Near the end of the year, every year, I become thoughtful. This ‘thinking’ lasts into the new year. I look back at the things I have done, compare it to the list of things I was going to do and reprimand myself for yet again not hitting all of my targets. I get angry, remind myself I’m another year closer to a Stannah stair lift and promise to do better. ‘This year’s going to be different’ I tell myself… every year… sigh….
I did one great thing – I think ( it still doesn’t seem real) – I swam the English Channel as part of an awesome relay team – more about that separately. But in all other things I’d wanted to do – including writing a really great blog – I failed. With a big fat F.
The only people who never fail are those who never try.
So., with this quote in mind, I’m going to try again, try harder, try smarter, try better. Ordinary to Incontinence Pads is not the road I’m following quite yet.
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.
We can all make life better for ourselves and others. Its time I really did DO Better…
In the meantime, here’s to a sparkling 2015. Be extreme and have fun.
