Day 13

Make a written plan to increase chances of success

It’s day 13 and I realise that I have no precise written plan regarding how I am going to have a home of my own by the end of the 500 days.

I have a mental one of course – work hard and save hard and be alert for opportunities.

But without a written plan the scheme is doomed to failure.

So tomorrow, after I go walking in the forest, I shall make one. And if the internet is available I shall share a rough draft with you in the hope that it might be helpful.

Internet has been very patchy here ~ I’m in Mapleton, Sunshine Coast, for a couple of nights ~ so no guarantees.

Meantime, travel and lack of sleep have caught up so I am reluctantly allowing myself to rest ❤︎

Day 1

500 days

How did this 500 day personal challenge come about? Blame Gary Vaynerchuck for one, though he’s not the only catalyst that inspired me to launch this challenge … there have been many others who inspired me to act over the years. Ultimately though, in time, the biggest inspirer of action has to be oneself, and […]

Signs of Renewal

All things renew themselves

Before I left Maleny, which I did from necessity rather than choice, I took a cutting of a stunning Jasmine that I used to pass every day on my walks in the wilderness. Never having had any luck with jasmine cuttings before I expected it to die like the rest of them. But this little […]

What would happen if we were gentle with ourselves in our desire to be creative?

Cheryl Strayed with Marie Forleo

If you have ever beaten yourself up cos you think you’re not a real “creative” please take a look at this video. We need to be gentle with ourselves and stop feeling ashamed that we’re not living up to external expectations. Amen.
