Thought of the Day #27: Courage

‘Courage is grace under pressure.’ I love this quote. It just makes total sense to me. It’s so easy to panic and fret when pressure occurs. But to stay calm and true to yourself while under pressure is quite a feat. I know that I don’t always react well to stress or pressure, there’s been… Read more »

Thought of the Day #24: Impossible as it may seem

Thought of the Day 19: Enough Nerve

I love this sentiment so much. Why when we grow up do we lose this sense of wonder and belief in the world, others around us and ourselves? Something to ponder another day maybe. As a side note it upsets me how irritating the character of Ginny Weasley was in the Harry Potter films. I don’t… Read more »

Thought of the Day #18: Look up

Image Source: Axel Antas Bergkvist via Unsplash These words from Stephen Hawking are good in a metaphorical and literal sense. I often forget to look up and around me when I’m in a rush or on the commute home and that’s not the best plan as you miss so much of what’s going on –… Read more »
