Hello all,

Hope this finds you well. It’s been a busy few weeks, and despite all efforts to stay on top of daily posts, I’ve clearly not. However, not all failure is bad. In fact, that leads me on to my thought for today. I’ve made some decisions this week. I’ve decided to take some of my own medicine and make a few changes to the sail of my ship –  called life. I won’t tell you what they are, because it’s irrelevant right now, but what I will state my favourite observation that making a change first starts in the mind. I don’t care who you are, or what you do every human decision passes through the central control station, otherwise known as brain. This is where we decide (create action) even of the smallest form. Sound patronising? Well I don’t mean to be, but it’s amazing how often we forget, or think we know something and really when it comes to it we don’t. It’s not that we don’t have knowledge, but how often can we say in today’s fast driven world that we truly know something, without jumping onto our smartphone, tablet, or laptop. I read an article a few years back that outlined a few concerns on how social media, and technology could in affect us in the future. It suggested that to be so relient on our computer to remember phone numbers, definition of words and all sorts was keep us dumb as we no longer need to revise, or hold information for any length of time – given the amount of information available online, on our mobile phones, and accessible at the click of a button, it’s evident that there has become a why bother attitude in and amongst today’s culture. I’ve even noticed certain areas in my own life that relies so heavily on information stored online. Gosh, we’ve become so busy that we can barely process what’s worth remembering and what’s not.  I believe it’s true that we  can’t change what we don’t know, but we can seek to know and make a change. Also, did you know that the slightest touch of a ships sail can set you on a completely different course?  Interesting isn’t it..?
