Have you ever met someone who gave you a tingle? Or a little more energy? Perhaps they gave you a boost or a positive nature that you decided to follow.
Thankfully, I have many positive people in my life but today, an amazing and positive person came to visit me and her name is Mia.
Mia is amazing. She is a woman that many of us would love to be. She is absolutely passionate about her cause being her gorgeous special needs daughter Juno. She is passionate about her amazing and handsome son Rourke (allergy related illness). She is passionate about her ‘boob obsessed’ baby Olive.
Nothing is too much for Mia to delve into and explore, find explanations/reason, fight the government, schooling, expectations and find out how, why, when and hows of everything.
When Mia speaks, you listen. She is passionate about diet, energy, gratitude, children’s needs, government, understanding, shutting up v’s speaking out and looking amazing.
I know Mia doesn’t do much to herself but she is one of those amazing women that just looks incredible to me and not just because she has two boobs and hair.
It is simply because of her energy.
Mia is such an amazing woman who radiates energy and gratitude. How lovely are these flowers in a glass jar from the pantry??!
Like me, Mia is not keen on the ‘oh poor me’ syndrome that seems to be rampant through South Australia, or even, the world. We are more focused on the positiveness and gratitude of life. I LOVE THIS!
My amazing cousin Tamara and I follow this gratitude thing as often as possible where we email each other and in this email, we include three things we are thankful or grateful for each day. Sounds easy hey? Try it.
I’ll give you todays’ three things I am grateful for..
- An amazing and energized visit from Mia
- My gorgeous dogs who give me love each and every day
- Wonderful neighbours who I can chat too any time
I challenge each person who reads this today to write or email three things they are thankful or grateful for each day for a few years. The days you struggle to find three things are the days when you realise that this is an important thing to do each and every day.
Back to my visit from Mia.
She really is a pocket rocket. This woman can speak and you just hold onto every word she says.
I explained to Mia that I was giving up alcohol in the new year because, unfortunately, it has become a bit of a crutch for me. Alcohol has made things better when things were not so great.
Mia is against sugar and I could see that she understood but also, she knew why the weight had built onto my body. Sugar.
Without much or a conversation about it, I was ready to give it up simply because Mia is an Energizer Bunny, I want to be like her!! She has energy and plans and ideas and excitement about life, diet and lifestyle.
Give that to me!!!
With Mias visit, I had a laugh or three, many ideas and thoughts, jealousy and pride and energy! I am going to be a ‘Mia’.
Why is Mia so important? Well, to you she may not be. But to me she is amazing.
Mia is a young and gorgeous and amazing and healthy woman.
Mia has three children under 5 (maybe 6) and one is a special needs child and one has serious allergies and one, Olive, is a Mama’s baby.
Mia has fought the government disability schemes, has fought with local government members, has helped many many families with children of special needs, has encouraged fund raising for hospitals and … little old me… and gives back to society.
Mia should be wearing a tiara to bed each night but instead, she wears a weary and tired body, the stresses of having children who need to be within ten kilometers of a local hospital, an alarm that goes off to give another child her medication, fights for awareness and acceptance to be often shut down, sometimes from people too close to her, fights back tears and words when tears and words are needed….. she wakes every day to start again.
Here is gorgeous Mia and Juno
This woman came to see me today and brightened my entire day with her smile and her flowers.
If you ever wish to complain about your life, first, look at your ‘gratitude’ and think again.
- Do you have a roof over your head?
- Do you have people who love you?
- Is there money in your account? Maybe not today but tomorrow?
- Is there a little one loving you right now?
- Can you feed yourself? Or others that are in your house?
These are things you should be grateful for.
Mia, you are amazing and I love you. I can’t wait to visit you or for you to visit me again.
My new year decision of giving up alcohol, sugar and reverting to a healthier lifestyle was perked up by your visit. I was even excited by this from the energy you bought to my home.
I know I can do this.
Without you, I am sure I could have done it but with your visit, I am EXCITED to do it.
Keep smiling that amazing smile Mia and thank you again for your inspiring visit to me.
Feel free to visit and follow that gorgeous Juno’s journey through facebook. Mia is an absolute gem when it comes to writing. She does use these new world ’emoticoms thingies’ but they work (and are very funny sometimes). I am feeling so much more in-tune with these little pictures hehe
Thank you Mia for popping up to my place and can’t wait to be energised by you again. xx
You Rock…. xxx
