Mum + Dad.

My Parents are honestly the freaking best! I moved out of home about 8 months ago now in to the house that I purchased and my parents helped me out in every way possible. I wrote them this poem to thank them, however I always got tears in my eyes or got upset when I thought about giving it to them. They still haven’t read it – but I’m hoping one day soon, I will be able to let them read it so they know how thankful I am for the both of them.

From the day I made the decision, you were nothing but proud
Maybe because you were excited for me to leave, as I am far too loud
I know that’s not the case though, you were just so happy for me
But to get to where I am today, didn’t come easily

Without your love, help and support
I wouldn’t own a house, I’d be all out of sort
I cannot thank you both enough
Without you, life sure would have been tough

But now as I take the next step in life
I know that when I leave my towel on the floor, I will not get in strife
Thank you for always cleaning, washing and shopping
Now that it’s my turn to grow up, and do my own thing
I thank you for teaching me everything

I could have not done the move without both of you
and doing it alone, just would have been blue
Thank you for washing and packing everything up
If we did it at mine, means I’d have to clean up

I will miss you more than you think
But you’re always welcome for a drink
I can’t wait for you to come round
Just please don’t judge my dirty ground

I can’t put in to words how much you both mean to me
And how much living with you gave me so much glee
So thank you again for everything you did
But my new house is ready, there goes your last kid

As I write this poem with tears in my eyes
There are so many things that I start to realise
You are truly the best parents a girl could ask for
I can’t believe that I will no longer live there anymore
Who will rub on Lavender, when my head is sore?

I love you Mum and Dad,
You are everything to me
Even though Fischer Road no longer has three
There will always be the love between the two of you and me!

Love yourself.

There are so many of us that just don’t want to be alone, that are always wanting someone by their side or desperately searching. You aren’t alone. Just because you don’t have a special someone in your life, doesn’t mean that you are not loved. Your Family, friends, colleagues, heck even strangers- they spread just as much love and light as a partner could.

I hate seeing people jump from one relationship to another so quickly. I think sometimes the fact of not having someone there scares people, but it shouldn’t. If anything, it should help you grow.

Not being in a relationship, I think is healthy for you. You learn to love yourself and take care of yourself without relying on someone to do it for you or to keep you grounded. This is only the way I look at, a lot of people would completely disagree. I just think that if you can learn to enjoy life and be full of happiness by yourself, you don’t have to rely on someone to do that for you and that’s the best way to be.

I have never been happier and I haven’t dated for a few years now. But in that time frame of not dating, I have truly found myself. I have found new passions that I never knew I loved, I made new friends and re-connected with some old ones. I realised how simple things in life can be the best. Things like going to the markets every Saturday, reading a book with a cup of tea on my back patio or buying myself fresh flowers each week. Things that everyone want other people to do for or with them, but are just as rewarding on your own. Cherish the small things, make them count. That’s what will make you happy.

I grew as a person, and I did it alone. You can too. Don’t be in a toxic relationship or situation and be unhappy, get out, have the time of your life and rediscover yourself – it will be one of the best things you do for yourself! I am not at all saying relationships are bad, they’re great. But if you are unhappy in yours, do the small things I’ve just written above and then you will know exactly when you’re ready for love again.

Life is one big adventure. Enjoy it. Always.

Until next time, T xo
