Day 22 - Justice. I think as long as I can remember I've had a strong sense that things should be fair but that they just aren't. Life isn't fair and some people get more than their fair share of inequality or suffering. I hope I will be remembered by how I treat others pick myself up again after a fall and my strength of character.
Day 8 - Reader. I almost forgot to lost today's creative challenge because I was engrossed in my book. I LOVE learning and the fact that books make me feel like I have travelled and met all sorts of interesting people and different cultures. Books continually expand my world view. I'm tempted to start a Brave book club with creative educational reading. Watch this space...
Day 9 - Sister. My sister is all kinds of goodness. I tend to be the serious one and she really IS the party. She embraces who she is and flaunts it. She's my sunshine . I wish we didn't live on opposite sides of the world. I'm so thankful to be her little big sister.
Day 10 - Short. Being a shorty at primary school used to bother me. I seemed to have arrived and an adequate 5'3" and now more than ever I am comfortable in my skin. I feel so much taller and more confident on the inside. Here's to the shorties!
Day 11 - Organised. One of my biggest stress relievers is getting organised. I find clearing the clutter at home and on my desk helps me to find some mental calm. My label maker is an essential tool. I get so excited to find the right storage solutions. Being (or getting organised) is one of my essential tips for being more creative. It so much easier when you can actually find things.
Day 12 - Sleepy. I can't remember the last time I wasn't woken at least once in the night or went to bed early and was allowed to sleep until at least 8am! I'm hoping my future holds more sleep ... Until then goodnight.
Day 13 - Strategic. I know that I'm a special (if I could underline or italicise that I would) kind of person who always likes to be prepared for any and every situation. I imagine conversations and scenarios before they happen way in advance and replay events to see how things might have gone differently. Sometimes it's exhausting. I often fear it's really anxiety but I'm hoping I can just label it and say that I'm a very strategic person or that I took the girl guides motto way too much to…
Day 14 - Courage. "Courage is not something that you already have that makes you brave when the tough times start. Courage is what you earn when you've been through tough times and you discover they aren't so tough after all." From Malcolm Gladwell's David & Goliath.
Day 16 - Optimist. So I did a test to see how open and optimistic I am. I think I got 39 out of 100 (not very optimistic) but what struck me was the comment "when you are successful you would likely attribute it to things like luck being in the right place at the right time or the ease of the task... You probably don't take the credit you deserve. Your self-esteem motivation and general well-being would most likely be improved if you realised that you actively influence positive events in…
