Life This Week 15/10/2018: What I Have Learned Lately.

I've just come off a couple of weeks' leave and in between the travel, the break from routine and the family time, I've found myself relearning a few truths about life.

Always look up.  Aim for the sky and its stars.  Never look down on anyone but also never let anyone else drag you down with them.

Actively find those special moments in the day.  The ones that are just yours.  Take them in with all your sense.  Imprint them on your brain.

Never let the opportunity to be a tourist in your own city pass you by.  I went to Madame Tussaud's with Master SSG last week and we had a blast.  I got my fix of Kate and Wills as well as Amanda Keller.

Shame my selfies with T Swift and Audrey H didn't quite turn out.

Never be afraid to imagine and believe.

It's best to be just who you are and pale imitation of your true self.  Wear those Havs to breakfast at your 5 star hotel if you want need to.

Something that is as important as being kind to yourself is giving yourself credit where its due.  Not necessarily by building yourself a gold embellished Victory Tower and creating a magnificent park around it but perhaps just a pat on the back plus or minus a glass of celebratory something.

It wasn't just luck and it wasn't just the people around you.  It was you who made it happen.  Acknowledge this and accept the rewards unapologetically.

What have you learned or relearned about life lately?


  1. This is such a fun post! It's hard to remember little pieces of advice like this sometimes when we get so caught up in the stresses of life!

  2. A good list and a good reminder. Thanks, SSG, for sharing. #lifethisweek

  3. Many pearls of wisdom in this post! I always look up, because beauty is everywhere. And I've worn thongs to a fancy hotel breakfast too. Why not!

  4. Love all of these! And you've woven your pics into it all beautiful. I especially like "Always look up. Aim for the sky and its stars. Never look down on anyone but also never let anyone else drag you down with them." I'm keeping that as my mantra for this week. Thanks!

  5. Those area great collection of things you've learned lately! I especially like the one where we be kind to ourselves and give ourselves a pat on the back when it's due. We don't do that often enough!

  6. Loved these little reminders! :)

  7. Love this. Fun and really insightful.

  8. How lovely to see the bits and pieces of your 'learning' here. I hope the weeks back have not been too unkind.... life moves at a fast rate doesn't it? Almost the end of SSG School Boy first year of formal education. Thank you for joining #lifethisweek. Next week's optional prompt is Easy Meal Ideas. Denyse
