1. For my boys

I have set up this blog to share with my boys, hopefully in years to come.

To show them that if you dance in the rain, life will bring joy, no matter what is served to you.

For them to understand, that whatever happens, you have a choice. To see the positive, or the negative, in a situation. I hope that this shows them how important it is to see the positive. 

I also hope it makes them see that it is ok to have tough times, they make you, you. Life is richer because of all the experiences you have, the good and the bad. If you were never sad, how would you know when you are happy. 

In the past few weeks I have felt every emotion. The positive ones, love, laughter, hope, joy, have all shone through stronger than panic, despair, sadness and anxiety. 

No I don’t want to have cancer, I don’t want to be strong, I don’t want to smile when I feel like crying. It isn’t easy. However it is ok, because even the darkest of times bring something into your life. It makes you appreciate the little things and the everyday,  makes you not take anything for granted, makes you a better person. 

You also get to spend lots of time with family and friends too!
