Skating on thin ice

Loving this thought from Bryce Courtenay ...... 'When you're skating on thin ice you might as well tap dance'. 

Ha...so how about that? When life is swirling around you...face it! Just get out there and do it!! Stop procrastinating, waiting for the exact, right moment (talking to myself here) ... do it now, live it now, be it now! 

A few random thoughts from his book
'You will learn more from a brilliantly executed failure than from a success planned within the dreary safety of what you already know.
Winning easy is boring, pointless work. 
If you tell yourself something can't be done, 
you are creating an opportunity for someone else to do it. 
So .... 
Failing to try is far worse than trying and failing
therefore .... 
When we procrastinate we put the art of living on standby.' 

Such delightful thoughts from - 'A recipe for Dreaming'. Life is indeed a great adventure and we have a significant part to play in the pages of history. Purposed, planned and destined for a time such as this. 

When all is said and done what will be your story?

A Recipe for Dreaming (In my own words)

* An unbound mind
* An uncomplicated spirit
* A little ambition
* A scoop of persistence
* Oodles of patience
* A portion of hope
* Sprinkles of purpose and
* Glimpses of destiny
So keep on dreaming, anything is possible.

'Playing it safe is the most dangerous thing you can do' - Bryce Courtenay

I wrote this some time ago...and its still on my mind, its a tune that seems to continually play across my heart - to dream big and live a full, vibrant, effervescent life.
