That sense of frustration

I had one of those morning the other day.

A morning when things unfolded inconveniently meaning the
late departure for my destination 90 minutes away.

Some of what unfolded sat squarely in my lap and some in the
lap of others. I say that with knowledge that blame rarely improves one’s mood.

However, the day started with a level of frustration that
served little purpose other than increasing my heartrate.

Lets break some rules

I was raised in a household where rules were a plenty.

There were many ways to do the wrong thing, often without
knowing that this was a possibility in the first instance, meaning stepping out
of line was a common situation.

And the wrath was swift and unforgiving.

Be still, be kind and be silent

I remember going to a piano concern many years ago.

The pianist flicked his long coat tails behind him as he sat
down on the piano stool and paused.

He paused for what seemed like eternity as he gathered
himself for the task in front of him

Doing what he needed to do mentally and physically to bring
the music forth.

To let his fingers dance across the keys and produce
something of beauty. Something for us all to lose ourselves in.

The chapters of our lives

When I am reading a book, I have been known to flick ahead
to see how long a chapter is before I begin my reading of that particular
chapter.

It gives me a sense of how much time and concentration is
involved before I venture in. If I am really desperate, I have also been known
to search for clues amongst the words on the pages ahead to hint at what will
unfold.

Feeding our wants

I shouldn’t go into stationery stores.

I love stationery, and I think a lot of us do.

There is something about the colour and the variety, that means I buy things I don’t need.

At least they are useful things; however, I don’t need them.

Ageing strong

I had an excellent session with my business coach last week.

I had lost my way a little. The truth is I had lost my way a lot and needed the guiding hand of someone who would ask the right questions and challenge me.

I needed to rethink what I was about so I could be clear on everything I did to help you, the people who I want to help.

And now I am excited and reinvigorated about my purpose.

It is my wish to inspire and educate you to see that ageing is OK.

 Ageing Is OK.
