I've just been chatting with a dear friend or as I like to refer to her #spawnofsatan and I have challenged her to write a list of 100 things that are great about her life and about her. 

So I figured I needed to do it too.

It's very easy to focus on all those things that you dislike about where you are right now, but to change your life you need to know what you want to take with you not the things you want to leave behind.

It's like giving someone directions but instead of telling them where to go, you tell them where they shouldn't go.

I love number 87 - that failure excites you. I am really trying to embrace this part of your philosophy, Cathy, as it turns out that a. failure is not so bad and b. you can learn a lot from it. I also love your number 24 although i like any, not just in the bush. It would be wierd if we couldn't.

That was such a huge lesson for me! I mean about failure, not about bush wees :)

I love this quote:
"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better."
Samuel Beckett
