It is 4.45am and I have decided to arise earlier on a regular basis in a
desperate bid to improve my efficiency ratio on 'school' days and have some peaceful 'thinking' time before 3 whirlwinds of activity sabotage the calm. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do n'est-ce pas?
.All is dark and chilly, and the only sound is the gentle takakakakakakakakak of the keyboard, if you don't count the occasional curse whispered
There's rather a lot going on in the dark around here in fact and one of the reasons I've alighted so early is to gather my thoughts and shed a little light on areas I'm personally unclear about. I guess you could say I'm in the process of redefining my core values and working out a clearer mission statement for my life. Nothing like a good cuppa and a blog post to help me on my way… ;-)
When I feel like I've lost my footing in the great adventure race of life. I know it's time to stop, reorient my compass and narrow the options for effectively getting to the next point.
Sort of like the run I went on last night in the forest. In the beginning it was all a bit
scary hazy and vague and I had to pick my way forward slowly, placing each step carefully but firmly. After a while the momentum picked up naturally and, even though nothing was bright as daylight, I could clearly identify the white stones of the right track shining through the darkness. By the time I got back, the dark and I had become familiar friends and the path felt more like a Yellow Brick Road.
This is my own personal mantra of the moment with which I'm completely enjoying brainwashing myself:
"My body is a mountain"
(Note to self: gotta stop the chocolate ;-)
"Never give in!"
Thanks for the emails and comments I've had for the last couple of posts. It's enriching getting some wider points of view on those existential situations we all go through in life :)
Have a great week all.
Don't lose your focus :)
