Putting things in perspective

I like to think of myself as creative – I love words, I love colour, I love design. Creating and designing things are when I’m at my happiest.

A friend sent me a link today for an essay about perspective and one sentence the writer wrote really grabbed me; 

The trick to being truly creative, I’ve always maintained, is to be completely unselfconscious and resist the urge to self-censor. To not-give-a-shit what anybody thinks?

6WS - Dancing on stars, swinging on clouds

I was one of those kids who always had my nose in a book and not much has changed now that I'm an adult. The genres have expanded but I still love the magical, make believe worlds.

Enid Blyton was one of my favourites and I adored The Faraway Tree and yes now I'm really showing my age.

Some weeks you're happy to see the end of...

Last week was one of those weeks... with the repercussions of decisions I made that some people still fail to fully understand the reasons for.

We're slowly getting there, however the weekend was my absolute payback for the week from hell.

I spent two days stuck in a holiday shack on the Yorke Peninsula with plenty of chick flick DVD's, my Kindle loaded with books and my pens and notebooks.

I believe in me...

I'm good at making decisions; I'm forthright and decisive and just like to get things done. It's when it's personal and other people believe they know what's best for me that things get a little wonky in the decision making department.

I've finally made the decision and my feeling of relief and weightlessness is worth it. For better or worse, I will live with the outcome. This blog was so-named based on how I was raised, with the belief that makes me hang on to my dreams and the power we each have to make amazing things happen.

Sometimes, words fail me...

I work in the communications field, yet when it comes to talking about personal things which frustrate me or annoy me then I have no words to explain how I feel because my ability to communicate vanishes. 

Have you ever tried to get your message across when you're angry and then said words you never meant to say?

Go away dirtbag

Listen up, little man in Albacrete, Spain - stop trying to access my account and bugger off.

I was driving home from work tonight and I get this text message "Google Account - suspicious log in detected" - the messages are in my emails, my phone text messages and on my blog.

My heart stopped, because I haven't backed anything up for awhile.

Change is in the wind...I can feel it coming

Thomas Edison said "If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves."

So I'm ready to be astounded. It's time to run, to explore and to discover bigger and better things - to prove to myself that I am capable of amazing things. No more putting up with less than I am worth, and I have been for too long.
