Yesterday was my birthday and I received a great card from a friend by Camilla & Rose at Sarah Boddy (www.peartreeheybridge.co.uk).
Having checked out the website this morning, as I wanted to include an image of the card I received titled ‘Trollied!” but sadly I couldn’t see it. I then realised that these cards were for all occasions, whether a birthday, an anniversary or, just to say thinking of you or hello – perfect.
But, what I wanted to share was the comment on the reverse of the card, which just hit the spot for me as I turned 42.
‘Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming …Wooo Hoooooo what a ride! I want go round again!’ Anonymous.
Yup, that’s right.
Life is for living and having fun, about having a balance between work, rest and play. Now, I can say it out loud and write it, but as those close to me would say, I don’t necessarily act on it but those words resonated yesterday, so here’s to my 42nd year.
