Treat Yo Self Part IV

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.

Countdown to 2018 – Gratitude Doodles – #1 Grad to Pro

Less than 50 days.

2018.

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!

We work.

We celebrate.

We have a lot of fun.

We treat ourselves!

“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.

Life is tough.

Life is also short.

I believe in mini-celebrations of success.

Even micro ones.

Nano ones.

Conundrum

We listen to seek understanding.

Or at least we try to.

Yet it is not often easy.

But definitely worth it.

Clueless

There are times when I am just walking down the street, minding my own business when suddenly I am struck by cluelessness.

As if everyone in the world knows what they are doing and why, and I am the only soul here who is entirely clueless.

Then I look around and think again.

Perhaps everyone else is as clueless as I am. And it’s OK.

No need to panic.

A Thousand Oceans

Your eyes carry the weight of a thousand oceans

and the echo of the universe

I promise you…

That you will be happy again.

~ My Persian Poet ~

I have written these words down where I can see them everyday.

First World Problem

Hotel rooms.

The knobs and buttons for all the various lighting fixtures in hotel rooms will forever remain a mystery to me.

Trying to switch them all off simultaneously so that I can sleep in complete darkness is always a challenge.

Me and my first world problems.

Books

I went to the bookstore again today.

Came home with three books.

My purpose there was not just to purchase books.

I also went to have a coffee today.

Drank a lovely little cup of coffee.

My purpose there was not just to drink coffee.

I went and did a bunch of things today.

Accomplished several tasks and errands.

But my purpose was not to complete tasks and run errands.
