I am insouciant.
Why settle for happy when you can be insouciant?
Sometimes you have conversations which do not seem all that significant in that moment.
Afterwards, you take a moment to reflect upon what had been said, and not said.
And then a revelation smacks you right in the face.
Goes to show that communication takes a range of skills.
These skills include actually paying attention, and reflection afterwards.
It’s St. Valentine’s Day.
And I wish everyone could find, have, enjoy and appreciate redamancy.
A word that ought to be brought back to use in the English language.
Stoic Lesson from Marcus Aurelius.
Things, titles, praise, adulation…
They come and they go.
Enjoy the moment.
And be ready to let go at any time.
I have been practising the Four Agreements since the start of this year.
And I have not been very successful at all.
Not even with the First Agreement: Be Impeccable with Your Word.
It is much harder than I imagined.
The first doodle of 2018 is inspired by Don Miguel Ruiz’s book, The Four Agreements.
And of course, the greatest poet philosopher, Khalil Gibran.
And, my failures and mistakes.
November has been a very very busy month for me.
Lots of days/ nights away from home.
And my little dog has been well looked after by my dear friends while I am away.
Today I treated myself with a day spent with my Pepper.
Less than 50 days.
Before make resolutions and celebrate the new year, let’s make a gratitude list of 2017.
Top of my list.
My daughter will finish university this year and step into a new phase of her life.
I am thankful that her hard work has been rewarded.
That she is a down to earth young woman.
That she has found new passions and overcome challenges in this past year.
That she has emerged a champion and a young Wonder Woman.
I drew a doodle of how I imagine her as a YO-PRO!
“Students are the hardest working people on this planet.” – according to students.
They deserve every mini celebration!
This post features my daughter Nadia who is *working hard* on her university final exams.
With a special appearance from Wellington the Bear, a trusty long time companion.
