#43 Daily Writing Journal -Cold is so bad so still in bed. Dream Goal Plan Action Reality.

Cold is so bad so still in bed.

It's horrible and probably the worse I've had in year. It could be the flu, but I'm not sure. My throat was so sore and burning. I feel pants, I really do feel terrible, so I've been stuck in bed.

Dream Goal Plan Action Reality

dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action makes your dreams reality.
I saw this somewhere on a picture and it seemed so simple. Common sense. Simple but difficult to achieve especially if a person has other conflicting goals or priorities.

For example, I had a goal to achieve something within 1-2 years but it took me six years because of a family bereavement, bad relationship drama and awful work environment. It took me a while to snap back, very long while to get back to some sense of normality.

I'm late with my writing goals because I work full time, and write within my spare time.  Writing can be quite obsessive to the exclusion of others so I also have to manage that. So I'm years late. I'm also compromising by self-publishing even though a part of me wants to go the traditional route - but that is a way paved with frustration and disappointment, though the rewards at the end are high.

I also dream way above my 'pay grade' or abilities and at time I need to have a reality check as to what is possible.

Sometimes taking action for make a goal a reality takes a certain amount of risk and moving out of our comfort zone. It's easy to write plans on paper but following can be difficult and hard.

Risk...it's all about risk, conflicting goals and what is important.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
