It was my 36th birthday a few days back and my wonderful, caring and understanding girlfriend got me my very own special Māori greenstone. This greenstone represents Strength and Courage, something I need to remind myself often that I have.
For it hasn’t been a smooth journey these 36 years. I have made some great achievements, such as:
- Having two wonderful children
- Getting my degree in teaching
- Emigrating to New Zealand
- Working for the Emergency Services
- Meeting my current partner, she is amazing.
I mean there is probably more, I just can’t remember them.
Now it’s time for the magic of the greenstone to help me gain mental equilibrium.
