"Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher."

After living in Birmingham for most of my life and never really feeling 100% comfortable, the move to Shropshire changed everything for me. It's true what they say about being surrounded by negative people that don't make you happy, it really does have a huge impact on the way you develop over time and it was something I had battled with for many years. Meeting Mrs M opened up my world to a completely new way of thinking. Life was instantly filled with happiness, I found that I had more confidence than I had ever had before and I have been able to achieve so much more than the 29 years prior to meeting her.

Love can do that to a person and it is something I think about pretty much every day. Although the negatives have helped me learn and become a better person, I hope the boys don't have to go through as much heartache as I have over the years. I'm never going to be able to stop these things from happening in their lives but I hope that the happy, loving and safe family life that Mrs M and I have built for them with be all the foundations they need to learn from. 

This was initially going to be a post about a photograph I took of Opeie while we were out rambling but instead became a 'what I was thinking about' while rambling with Opeie. Life is great and I've said it so many times on the blog, this boy is well and truly smitten!
