C in the A to Z bloggers challenge


We go through life making connections with others. Sometimes it’s small connections and sometimes big connections.

Sometimes the connection fades, or things change in us, or the person that we were connected to, which causes the connection to break so badly that we are never able to fix it, and sometimes if we are lucky the connection grows and grows, filling our hearts and souls, and remaining eternally etched there.

In life we connected with people everyday, a connection can be made in the simplest ways; a smile from a stranger is a connection, regardless of whether we see that person again or not.

Or likewise a shared interest with a friend is a connection.

I believe that connections often happen without us even realising that it has, we read something and it speaks to our own heart, gives us hope if things are less than perfect for us at that time, and helps to lift us up.

The best connections for me are the ones that sneak up on me, even though they have been there all along.

Sitting thinking about connections I realised how many connections there have been in my life, and how all of these connections themselves have connected together in order to make me who I am.

So today I am celebrating connections, the good the bad, and the ugly.

And all they have done, to make me the person that I am today.

YAY!!! Connections lol.

Love and hugs Joss.

Ps. here are some great C words.

C = calm

I love a calm and peaceful house, because it’s such a rare occurrence in my own.

C = cute.

I am in love with all things cute

C = cheerful

It is better to be cheerful than sad, because no matter how bad things get, sadness will never make things easier.

C = considerate

I try to be considerate to others

C = creative

I love to be creative, it helps me grow, learn and live.
