Life Lessons | Family

I haven't done one of these posts in a long time, but I thought I would do a quick post about the importance of family because we can sometimes "forget", take family for granted or let whatever it may be get in the way. Every family goes through it's up and downs, that's how life goes. No family is perfect, and we sometimes wish certain members of our families were not part of it, trust me I know all about that. And yes, there are also those who have done unforgivable things, which I can totally understand and more power to you for getting rid of anything negative in your life. However...

One thing I cannot stand is people who take family for granted. I mean, don't get me wrong we all complain about how annoying mums, dads and siblings may be but that's different...

I know all of this may sound a bit random, and I may be stating the obvious here, but in exactly 47 days I am going back to South Africa to see my family after two years, and it will be the first time in five years that I will get the chance to spend Christmas with them. And it wasn't up until my manager wasn't feeling the idea of me going away, during one of the busiest periods in retail that it dawned on me how much I love and miss my family back home. I guess what i'm trying to get at, is that some of you don't realise what you have. Use the time you have with your loved ones wisely. Cherish those moments and most importantly make amends, especially over little things before it's too late, because some people like me who are away from their families would love nothing more than to see their loved ones at the click of a finger.

Family is everything.
