Lost for words

[donotprint]This morning I’m feeling a little lost for words. I usually awake with brimming with of ideas with what I want to babble on about but not today.


The only thing to do if your lost for your own words…borrow someone else’s!

Here are some inspiring quotes for the day; I’m hoping by lunch time they will have stimulated my mind to come up something more to say! They all convey the self illumination I’m currently seeking!

“Every artist was first an amateur.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.”

Leon J. Suenes

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. “

Wayne Gretzky

“Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best.”

Henry Van Dyke

“The way to succeed is to double your error rate.”

Thomas J. Watson

“Discontent is the source of all trouble, but also of all progress, in individuals and nations.”

Berthold Auerbach

“A coward gets scared and quits. A hero gets scared, but still goes on.”


To fill the void I also have nice Mango, Banana and Coconut Smoothie topped with Coconut to share!


Having glugged this one down in record time I’m already feeling a little bit more alert. I used some of my new Coconut milk, nothing like the canned variety you buy, but it lovely and sweet with a hint of coconut taste about it. The desiccated coconut on top gave it a nice little boost and also made it look nice and pretty.



Note to self: buy some new large glasses (I’m getting fed up looking at the same ones every morning!

My workout this morning included:
