One Liner Wednesday: Colouring In

“Life lesson from the nursery: Broken crayons can still colour” – Author unknown

Sometimes I feel a bit like a broken crayon, stunted and blunted and scarred by life, so it’s nice to be reminded I can still function effectively in the world.

My mum recently gave me a new colouring book plus a set of matching postcards to colour in too, and I’m really looking forward to getting started… watch this space! ๐Ÿ™‚ 20181219_1024371191503426.jpg

2) Post two quotes for the dedicated topic of the day – ok, no probs, what a topical topic to have been given… truth – ha ha ha! (I wonder if Donald Trump is on WordPress?) ๐Ÿ™‚

‘The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is’ – Winston Churchill

‘Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters’ –ย  Albert Einstein

3) Select three bloggers to take part in 3-2-1 Quote Me – um, OK…

PS If anybody I’ve tagged here doesn’t want to participate, that’s cool – and if anyone I’ve not tagged does, then that’s cool too, please feel free! ๐Ÿ™‚

Famous for Five Minutes

‘In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes’ – Andy Warhol

I don’t think I’d like to be famous, not even for five minutes let alone fifteen. I already worry too much as it is about what people think of me – family, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, customers. I can’t imagine anything worse than having the whole world being critical of me en masse, I think I’d either go stark staring mad or become a total recluse.

It seems to me there’s a refreshing freedom in actively encouraging a quiet, private sort of non-famous lifestyle where you just get on with your own everyday stuff in your own unique way and no-one pays you a blind bit of notice ๐Ÿ™‚

One Liner Wednesday: Creativity Requires Courage


‘Creativity requires courage’ – Henri Matisse

It’s all too easy to stick confidently to what we know, always playing it safe, ensuring we never risk failure by never trying anything new in the first place. It’s never easy to feel vulnerable and uncertain about how to do something new, especially as we get older and already know how to do so much in life, but it’s often oh-so-worth it to learn to be curious, be creative, be courageous all over againย  โค ๐Ÿ™‚
