart at various points in my life; they are wise, wise people..
From your Great Gran:
Never close any doors- always leave all options open.
From your Mimsy:
Always have self-respect. Know your worth.
From your Gramps:
(This was something that I imagine was a throw-away comment but had a profound effect on me when it was said)
If you don't like something, change it.
Do I have any other things I want to say?
Surround yourself with people who want you to succeed. Dream big- SO BIG. Always be positive (prozac helps). Remember that brunch is the best meal ever. Feelings are important. Always make sure your voice is heard; your opinion counts. Appreciate the art of the afternoon tea. Don't get clingy cats that wake you up at 1:30am by purring in your face. No matter what you do, I've probably done worse. You're amazing; never let anybody make you think otherwise.
Hopefully this will be the last of philosophical mummy for a while... None of these life lessons really have any bearing as to what is currently going on in life (apart from the one re: cats). It's 11 days until London marathon so maybe I'm just paranoid I'm going to die during it hence the onslaught of random crap I want to pass on to you.
(I'm not going to die- I am an excellent average runner. Maybe I'm just surprised I've made it to 27?)
Lots of love,
3am Philosophical mummy
