This poem is on my bathroom wall.
Mum bought this poem for me when I was 18, and was about to head off to Grimsby, YES Grimsby. I was heading off to college. 22 years later, I still see this poem everyday. I may not read it daily, but I see it daily. Mum wrote a little message on the back of it too. Love her so much xx
In a sense I did quit, well I quit this episode of my life. I only lasted 3 weeks or so in Grimsby, but I mean come on, who can blame me. However it is not a regret. It put me onto the path that I still follow today. I did go to college and I did get the qualification I was aiming for, so for all I quit, I didn’t really, I took a detour! Nowadays, before making the big decisions I think back to this poem, to what Mum would say or think, and I think twice before jumping in feet first. Guess that’s an age thing too.
