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 ❤︎

500 days

Ultimately though, in time, the biggest inspirer of action has to be oneself, and […]

About Seona

  Hi, I’m Seona MacDonald. For my 55th (2016) birthday I gave myself the long overdue gift of drawing a line in the sand with respect to my personal values, standards, boundaries and expectations. Translated: I’m caring for myself before others. Radical? Maybe, but I’m hanging in there because the result is an empowering surge in self-respect, personal power, […]

And So ….

July passes into the night

Definitely a bit of a train track theme going on in my work and life at the moment. which gives pause to wonder … what does it mean? I know the answer. I’m resetting the tracks. Destination clear ahead, express route. And ain’t no fucker gonna derail me this time, mama.

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.
