DOODLES


I draw doodles. 

It seems that whenever I have a pen in my hand and the nib touches down on a napkin, a post-it or a piece of yellow paper, I feel the compulsion to roll over it with whatever concoction falls into my head.

Boxes, flowers, houses, circles or stick men.  Whatever images plays in my mind at the time.

I'm sure that if I choose to google it there would be some psychological reason for the choice of doodle.  All I know is that I do it because I like it.  

I think the doodling speaks well to my new found sense of creativity, moving onwards towards another destination, due to announced shortly. 

I'm not scared or nervous. In fact, I'm so excited I'm jumping with it. 

Experience is the best teacher in the world and I'm a great believer that if you don't listen the first time round, you will be sent another experience until you do.  And I was always a good student.

As Confucius once said "Life is very simple. We insist on making it complicated." 

Never has a truer word been said and recently I have found that the simple pleasures are most anticipated. 

When you take a step back and think about where you are and where you want to be it comes down to one simple singular realisation.

This is not a rehearsal. 

This one wild and precious life that we have been gifted with should be lived with passion born from your soul.  And if you have found your passion; celebrate it, shout about it, live it and love it.  Because if it makes you smile then that is moment worth living. 

So, if I could leave you with one parting wish, I would like it to be this; chase your passion and make your moments matter.

They fill up a lifetime.
