We are all Striving

We are all striving to be the best we can be , to live our lives for ourselves and for our children. Life is somewhat a cliche, sometimes it is a blink of a eye and your children are grown up and have flown the nest.

Recent events have jiggered me off the road of life , eyes of the ball ... there I am again cliching.

I can.

Either keep apologising for my mistakes or buckle down and concentrate on what is around me.

Depression is very self absorbing, yet if you don't understand me , then you might understand other folk with it.

I'm not going have any more damage.

And while you are thinking it's hard to let your little one go to school , thinking on that all they can achieve.

I'm now at the stage where my son is at the twilight of his school years but whilst there is a twang of sadness as he 's my only one.

Without my 'life' mistakes he wouldn't  be the wonderful caring human being he is today ,and if you have a problem then 'he' might just be the one that helps YOU.


  1. Well said my dear. And the perfect illustration. Life is all a journey, and there are plenty of puddles along the way, you can jump in them, dodge them or slip over & go a-over-t in them, but you put one foot in front of the other & keep moving on.

  2. Beautiful words, Claire
    Don't keep apologising for your mistakes because making mistakes is how we learn and grow.
    People don't 'get' depression unless they've lived it. Those who have can empathise. x
