manifesto


I'm home sick today and my current surroundings are a far cry from the domestic bliss I posted about this weekend. I am (happily) disheveled, the laundry has piled around me (again) and the dishes sit forgotten in the sink. Sometimes when I blog and when I read other blogs, it is such a focus on the positive that it seems that everyone is just skipping around merrily, baking pies, lounging in hammocks, riding bikes through tree lined streets all while throwing their heads back and laughing, without a care in the world. 

Real life isn't nearly as glamorous so I suppose that is why we (myself included) tend to focus on the more positive aspects of our daily grind instead of giving you a laundry list (no pun intended) of what has gone wrong or hasn't work out. In keeping with focusing on the positive I came across this manifesto from the Women in Business website. It spoke to me in volumes, a perfect reminder for this time in my life, when collecting experiences, following your passion and trusting your instinct are far more important than the pile of laundry sitting next to me...

so true!!! I think we all need to remind ourselves every now and then that life might pass us by if we are too busy worrying about the housework..

Thank you for sharing - this is very timely and inspirational advice! I've been trying to focus more on these things myself and I've been finding that any reminders/ reinforcement of this kind really help to focus on what's important. And besides, the dishes seem to have a way of getting done eventually...
