Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 228

“When I’m tired, I rest. I say, ‘I can’t be a superwoman today.”

Jada Pinkett Smith

Thanks Spidey!

Yes! Yes! Jada, Yes!!!

I agree with you 100%!

I just wish I could follow that thought process through.

I need to really learn when to step back and say “no, I can’t do that. I am too tired.”

Instead I am always running on nearly empty, refuelling just enough to get through, then running myself low again.

That is not a good way to live.

I really need to take Mrs Pinkett Smith’s advice, so I can continue to be a superwoman, like all those others out there!

So… tell me, do you know when to take a break?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 224 – Dreams

img_00411

Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream.

Debby Boone

Thank you Spidey, and hello Peeps! It’s good to be back with you all again after my feeling unwell last week.

I really love the quote Spidey found for me to ponder upon this week.

Dreams.

We all have them.

I don’t mean the things that float around in your head when you are asleep, but your aspirations.

Your hopes.

Your dreams.

Those goals you wish to achieve in your life.

We all need something to live for, to work towards, to reach.

Without dreams, what are we doing? Living each day, just to get through it, to the next.

That’s not life.

That’s existance.

Whereas if you have that dream to strive to make a reality, you have a focus.

Some may dream of a happy life at home, with a perfect family.

Some want that new car, or a specific job role.

You may dream to meet someone special, or important to you.

My dream is to see my novel finally in print, out there, for others to read and share.

And now, because I have focussed on it, that dream is a few more steps closer to reality. The editor has read it, so the editing is happening. A cover is being looked at. And I have author branding! Eeeks! With a website, and Facebook page to match!

My dream is to have my own class – truly my own class.

As the last few years I have been team teaching with certain colleagues, and though my time is just that, my time in class, it’s not the same as having full responsibility for your own classroom, and your children. Maybe the next academic year will bring that to fruition.

My dream is to have my forever home.

I love where we live, but the children are fast outgrowing the space we have. It’s crunch time. We are looking at whether it is better to go big and extend, or to spruce up, sell up and buy the perfect place… It’s a work in motion.

There are a few of my dreams, and I am slowly working on each of them. I don’t want to get to the end of my days, feeling like I never gave them my best shot.

So… tell me, what are you doing to make your dreams come true?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤

” Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It is about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene

You gotta hand it to Vivian Greene!

When life gives you lemons, and all that…

You have to learn how to live with what life throws at you, and what you have been given. If you wait for the perfect moment to arrive, you miss so much of your own life, and experiences that you may never have again.

So go! Dance in the rain, and enjoy it!

 

And I nominate..Josy, Claire, and Angela!

Thank you and good night day!

And there you have it! I hope my three days of quotes have refreshed you with rain splendour!

So, Day two…

” The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.” – Dolly Parton

Wise woman, that Dolly Parton!

I’m all about embracing the negatives, because they always bring about positives… we could get all cliched, you know, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel, every cloud has a silver lining, etc but hey, their meaning is true! There is always something to hang on to, something to help reel you towards that rainbow, but often you do need to get rained on to achieve it.

And I nominate… Alice, David, and Amelia!

Thank you and good night day!

I’ll be back tomorrow with day 3’s showery offering!!!!

So, Day one…

“Some people feel the rain. Others get wet.” Bob Marley

Image result for some people feel the rain others just get wet

Love this quote!

Do you feel the rain? I love to watch it. I love to feel it when it is warm, in the tropical countries. I love to think about how it is nourishing everything around, even though it may have just soaked me due to an unexpected downpour!

However, when it means we can’t let the caged animals kids out at school at break or lunchtime, like yesterday, it creates an atmosphere akin to a lunatic asylum in a school as kids NEED  fresh air and run around time!

It was a bit of a mad day, but that would be whole other post!

So, there’s my post for the day.

And I nominate… Katie, Hayley, and Willow!

Thank you and good night day!

I’ll be back tomorrow with day 2’s rainy offering!!!!
