In Between Time

We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,

We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives

We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind

But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much

Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.

Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you

The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them

Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been

Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, ‘It might have been.

John Greenleaf Whittier

Is regret not a death before our time

Knowing that we didn’t do all that we could,

Knowing we could have done more, but we procastinated or talked ourselves out of doing something

Watching the moment slip bye us, whilst we sit in a dark corner pretending we wasn’t that bothered anyway

Whilst inside we have just died.

Do all you can, after all saying it was is alot better than it might have been

It was a good effort even though it didn’t work out
It was a good business
It was a good time.

They are felt with the heart

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”

The little prince

It’s not the mansion that’s beautiful, It’s the hard work you put in to acquire it that makes it so,

It’s not the abs you want, its the feeling of achievement you get once you have them

It’s not the relationship, just two people together, Its all the hardships you’ve been and overcome together that make it

It’s not the things we own, or our jobs we do its all the things we cannot see but have the biggest impact,

Happiness isn’t the holiday, or the cash in the bank, or the dream partner,

It is and always will be the work and the effort we put in.

“People where you live, the little prince said, grow five thousand roses in one garden… Yet they don’t find what they’re looking for… And yet what they’re looking for could be found in a single rose.”

2020 isn’t over yet

2020 isn’t over yet

So don’t give up on it.

Yeah things haven’t gone your way

So what?

A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing

But they dont blame it on the year

And they don’t just throw in the towel

It’s not been the best year for anyone

Yet there is still time to make a better landing

Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow

Just Show Up

Just show up

Every day and put the work in,

It doesn’t matter how bad it is, commits to it daily,
hundreds, thousands of bad pages, bad reps, bad drawings

Keep going, because the more bad work we do, the closer we get to producing something good,

Out of bad, we can create good, but out of nothing remains nothing

We are not the universe we are not going to create everything from one big bang’s worth of hard work,

We need to show up.
