Ok so I know I am reflector and do a fair amount of it especially of late. However, over the last few days I have had time to think and look back due to the passing of a close relative. It is a funny old time and my mind has definitely been active. Having looked back into my past where this person was present in a time when I was growing up, I have thought to myself how he has impacted me and what the key things are to remember him by. Well, in some ways that is easy, it is the ability to laugh and joke at yourself or over anything and mainly to enjoy life. Not a bad thing to be remembered by :o)
The past few days seem to have flown by, even if a few nights sleep have been sacrificed. Perhaps it has been good timing as over the last few months I have done a lot of looking back into the past and using the positive and negative experiences to assist the present and hopefully the future. So in my distracted state I have been creating a presentation for my new public speaking role, I should have also been busy editing but with recent events I just didn't feel like it. Instead, I have been sidetracked and have been busy looking back into my past and ended up creating this. It is my first video blog, so bare with me.
It makes me laugh, it makes me smile, it makes me think where I have been, what I am currently doing and then where I hope to be. Once it was complete, I did feel a kind of ease and as if I can move forward again.
Now I need to continue that final push to finish editing, strive forward in my paddling training in readiness for selection and embrace the future. I need to keep together my inner self confidence and try to push away the self doubt that always keeps coming to the surface.
Well as the oven timer is now bleeping, it must be my signal to stop and publish this...
