Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 158 #SecondChance


“Life always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow.” – Dylan Thomas

Poignant choice of quote today Spidey, as the date marks one year since my near miss accident on the M6 last year.

For those of you that remember, you’ll know about the way my car lost control and how I ended up spinning across the motorway, with cars whizzing by… For those of you that weren’t here for that part of my journey, you can read more here.

I might not have been around to write this post if it hadn’t been for my Guardian Angel looking out for me that day, and for that angel, I am truly grateful. It made me feel like I have been given a second chance at life.

But the reality is that we really do have the chance to start over, every new day. There is always the chance to change your direction each dawn.

Well, actually every new moment is a chance to change things…

I’m still making mistakes during this ‘second’ chance of mine, but I am aware that I can keep learning, and be changing every day to make myself a better person and to make life a more wonderful place.

As it is, I am sat here with my arm in a sling – my right arm too! Yes, clumsy klutz me has struck again. I fell over at the end of the school day on Friday and managed to bang my arm. A trip to A & E yesterday confirmed that I have a hairline fracture in my elbow, ouch! So it’s off to the fracture clinic for me tomorrow. Joy!

Obviously, this weekend is not the luckiest of my life, what with an accident last year, and now this injury… But I shall not let it get me down… There is still a smile upon my face, and even though it will be slow, what with typing with one hand, I may get a little more time to write, since I can’t do much else!

Has life ever handed you a second chance? Did you grab it by the horns and use it?

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

“It’s not me, it’s you.” – Anon


Something to think about here, thanks, Spidey.

Often, we find ourselves in a situation, where we blame ourselves for difficulties, and worries that surround us.

It can eat away at us, sometimes causing us to change who we are.

There are times it is easier to say ” Sorry, it’s not you, it’s me…” when that is the exact opposite of the truth.

If we are to sit back and think about the situation, it can become apparent that we are not the ones in the wrong – they are – they just can’t see it.

At times like these, it is important to hold on to yourself, keep your faith in yourself, and keep it in your mind, that it’s not you, it’s them.

Don’t blame yourself for another person’s problem. Instead be there as a quiet support. In time they will realise their mistake, especially when they realise you are not bowing down to them.

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

“When it rains, look for rainbows, when it’s dark, look for stars.” – Anon


Spectacular quote Spidey, and something I strive to share with you all every week!

It’s another form of that old adage – every cloud has a silver lining.

We are all going to be blessed with good times, and ‘cursed’ with the bad.

But in every situation, there is a positive.

It may be so hard to find, but if you look deep enough, it will shine for you, and you will realise it’s not a negative.

Find your rainbow, locate that star, and hold on to it Peeps, it’ll lead you to better days!

Happy Sunday Peeps!

“Be strong because things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never rains forever.” – Anon

Something to think on, Spidey, thank you.

This quote really hit me as a truth.

Times in our lives come, where we think we can’t carry on.

Everything is against us.

It doesn’t matter what we do, it’s always wrong.

But the saying “We can weather the storm” reflects exactly that.

There is no storm on earth that goes on forever. There is always an end in sight, and if it’s worth it, ride it.

Hold on with both hands, and accept you may be slightly bruised and battered after, but you will come out the other side, and you will be stronger too.


Which situation did you think you’d never get through, but ultimately, has given you the strength to carry on?

“If you are facing in the right direction, all you need to do is keep on walking.” – Buddha

A lovely quote Spidey, thank you.

We are all too used to these quick-fix solutions nowadays.

In cleaning, rather than setting to with your sponges and scrubbing brushes, there are electric brushes, promising cleanliness miracles in seconds, and wipes to clean just about everything.

When you want to get a response to a question, you have your mobile – a text, or message via the numerous apps available means that you are able to contact people pretty much any time.

Why wait for that bus to come, when you can just Uber yourself somewhere?

We tend to think that there will be a lightning fast solution for everything in life.

But sometimes you have to just take each day one step at a time, knowing you are going to reach your destination, but that journey may take time.

Small steps in the right direction, are better than going off-piste, trying to rush to a conclusion that may end up not being what you wanted…

Persevere with your personal journey Peeps, and enjoy your Sunday !!!!!

What step will you take, to keep life going in the right direction, Peeps?
