The Universe has spoken...

So following on from my last post, I received this in my inbox this morning from the Universe.
Ever wonder why some of those who achieve incredible success, amass fortunes, and enjoy sizzling relationships seem so unlikely? 

It's because intelligence, looks, even creativity, come in a distant second place to believing. Achievers achieve because they believed they would, and so the heavens and earth were moved. 
Also I didn't get here yesterday to tell you I was sharing some words of wisdom over at World Moms Blog about our children and social media - so why not drop by and say hi.

Cheers, Fi

There's magic in belief

Sometimes unlikely things can kick start things which have been stuck. Two things happened this week which got me refocused. Wednesday I had my monthly meeting for SARA which is the South Australia group of romance writers.

I've been attending meetings since maybe October (with a break over the Christmas period) and the talent and camaraderie in this group can be a little daunting for a new comer who's not to sure of her own writing ability.

Procrastination is a four letter word

I've been super busy today, dinner is simmering in the slow cooker, the washing has been hung out, the bathroom and toilet are sparkling clean.

I've updated middle son's resume, read several blog posts, checked out what everyone is doing on Facebook and I've even taken the time to subscribe to several new blogs.

Actually, I'm just avoiding what makes me feel uncomfortable.

6WS - Annoyed, despite all my best intentions......

I have an ugly white line on the front guard of my new car, that's on the car that has only done 6500 kilometres. Some pea brain bloody idiot doesn't know how to judge the width of their own car when parking next to me....argh.

Despite me having that new car paranoia which makes me park in far distant corners of car parks and makes me avoid squeezy little car parks. Despite always parking to the far side of a car park if no one can park on the other side, just so that I can keep moronic idiotic pea brains from scratching my new car.

Some things we take for granted

The greatest thing I think I've achieved in my life would have to be my children. My boys are amazing human beings who I love and adore and who make me so proud. Every day I am grateful for them and for my grandson.

No part of motherhood is ever perfect or without its challenges, yet Australia is known as the lucky country and is a great place to raise our children.

The old 'it's too hot excuse' - works for me

There are so many things I should and could be doing today, but with an outside temperature of 43 degrees celcius, most of those things have slipped down the list of importance to be replaced by 'stay cool' and 'don't overexert myself'.

Every ounce of guilt that sneaks in I just have to slap away.
