If you Google 10-10-10 you'll find masses of responses...

It's all the buzz today, the date, it's making a lot of people feel giddy!

I LOVE numbers, I really do, I see them everywhere and I'm always looking for patterns and meanings in them.  So, I can't help but be excited by today's date! (imagine how excited I'm going to be about Remembrance Day next year!!!)

I know of a couple being married today - bless them - and what a day to get married, can't say you'd forget that date.  Significantly, the number 10 is often thought to be the number of completion, so for a couple to marry on this date is rather auspicious, don't you think!  I'm sure you remember that who scene from Jerry Maguire, you know the one, "You complete me..."  Yes, well, signifying that you've found the person who completes you on 10/10/10 has got to be a pretty powerful thing!

I also think that in this technological age the binary appeal of the date 101010 has got to be great.  I mean, it speaks to us in a way that particular pattern of numbering has not spoken to humans in generations before ours...  No wonder people are excited!

On doing a quick Google search, I also found that apart from being the number of completion, the number 10 is also considered the number of new beginnings - that shouldn't come as much of a surprise really because endings and beginnings are literally two sides of the same coin, you can't end anything without beginning something else!

So maybe, like me, you're seeking new beginnings?

If that is the case then TODAY would be a really good day for focusing on inviting a new beginning into your life, to start doing whatever you can to bring that new beginning about.  It needn't be a bit thing, what's the saying?  "A walk of a thousand miles begins with just one step"?  Let's take that step together today!  Go find your shades, you'll need them - the future is looking BRIGHT!

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...

At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?

As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …
