Changes


Southeastern Fall Color and Light.

C

old weather and chicken stock. Isn’t that what you do when it’s cold? Cook something. So, that’s what we did.

Then, I sat down to write this.

I’m always influenced by what, or who, I’m listening to. This time, it’s Brandi Carlile reading her book, “Broken Horses.” It’s bringing up all sorts of emotions. You know how they say, “I laughed, I cried…” Well, that just about says it all.

Let’s just put it this way, personal stories aside, she talks about what it takes to succeed… at anything, although her story is about music.

She’s making me sad for what I haven’t done. For when I haven’t worked hard enough. For all the time wasted.

You know, feelings that I think we all have. If you are lucky, they pass without too much worry. If you are me, you worry. That’s been my constant theme for the last year or so. I’ve made a little progress. Maybe that’s enough.

For now.

  1. I think we all push our levels of achievement quite high and it can be disappointing if we don’t meet them, but in doing so we often forget what we actually have achieved. Part of progress is recognising those landmark moments and celebrating. Without that, motivation can end up rather flat.
