Imagine how cool it would be, if we thought first and then acted on those thoughts.
I know, we all say we do, but do we … really?
If yesterday was your most fantastic day ever – then you know how to do that.
Doing better, or more, or sharing what you learned to make someone else’s day fantastic shouldn’t be so hard, eh?
If yesterday was less than fantastic – then why repeat it?
Why repeat what has not brought incredible pleasure, value and happiness?
We CAN do more than we’ve done before – not because it is easy or hard but because there is no point being who we were yesterday. That’s been done. We know what to do, how to do and therefore easily do what we’ve done before. We just have to repeat ourselves every day – just like yesterday and the day before that. Where is the fun in that? Where is the growth in that?
Who finds happiness in remaining static, however good it was – when we can grow and change?
If we create something, someone will know. We will.
If we clean up something, someone will know. We will.
If we improve our ability to do something, someone will know. We will.
If we change the world, or do something to change just one life, someone will know. We will.
Out attitude, our mindset – is far easier to move than furniture, easier to sculpt than stone, easier to compose than music, easier to stir than cake batter.

morning walk: 5C/42F, gray sky, Sunday quiet – we walked and walked, solved some problems, picked up some ideas, mashed around some thoughts – and came home again. Gusta seems back to normal. I had ice-cream (Mackay’s Butter Brickle) for breakfast, Gusta licked the bowl. Life is perfect.
