Lapland The Trip of a Lifetime

We are home from my big birthday holiday! I’m still overwhelmed and amazed by the experience.

We went on a sleigh ride with reindeer, and husky pulled sledding, we visited an Ice Village and searched for the Northern Lights. I’ve had the most amazing time, it’s something that I will never forget.

I am totally in love with Finland and their way of life seems fabulous to me. They are so relaxed and good natured.

This holiday has made me realise that I have to stop wasting time and start living my best life. I’m going to the things that I want to do and make good memories.

I want to live, really live. 😄

None of us knows if there will be another tomorrow? I am making positive changes in my mind and attitude already and it feels good. I want to lead a healthier lifestyle, for a start…

It’s time to put the past where it belongs and move on without shame or fear… I want my daughters to be proud of me one day, I want to make myself proud.

I’ve often said How blessed I am and how grateful, and I truly am, but I’m aware that sometimes my attitude and behaviours didn’t really reflect this gratitude. I’m so happy to be a few weeks away from the Big 4-0, if I’m honest, I didn’t think I would get here!

The time for change and action is now. I have no time to waste. Perhaps life really does begin at forty?
