I won't tell you a lie. I've had a crap week. In fact I've had some crap weeks on and off over the last few months...haven't we all? But, and I'm ashamed to say, I let this crap weeks get to me. I didn't share it with you, perhaps I should have and then it might not have seemed as crap as it did! But I didn't because I vowed when I started this blog that it was never to be a platform for moaning or self pity, so I stayed away and allowed myself to be miserable in private. Today I felt a little better, more positive and returned to blogland and facebook and was suddenly aware of just how many people I now know who post such wonderful, upbeat positive stuff everyday, and yet I'm sure in the real world they have crap going on just like me. So what to do? Shall I beat myself up for being such a bad person and wallowing in a little self pity for the last few days? Where will that get me? Nowhere. Instead how about I share with you just some of the blogs that made me feel better today? They are written by some lovely people whom I have never actually met. They make me feel like I want to be just like them, they inspire me, they make me think about how I want to live my life, they make me ask myself questions, they make me want to get off my butt and enjoy each moment. So thanks to all of them for that.
So from now on I am going to join the ranks of the positive people and please, if you catch me slipping give me a gentle kick up the butt and remind me of this post!
Check out these lovely people too:

Of course there are many more people in my life, and in blogland, that are far too many to mention, but these ladies in particular for one reason or another have inspired me and helped me over the last few months to keep smiling even if I haven't always felt like it. For that I thank them all, along with my mum, Jan, Lorrie & Jackie & Jocelyn who listened, and hugged.
