worthwhile connections...

Journal page enhanced with coffee


Somethings are worth reframing, rewording and even redoing. I have to admit I am the first to put my hand up to not doing things if they don't feel right. Sometimes I get tested to see how committed I am to my decisions, other times I have to look at from a different perceptive.To see them from a different view point, to get my head around it and to help make it a better fit. Then it becomes more who I am.

At the moment I am in love with the word 'reframing'.



I have reframed my thoughts on fb fan pages. I used to think it was a daggy idea and just wasn't in my language! now I'm see it is worth considering, perhaps there is even opportunity and I have created a fb artsy fun-sharing page. So if you would like to 'be-friend' me please do....



I have always had a lot of resistance to the following gadget on blogger. I know,I know, but sometimes it IS the small things...I didn't want to follow anyone, but do I want followers? I want to inspire others, but there isn't a button for that. A poem came to mind when I realised I wanted to reframe my perceptive on this...



"Do not walk in front of me, for I may not follow

Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead,

But walk beside me and be my friend."

Albert Camus (thanks Donna)

Now I call it my connection gagdet.....

oh Nic - I LOVE that page! So glad to 'meet' you! I agree with what you wrote regarding Aussie blogs - building community on-shore, it's an important thing. So I'll be back for sure! And that beautiful poem - by Albert Camus - always hung on the back of our Loo door as kids growing up - I have memorised it, I even know how many letters are in that one! lol :)
