ngv – would have to say is my favourite gallery

Late last year, completely by chance, I ran into one of my long time Imaginary Internet Friends for the first time In Real Life – in a worlds colliding kind of context. He introduced me to the wonderful Catherine Croll who was accompanying him.

Kate and I happened to be at another worlds colliding function last week and she asked what exciting things I’ve been doing. Me: “ummm … not a lot really”. Kate: “okay, what exciting things do you have planned?” Me: “errmm … pretty much more of the same”. Kate: ” well, what are you going to do about it?”

This blew my mind! What a great question! And what am I going to do about it?

Then a couple of days later, I read an fabulous post by the excellent anyresemblance who recounted some coaching advice she’d recently received from a colleague:

“Think of your current job as the one you always wanted”, she said “Now, what are you going to do with it to make it just like that?”

This also blew my mind! I need someone in my life to give me this kind of guidance (I’m very fortunate I have it by proxy).

And lastly, when I was all grumpish and full of extreme sooking, I came across this:

things I do when I am having a bad day

The Stop-Being-a-Whiny-Bitch Scavenger Hunt
With 3.5 hours left in the day, I had to:
• Fix something
• Demo something
• Appreciate something
• Do something to make tomorrow easier
• Do something ridiculous

I am totally busting this out next time I am whingey and full of self pity. Though I probably should find a replacement for the demo-ing.

As an aside, if you have not read diy diva, you totally should. She is completely amazing – renovating a farm house and associated barns and such and raising animals and a garden by herself in addition to holding down quite demanding full time job.

Very much food for thought – when I can actually get my head away from year-end SML stuff. Roll on 2015/16!
