Just a little something to think about…
I heard someone say that some sportsperson or other ‘made history’ this week.
I can’t remember who it was or what they did.
But they, apparently, ‘made history’.
As a general rule, people use the term ‘making history’ when people do something for the first time.
But now I have a 2 year old daughter, I think about this saying quite differently.
As I get older I think quite deeply about what I am doing each day, and how I can make Izobel proud. Even though all she wants from me at the moment is cereal (the dinosaur one, not the monkey one), milk and a cuddle.
I can see that every decision I make today and everything that I do, no matter how big, small, significant or insignificant is – quite literally – making history. Because it’s my history and Izobel’s history. She will know about it one day.
And that’s quite a responsibility.
So tomorrow, and today as it goes, if you’re feeling tired or overwhelmed or confused or bothered by things – that’s OK.
You’re meant to feel all of those things if you’re really trying.
After all – you’re making history.
