Words of wisdom 4-7-2018

So freaking cold in Jhb this week! Hope the rest of the country in enjoying their snow…we just get the cold wind here.

Nicola is super bummed that there isn’t snow close enough to go see and build a snowman with.

Anyhoo, here are some of the words that caught my eye this week. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Or you know…things that caught my eye.

I may have already posted some of these. Forgive me if I have. They must be stuck in my eye then.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 😉

Enough

7 July , 2015

So…it’s been a loooooong time in the making, but I have reached tolerance point with secret place and the recent shenanigans.

Time to find a new secret place.

You know…since I made the decision I feel like the weight of the world has lifted off my shoulders! I have never been more enthusiastic about the prospect of potentially being unemployed for a bit.

I’ve handed in my resignation, and the reactions have been truly touching. On the first day, when I started telling colleagues and friends in the building there were quite a few who actually started crying! And there are a few people who are actively campaigning to change my mind…all sorts of bribes and promises coming my way at the moment.

I won’t change my mind though. There is no doubt for me that, this is the right time and that it is the best move for me and my family’s future.

Onwards and upwards! 🙂

Ps! I was looking for the perfect picture to add to this post…but I couldn’t pick one. So I’ve gone to my pins and found a whole bunch I had under “Words of wisdom”, that I feel goes well with it. It would take me FOREVER to link them all properly from my phone (where I’m doing this post from), so go find them on Pinterest if you really want to know ‘kay?

The quotes thing is not a standard feature here anymore as you can tell, but I came across these and thought they were worth sharing anyway…enjoy!

  • A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns  home to find it. ~ George A. Moore
  • How many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky?
    Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
    That too many people have died?
    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,
    The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
    ~ Bob Dylan ~
  • I will have poetry in my life. And adventure. And love. Love above all. No… not the artful postures of love, not playful and poetical games of love for the amusement of an evening, but love that…overthrows life. Unbiddable, ungovernable — like a riot in the heart, and nothing to be done, come ruin or rapture. Love — like there has never been in a play. ~ Tom Stoppard in Shakespeare in Love
  • Observe the wonders as they occur around you. Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry moving through, and be silent. ~ Rumi ~

Ps! Tomorrow posts from our vacation in Gordon’s Bay will start trickling through. 😀
