melancholy ...

Today I did struggle a bit in the morning. My over-zelous behaviour on the weekend meant that at 3am today I was in pain. I didn't know what to do with myself - then James reminded me that I actually have pain killers. So I gobbled them and used my feminine influence to entice James to make me milo to ease the vile taste. He did it - with a grumble - but did it non the less.

I honestly believe that my level of "will" is NOT equally proportionate to my body's ability. James believes that I would be very scary if I was the size of a rugby player! I seem to have a missing link between mental agility and physical ability. Sigh -

So today I was staring at my "To Do" list blankly. I ended up sending out a few quotes for The Grove (which is a good thing) but also pondering the year. Will I be able to get the BT Foundation off the ground, how will my coffee shop go, how do I promote my book and talks better?

I sat down and got quite discouraged that once again my "will" and my "physical" ability were not equal. It is almost paralysing. About 3 weeks ago, my mom and I ran a programme for one of the corporates called "Life Planning". I feel that with a bit of tweaking it can be a highly beneficial programme. Once again my thoughts were tested. So in my melancholy state I reflected on SO many things.

I have a life motto which has come out of my journey and that is "DECIDE to live" This is something that I HAVE to put into practise as I believe we have to walk what we talk. My mother's business is in its 25th year and she has the motto "Living the legacy". I thought that the name "Living your legacy" would be great for a workshop.

I realise that as important it is for me to set my goals, my vision and plan my life journey, I know that I need to commit it to God to open the doors where I am to go and close the doors that I am not meant to pursue. Our life is short and we have a purpose to fulfil during the good and the bad days. If I didn't have any challenges it wouldn't be much of a story would it?

Dear God
Grant me ...
the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage and willingness to change the things I can,
and the wisdom and clarity to know the difference.

So true - our stories would not be very exciting without the challenges that we are thrown. I have always love the prayer you closed with
