Own Your Days

"This is your life. Be bold with it.
Live it with energy and purpose in the direction that excites you.
Listen to your heart, look for your dreams: they are God-inspired"
- Bear Grylls, A Survival Guide for Life

Welcome to Own Your Days

Hello and welcome to our family blog.  We’re not sure how you found us, but we’re glad you did and we hope you find some interest or inspiration in these pages.

“You have to own your days and live them, each one of them, every one of them, or else the years go by and none of them belong to you.”

– Herb Gardner, American playwright and screenwriter

Did you ever have one of those days (or even weeks) when you looked back on it and couldn’t remember what on earth you had done with your time?  When your days were filled with routine jobs and activities and you didn’t even notice them passing?  Maybe there were a few highlights – a great holiday, nights out with friends or fabulous weekends doing something fun together as a family, but mostly life was filled with school, work and other obligations.

That was us.  Life was just ‘happening’, without us feeling like we had any choice in how we spent it.  So, we started to search for an alternative – simpler living, being more present in the moment, spending more quality time with our children…..and a bit of adventure!  We sold our house and set off to travel around Europe in our caravan for a year. And we hope that our days will truly belong to us.
