Fail to Prepare/Prepare to Fail, etc….

mindfullness, wellbeing

A bit of a weird concept – if you don’t plan, it will go wrong (not all the time, random and chance are key in opportunity too).  ‘Prepare to Fail’ – well isn’t this a big kick in the shins kind of phrasing?! Pah.  Learning to go: ‘Ok, I’m knackered, I need to pause, stand back and have a think about stuff’, is surely more motivating and realistic, not to mention better for your wellbeing.  It’s hard to do though, you have to get there, to that stage of going: ‘alright, I get it, I need to reroute’. 


Sometimes getting back to your old self is a nice way to see where you want to go, who you want and need to be and how you need to live.

Wednesday Wake-Up vs. Turn Around Tuesday

art and craft, mindfullness, wellbeing

Started a Macrame plant holder this eve, well – morphed my mustard wool crochet thingy wingy, into a shape, to hopefully house a small (succulant?) plant.  There is inspiration everywhere, especially colours to use, but I’m not always/often to seeing it, the ‘inspiration’.

I’ve randomly been awake and up since 5am-ish this morning and very active with it – needless to say, at near 1am – I’m shattered…………  Over and out.
