I wasn’t sure whether to approach this from a sentimental point of view, materialistic or humorous, so I thought I’d write about all 3.
Sentimental – it’s obvious, of course it is, but I cannot live without my family. My husband and my children are everything. I never thought that I could love anyone this much, at least outside of the family that I was lucky enough to be born into. But my husband truly is my best friend, and I get overwhelmed thinking about the tribe we are creating together.
Pregnancy emotions or not, I get all teary and happy.
Apart from our immediate tribe, we absolutely couldn’t live without our families, in particular parents. From financial to emotional support and everything in between, we are beyond lucky and particularly blessed to have the back up that we do.
I hope one day we can repay them, but with all the support we receive, that could never happen! Hopefully they know just how much we truly appreciate everything that they do for us. (Parents, if you’re reading…SERIOUSLY, YOU ARE THE GREATEST!)
Materialistic – I should probably be ashamed at how much I rely on my phone. And there are many times when I think I need one of those new timer locked boxes that stops you reaching for your phone. The fact that those boxes even exist is probably a sign that we all need to give them up a little. But these days’ phones do so much I would actually struggle day to day without it.
Of course I could physically live without it, but I certainly wouldn’t be so organised. And I am NOT organised, so imagine just how bad I could be!?
At almost any time I can access support groups, write a blog post, capture a memory, get medical advice (always take Dr Google with a pinch of salt) or speak to a friend. I may not literally die without my phone, but it certainly can be a life line.
Humorous – air! None of us could live without it ;) ok so I’m not that funny
