#LivingArrows – Belly Dancing & Big Smiles 25/53 (2018)

Gosh, it’s so lovely to finally get back into the swing of blogging again. I’ve still got a fair amount of posts, reviews and other things to catch up with but there’s no rush. I’m no longer putting any pressure on myself to do anything, I plan to take life one step at a time and to enjoy the here and the now as much as I possibly can.

Belly Dancing

Our little lady is such a diva, she’s recently started dance lessons at the local dance school and already we’ve collected her a leotard, ballet shoes and as of tomorrow evening we should be able to complete her collection with a brand, spanking new pair of tap shoes all ready for her next lesson.

This past weekend, our friends Viv and Derick came back from their holiday in Turkey. They very kindly brought back a beautiful belly dancing outfit complete with a headband for our gorgeous girl E, that and a fantastic football kit for our big boy J. As you can imagine E couldn’t wait to give us a demo in her dress, she spent the majority of Saturday shaking her stuff around the sitting room, bless!

Big Smiles

J isn’t one to crack a smile for the camera, he’s far to snap shy for posing for a picture. It can take forever and a day to get a decent shot out our little man, for this reason I often snap shots whilst he is unaware, just as he was when I took this picture.

J has an incredible sense of humour, he is quite literally the funniest little man I have ever met – he never fails to make me laugh even at the most inappropriate moments which are often the funniest in his eyes. I love to see our little man laugh, to see him smile and to know that he is happy.

As you can probably tell, my kids mean the World to me and I’d do anything for them. My biggest hope for them is that they will be happy; they needn’t have high-flying jobs, big houses, posh cars or any of that to impress me.

My kids needn’t pressure themselves with the worries of the World to prove or to win any points, they needn’t worry themselves for a moment as to what I may think of what they chose to do with their career, their love lives or anything else.

I am already incredibly proud of what my children have become and am certain that their futures will be bright. Just a simple smile from them will be enough for me as their happiness is far more important than any status or material goods.

You can’t take money nor work with you, happiness though – that’ll live on forever.

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
