the view from the end of Water St. // last year's nest // the view from the lawn of Thinker's Lodge // ice, ice baby // the crescent beach // nature thrills me, nature heals me // love the colour palette of this winter scene // WOW ! so much life on a fallen log
one of the many, many things I love about the connected world of the internet is the ability to create & cultivate friendships with people from all over, people you may never ever meet. Though I live in an extremely beautiful & peaceful part of the world I often feel extremely isolated from my creative peers. Lately, partially because of an excellent FREE North American phone plan, I have been connecting and have become phone friends with creative colleagues from all over North America- Heather Reneaux is just one of these many new friends - she sent me this quote (which she received from "the Daily motivator") that she hoped would help with my recent struggles, mistakes, regrets & obvious failures - it did help, it does help - we need to constantly be supporting each other lifting each other & ourselves up, up, UP anyway we can ;-)
Thank you Heather !! xoxo s
Nothing to be afraid of
Failure is nothing to be afraid of. Highly successful people experience it all the time, and they do just fine.
What will hold you back is not failure. What will hold you back is doing nothing because you fear failure.
Say what you authentically believe, without worrying about whether or not you're saying the right thing. Express what you truly feel, without being concerned about what others will think.
And by all means, take action without fretting or procrastinating or fearing what might or might not happen. Prepare yourself as best you know how, make sensible, well-informed choices, and then get busy doing it.
Sometimes, the result won't be to your liking. But you can deal with that,
and you'll never know what works and what doesn't until you step forward and act.
The way to succeed at anything is to take action even though failure is a definite possibility. Push yourself constantly
forward into action, and make a beautiful, unique difference in life.
I am beside myself with joy, thrilll-dom & I have a much stronger belief that having faith will prevail- my blog is back.
THANK YOU ! THANK YOU ! THANK YOU ! Madam U.
