|We learn, we live and we live and we learn … and then we act upon our findings!|
I took a peaceful walk in the reserve today – it was my first actual walk of the week by myself – although Suze and l did take an afternoon/evening walk yesterday together……………….
It’s been an interesting week and it’s still only Thursday . Today we have beautifully hot weather with astonishing blue skies once more – which is way better than a couple of days ago when it was absolutely hammering it down with rain. My mouth is also better than it was Tuesday following Monday’s dental day and my stomach is better following the hellish time l had Wednesday or more precisely 3am Tuesday morning to 5pm yesterday afternoon and still with a tender stomach till around 10pm last night.
Why? Because l had bought some Pringles Monday afternoon and forgot that my stomach hates them and so too does my digestion and combined they both punished me for the few l had. I realised Monday night it was a bad idea, so l threw the remainder away which was just over a half tube … but the damage was done and l was already too late.
Today l am better .. but my stomach is still marginally sore and bruised after repeated stomach cramps and toilet trips between Tuesday 3am – 5pm – a total of 20 trips …. a valuable lesson learned there was to NEVER eat Pringles again!! EVER EVER!! Terrible lesson to learn and have to endure after only consuming perhaps 12 of the wafer like crisps – but hey ho, my own fault!
But this week has been kind of productive in other ways … not even ‘kind of’ but more of the definite kind of as opposed to the ‘indefinite kind of in life. As they say we learn and we live and we live and we learn …. which l have been doing these last few days. I have been studying people and the behaviour of said people and observing those same people and learning from them, unbeknownst to them … but that is what it is all about when we say we live and learn.
I am quite cynical as a person, l am not alone, not here in WordPress anyway as l see many other cynical people everyday here, but l decided to utilise that cynicism and try and turn it into more of a positive energy. Yes l am cynical, but l am more of an actualist or perhaps a pragmatic realist – it doesn’t really matter in the long run … what does is to somehow turn that negativity around and make something positive from it ….. which l did.
I came to realise also that my second blog to be wasn’t going to be enough and so a third blog was created last night which will make sense to those it is visible to when it launches l guess but not now when it is merely an empty unthemed blog with a domain name attached and not visible to anyone else.
I just came to realise that it needed to be done – that if this blog – the Guy blog – is now very much a personal blog, and the second blog is to be very much a business journal/workshop then the third blog can only be the actual business blog! I was very pleased with myself when yesterday Suze and l spent a good two and a half hours hammering all of this out. I had quite the buzz on and the buzz was still with me today when l was sorting out this blog’s navigation system and once more condensing it down as well as redefining my writing scheduler and thrilled that it now has the space for three blogs on it …….. l remember the days when that board held only one blog and yet now – it will hold three blogs!
It’s what we do though isn’t it? We evolve, we all change, we alter our directions – it takes an understanding of yourself and your desires to come to realise that the changes you personally have been undergoing have to materialise somewhere, somehow – otherwise what’s the point to looking at changing yourself if you don’t actually action it?
…….. the walk in the reserve was nice and peaceful and calming and warm, l shall take a walk around the ramparts slightly later on today also, just to get some fresh air and it will be good to get out of this house as it is so stuffy with the heat.
Thanks for reading ……. the photos below are from the reserve this morning, l will explain more of all of this content in due course in other posts …. till then, catch you next time.
