2017- It’s going to be a good one

Hello all my gorgeous viewers

What a way to start the year! It has been raining in my hometown for a week already. I would like to think of it as a sign that it is time to allow things to grow and become green again.

Last year was not fun for many people.  A lot seemed to have happened in the last few months and everyone ended the year off with a cross face or feeling down. It is time to all stand up and watch the world grow green grass and flowers. It is time for us all to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and start to make something of our lives.

I was cleaning out my room today and decided that I was going to throw all the negative thoughts and feelings out the window and embrace the good and warmth of positivity.

It is time to grow and better ourselves. This is going to be a year where we are all going to accomplish our dreams and make a name for ourselves.

Happy new year!

Love,

Ash

Family is everything

Hey guys, sorry it has been so long

I have not written in a really long time. I feel like my soul does not know what has hit it because it has been so long. So we have got a lot to talk about today…

College is very hard at the moment. I have 6 weeks left of my first year. How scary is that!!!! To think that I am so close to the end of my first year, it is just ridiculous and I am not sure how I feel about it. It feels like I have just started. I cannot be out of school for nearly a year already! It is just not right. One step closer to my goal though so overall it is a good thing.

Work is fun but I am a bit bored of it now. I need the money for the Pro Beauty expo so that is keeping me motivated and I need to fix up my car and everything but my heart is more set on photography not so much giving people tenpin balls and sorting out game machines. From next year I will be working in a spa which is where I belong so I will just ride this wave out and gain experience. I have learnt how to deal with all different types of people which is good for me because I am learning how to deal with them. The longer I ride this wave out, the more experience with people I will get and the better I will do in a salon.

My social life is not like it used to be. I just don’t seem to have the time like I used to have BUT having said that, I am still there for people when they call me. At the moment all I want to do is come home and snuggle and watch a movie and just chill. How old do I sound now?? but that is the truth.

I miss my lil sis like crazy at the moment. Last week I hurt my shoulder badly and was not able to go to dancing. I count on dancing to see her and I was not able to do that. I sat in my room all miff and teary the whole night.

Now comes my life lesson to all of you… FAMILY IS EVERYTHING! I have not got the closest family. Truth of the matter is, if I had to see one of my cousins in the street, I would not have a clue who the hell it is. How sad is that!? My oupie is sick at the moment but he is strong and he is getting better but his one wish is to have all of us together once in a blue moon. Let me paint a picture for you guys… We have not been under one roof in about 7 years! Last time we were was when my Oumie got hurt and robbed. It is very sad. I used to blame myself up until a year ago. I always thought that my mom and her brothers did not speak because of me. I had a car accident in 2003 and when my uncles did not come and see if I was ok, I thought that they were all cross at me. We started to drift as a family around that time and I always thought it was because of me. I know now that it wasn’t and I was probably stupid for thinking that but us kids have weird ways of dealing with things.

Back to the issue at hand. Family life these days are not what they used to be and that is 110% our fault! We don’t seem to understand the value of family now days because we too busy worrying about other things. Take it from someone who cherishes people before money and materialistic things, we need a family so that we can grow as a person. Now your family is not only who we share the same DNA with. Family are people who are there for you when you need the. They are there to listen to you when you need to vent to someone. Family is made up of people you love and who love you back. We need that in our lives in order to stay afloat.

So learn from my family mistakes. Don’t get to the point where you have no idea who is who. All it takes is a cup of coffee once a month with your family to remind you of who you are! and where you have come from. Surely that is not a lot to ask for and believe in me, it means a lot to people.

At the end of the day, people come and go in life but your family… your family is forever! You share DNA, you share a history, you share the love of parents.
