Patriotism

Hi friends
Patriotism

I wasn’t brought up to be patriotic, the word meaning a pride and love of one’s homeland, in fact my dad was very anti royalty and when he was alive I too adopted this belief that they are a waste of money, but not any more.
In the last 6-7 years I’ve developed a sense of patriotism, firstly because it feels so damn good to be proud of my country here in Great Britain and secondly because we do have a lot to be proud of.
People say we are soft we let too many foreigners in who abuse our system which I’m sure in some cases is true, but my view that I’ve decided to adopt is, there is no lack that we are generous and when you know this the universe will deliver more abundance.
How many countries in the world have a free (albeit we pay through taxes) health service, which when you think about it is absolutely phenomenal considering the huge load that’s put on the NHS, but we do cope and although there is some waiting around I think it’s incredible as most countries would not pick you up off the street without being paid. Yes I’m proud of our National Health Service who I have worked for most of my adult life.
Our country is abundant in history that’s admired the world over. When I went to Australia and New Zealand there was always some connection with Great Britain. The sons of my friend Georgie who are musicians can’t wait to come to our land of plenty.
When I returned from my trip whilst at work I said “New Zealand is the most beautiful country in the world” my colleague replied “no Great Britain is” I had to agree. With our quaint English villages, with pastures every shade of green, Snowdonia, The Peak District, The Highlands of Scotland, The Yorkshire Moors, our historic buildings and so much more.
When we landed at Luton airport from my recent trip to Bulgaria I shouted out “Welcome to the best country in the world” and Mia and I turned round and confirmed this to a couple of young Bulgarian men sitting behind us who were going to start working in London.
Yes I am proud and love our Land of Abundance, where we are welcoming, generous and kind hearted and when you know what we know about the laws of the universe this can only get better, better and better.
Have a fab day
Lots of love as always

One thought on “Patriotism

  1. So true…you do live in one of the best countries in the world, with Canada on the list os the best as well (my home). I truly love visiting Great Britain and it is one of the few places I have visited more than once. I love the history, the landscape, the architecture, the people and of course “I love your Pubs”. I could go on but you hit the head on the nail….one of the best countries in the world.
