Life Keeps Going so Keep Up!

Life Keeps Going, so Keep Up!

Here's me at the top of Hen Cloud in Staffordshire, with my head in the clouds!

That is a place I have been a great deal recently, with my head in the clouds!! It has felt safe that way. I can dream about what I want and do not have to face the reality of life. However, at some point, you have to go down. ( Personally I do not want to sleep on top of a very high rock with the midges)

So, why the reluctance to face reality - because it's hard. Life at times can be really hard. Sometimes you don't know what to do at all. You have an idea of where you want to be, but have no idea how to get there, so dreaming is pretending that you have the answers. What to do then...

1. Talk to people - lots of people know more about aspects of things I need to do than me, so ask. Most people are happy to help as it makes them feel good.

2. Do something - sounds easy, but isn't - so just do something. It can be almost anything, as it will get you up and doing. It may prove not to be right, but hey, does that matter? In the long run, no. That's how you will learn to do it right. When I did my first blog I was terrified of what people would think. Now, I would like them to think good things of course, but I feel good about them, so that's what matters.

3. Try it our on a friend or family - if you can test out what you are trying on a friendly person, who will be honest but not critical of YOU. Advice can sting sometimes, but friends and family do not want you to get hurt, so they mean well, remember that and also they are NOT criticising you.

4. Just Do It - that great NIKE slogan, but it is so true. Hey ho, it is still better than doing nothing, as then dreams stay as just that, dreams. By doing something you do get closer to the reality that you want. You may not travel in a straight line to get there, but that is part of the fun, if you remain open to learning.

Remember - never think you are the only one who doesn't know what to do - most of us don't and are just flying by the seat of our pants and hanging on. Life - it's a great ride if you let it!
