Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 135

“When I look into the eyes of an animal I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I see a soul.” AD Williams

Thanks for this one Spidey!

It fits in with the fact that our family has just increased by two new beings, and four new feet/claws!

The intention was not to go and buy a new pet(s) but seeing those two feathery beauties yesterday, I felt a connection straight away.

The parrotlets, Heer and Ranjha, who have now joined our menagerie, were sat on a perch surrounded by squalking budgies, canaries and zebra finches. They groomed each other, and snuggled up together, flying around a little then settling down, quietly ‘talking’ to one another.

One look at them and I felt a connection.

We went away, and something pulled us to come back.

The next thing, they were in the car with us on the way home!

It was the same with Hubby Dearest and Sonu Singh, our furbaby… even though he wasn’t really a ‘cat-person’, something clicked when he saw the photo of this ginger kitten, and he just had to bring him ‘home’!

Like he became my third child, I can already feel these two becoming my feathered offspring too!

Right, I’d better go and check the cage, Sonu has been rather interested in his feathered siblings…

“Don’t worry about failures. Worry about the chances you miss if you don’t even try.” – Jack Canfield

Thanks for this one Spidey!

How many times have you stopped before doing something, worried about if you are capable or not?

How many times have you sat back, and then watched another take the chance you had, seen them rise and soar, while you are still there at the viewing point: comfortable but not stretched?

Many times, I’m guessing, if we are honest with ourselves.

When you want something, but in order to achieve it, you have to risk the road less travelled, it’s often easier to take the easy route.

But what if you tried to overcome that?

Take a chance.

Switch off your personal Sat Nav, and try to go down that obstacle-ridden route.

I have to say, I’m kinda at this stage in life now with work. I’ve been given a lot of new stuff to do.  I could have said no, but there are so many benefits to my taking these new roles, and attempting to complete them.

I have had people question whether I can do it.

I am not determined to prove them wrong to the detriment of my own well-being, but equally, I am convinced that with the right organisation, and the support of those around me, I can do this.

There will be challenges.

But there will also be opportunities that I would never have had before. And I am learning that I have a voice. And if I don’t use it, I will never be heard.

So embrace those challenges, travel all roads, not just the ones that are familiar, and stretch yourselves!

Have a great Sunday Peeps!

“Youthfulness is about how you live, not when you were born.” – Karl Lagerfeld

Well, I’ll take that advice Mr Lagerfeld and Spidey, thank you!

I truly believe that age is only a number. Act how you feel, and enjoy your days, not thinking about getting older, but just remember all the memories you are accumulating!

Have a wonderful week Peeps, and grab a piece of cake on me!

“Being happy never goes out of style.” – Lily Pulitzer

Thanks for that Spidey!

In that case, I’m planning on wearing my smile with pride for a long time to come!

Hope you all have a wonderful smiley day, not just today, but every day. Be happy, it makes everything seem more positive!

Happy Sunday Peeps!

“Your speed doesn’t matter. Forward is forward.” – Anon

A wonderful reminder for us from Spidey this week Peeps!

This is so true! Sometimes I have to remind myself of this.

I am guilty of thinking that if I say I have to do something, I have to do it now!

Take my writing at the moment. I had so many plans, and ideas.

#RiNoWriMo.

Numbers were calculated, though not set in stone. But still, I wanted to succeed.

Now I have really taken this quote to heart.

I have accepted that I most likely, will not have finished my first draft at the end of August. But I started this 17 years ago, so from 13,000 words to close to 50,000 in three weeks is a pretty good chunk!

And I will continue to add to it, until my creativity is spent. When that happens, I will refresh myself, and then carry on, and hopefully, in the not too distant future, there will be a post telling you all to buy my book!!!!

Have a wonderful week Peeps!
