Thinking & Feeling

“The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.” Horace Walpole

I'm reading Eat, Pray, Love, and am LOVING it. I have felt, thought, cried, smiled and laughed while and because of reading it. I am more self-aware, more introspective and less reactive because of it. I am letting it filter through me and I am talking stock. I recognise myself a lot in her. My journey has a lot of similar threads.

This year is going to be 20-zen for me. More about keeping my balance and not giving my power over to anyone else. Being real, authentic, unapologetically, and un-regrettably ME.

I will be daring and bold when I want to. Meek and mild when I want to, and everything in between.

I will not be afraid to try. To love, to learn, to TRY - succeed or fail. I will not be overcome by fear or feelings of inadequacy or weakness.

In testament to this on New Years Eve - which was at a Greek Restaurant in JHB - I boldly, and rather shockingly, broke plates. ON. MY. HEAD!

What a rush! It was freaking amazing. It may sound stupid, but it felt so empowering. Like I was a karate master or something...

Anyhoo. 2010. Wild and fun, but responsible and sensible. Balanced together as 20-Zen!


  1. allyoull ever need is a matchbox filled with hope. or half-filled. you go girl. don'nt stop this time.

    LOL I have always wanted to break plates - ok - not on my head though but still :)

  3. Good for you Jane. Its all in the balance with some plate breaking for good measure.

    xxxx Lots of love to you and those precious boys xxxxxx
