“I truly believe we can ALL create and enthuse magic into ‘so-called humdrum little lives’. You don’t just have to be the choreographer, or the conductor of your life script – rather paint your life as the masterpiece it could (one day) be. There is a rich tapestry of talent in every human soul, that flows through the spirit of God. So don’t spend your days stringing and tuning your instrument; start making and playing your unique tunes of music right now.”

MISCELLANOUS THOUGHTS (“pearls of great price”)

 

jotted down in my little green book (that I found in a huge clear-out (thanks so much to my son, Sean)

“Creative minds are rarely tidy…in fact some are fff…flippn messy”

Quotes and phrases that I jotted down (typing them now to try to decipher my atrocious handwriting) and collected (instead of stamps and bottle-tops) along life’s amazing journey

 

Some are my own thoughts, but many are from sources unknown

 

 

I have grouped them under the following headings (roughly

 

* Inspiration (inspirational thoughts)

 

* Racing in the Zone (my passion)

 

* The Mind and Mindpower

 

* Spirit and Spiritual thoughts

 

* Faith and Thoughts on “the spiritual journey”

 

* The Pursuit of a more peaceful world (slightly- my passion)

 

I hope they may uplift, encourage and perhaps even inspire you as they do me

 

Anyway enjoy
