A Work In Progress

It has been a long time since I published a blog post. How do I feel about that? Not great: ‘Oughts’, ‘shoulds’ and other demanding words come to mind when I think of the long gap.

I gaze at this picture I have on my wall at home and think again. I am on a journey, I am being ‘me’ as I travel.

How many of us feel ‘okay’ about ourselves, the way we are and our achievements? How many berate themselves for what they are not or have not done? Can’t we see what a marvelous work of creation we are and how much we do achieve, sometimes against tough odds?

“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.” Arthur Ashe

Enjoy being you and enjoy your journey.

“Don’t ask your…

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

― Harold Whitman

I found this quote in an old Filofax.  Then found a quote that says “getting excited about an idea is not much of a plan”.  Mm

yup, I am good at excited but need a more focussed thinker to help me with my plan. So it’s TEAMWORK folks!
