She asked me to write this.She was just joking. ‘Don’t’
Let me give you a little bit of inside info. My little sister, lets call her Sarah for now. Well, Sarah is regrettably a loser. You heard me, a loser. Her life is one somersault after another. She has her ideas, and her plans. Then she tried to implement them, every week she has new ideas and new hopes to succeed at the most simplest of things. For example, turning up to her scheduled lessons at college which have the been the same time for the past two semesters. Her plans are going well, her aims are very high.
But recently I think she may have turned over a new leaf. Perhaps a new chapter in the book of Sarah’s life. She is perhaps a reformed character. She is socialising with people that actually care about themselves and her. She is getting up and doing things, she is looking forward in her life. Some people get stuck in a rut, and often do not realise that they are in it until they have wasted far too much of their life.
Life is not a dress rehearsal. We are the makers of our own path, the authors of our own book. If things go wrong in your life, then instead of focusing on the negative and being bogged down by things that are outside of your control focus on what you can control or influence and the positives. As they say, every cloud has a silver lining.
And my little sister has hers. She is remarkable. After getting out a a long-term relationship and moping around, she has bounced right back. After having her hours cut at work she has implemented a new budgeting system – if she cannot afford it then she probably should not be buying it. (Emphasis on probably)
And most importantly she has decided not to listen to me! Or to endorse this blog post. She has been a little trouper in my life, and without her I would be quite sad. Despite how crazy I sometimes think she is (and she might think I am) my life would not be the same without her in it. She is amazing simply because she is her. She has an amazing ability to make me and others laugh. This is a gift that should never be underestimated, but perhaps is. If people could pay for happiness then they would, and often they try to. But she is an endless source of joy for all around her, when she chooses and it costs her nothing, just time.
It is in fact her birthday in a few days time, in exactly a week in fact. And I know a secret about that, that she does not know. Well, I simply cannot wait to celebrate her birth, because that was a very special day indeed because it was her first day in this big scary world. But we are together in this world. And hopefully will be for a long time to come.
