I'm learning to...

...Live life to the fullest...
 ...Listen to my body and not burn the candle at both ends. Much...
...Wine match judiciously...
 ...Treasure my expat friends as a second family...
 ...Not sweat the small stuff...
...Climb Windmills...
...Turn the outside world off and watch a silly movie...
...Slake my blogging addiction...
...Occasionally use centre justification of type to good effect...
 ...Take breaks...
...Make a mean blueberry pancake...
...Laugh at myself...
...Have the confidence to be the best that I can be...
...Know when enough is enough...
...Appreciate the simple joy of Toast...
...Take risks...
...Appreciate a well executed Ollie...
...Aim for the best doors of the tube trains I use frequently...
...Trust my gut instinct...
...Enjoy...
...Spell things correctly...
...Appear in photos...
...Understand that life is a crazy, wonderful journey...
...Find unicorns (though I'm never quite sure how to capitalise them)...
...Be thankful...
...Know that there will never really be an end to this list...

  3. That's funny! I totally get the 'have the confidence to be the best that I can be' - that does take confidence!

  4. Obviously "wine match judiciously" means something else entirely...but I imagined you in a judge's robe presiding over a boxing match between two different bottles of wine. I've been extremely busy lately. Maybe I'm finally going mad....

  6. Sometimes I give up trying not to burn the candle at both ends and just think of ways to make the candle longer.... Still haven't worked that out.


    Mmm toast. I should buy some bread.

  7. Wonderful advice. Especially the part about turning the world off and watching silly movies. This reminds of a little tiny card I got in grade school which I still treasure: "Its the little things that bug us and tend to hold us back. You sit upon a mountain but not upon a tack."

  8. It's so important Mandy - I find myself so often bogged down in the small, insignificant details that don't matter at all.
