Evie’s hair salon was open for business today.
I look good, right?
I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and re-evaluate things recently.
I’ve realised that I spent so much of my last five years surrounded by toxicity.
I read an article recently about toxic relationships.
How many of you have experienced a relationship or friendship that takes far more than it gives?
In this article, it described a good relationship as one that holds, ‘a shared understanding of the value of the resources that are invested into the relationship’ and how each person honours their side of the bargain.
Put simply: You look after each other.
Right now, I can honestly say that I’m in the happiest place I’ve been in YEARS.
I’m surrounded by the most supportive, kind and caring people and I have to say, I’m so happy.
It feels good to say that after suffering and feeling so low for so long.
Why’s it important?
That’s simple. The happiness that these amazing people give me spills beautifully into my relationship with my little girl.
My message is simple:
You can’t pour from an empty cup, but if you fill it with poison, you’ll do yourself damage too.
Pause once in a while and be thankful for the people who had real value to your life.
That’s the good stuff.
