Today’s #BrilliantThing Day 1 of 21

So here’s my next challenge- make a note of all the brilliant things that happen to me in a day. Why? So I can be grateful even for the little things that I take for granted.

Thanks to Vanessa Shaw and Neil Pasricha for the inspiration.

So here’s my list in a kind of chronological order.

Didn’t wake up till 8am

First dat in my 5 minute journal

Pancakes with the Things at school 

Bought a load of cheap books for me and the things for $10 at the school second hand book sale.

Got 2 pairs of boots for Thing 1 for $30 for Thing 1

Healthy salad at Panera

Meditated. Twice.

Hit my 10,000 steps.

#LunchBoxNotes #30DayChallenge Day 24/30

Today I was back into Seattle for a presentation. I started this before I went on but didn’t have time to finish it. Mainly because I bumped into 3 old colleagues. Well worth the delay.

Currently reading Dharma Road by Brian Haycock. Nice easy and funny read. Made me realize I need to focus on patience as well as compassion and kindness.

Today’s quote is from Lao Tzu

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you’re going.

#LunchBoxNotes #30DayChallenge Day 23/30

So I came across this lovely quote today from Maya Angelou

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking hope you do it.

As soon as I saw it,I knew I had to use it.

I quickly drew this dog today. It’s one of Ed Emberley’s. If you’ve not seen his books, and you think you can’t draw, then you should look him up.


#LunchBoxNotes #30DayChallenge Day 22/30

Lovely day with the Things today. They actually came in a run with me and the dog this morning. Think they enjoyed it. I know I did. Nice to have a bit of company.

So today’s working note is me trying to work through “One ZEntangle a day.” again.

Yet another Einstein quote 

Logic will get you from a to b. Imagination will get you anywhere.
