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
Hit my 10,000 steps.
Last day. Made it. Today’s quote from Maya Angelou seems appropriate.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the note you have
Penultimate challenge day today on Superbowl Sunday. Started messing around with calligraphy. Not so beautiful writing but it’s my first attempt. Be kind ☺
So today I tried shading. Used the wrong pencil. It went horribly wrong. Ahh well. So Thomas Edison’s quote seemed appropriate
I’ve not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that don’t work.
So today I was making the last of my demo videos and an update meant i couldn’t get it to work. Finally managed to sort it so had to use this quote
If at first you don’t succeed
Try, try , try again.
So did this one whilst watching the X-Files. Hope they bring it back for more than the initial 6 episodes.
Anyway, quote by Edmund Hilary
It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves
Today’s quote from Steve Jobs
Your time is limited. Don’t waste it living someone else’s life
Did my first run/walk around campus today. Bones aching a bit, but seeing this sign made it worth while.
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.
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.
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.
