I can’t quite get my head around the fact we’ve just entered November. What? November?! & With it comes the scary/happy/sad & emotional reality, that Bear turns 3 this month. 3 For crying out loud, when did that happen? HOW did that happen?
Life just feels like it’s whizzing by at the speed of light. I find myself trying to appreciate & absorb every little detail possible, not wanting to miss a beat, but inevitably that isn’t always the case. This year, not unlike others that have preceded us, has been action packed, filled with laughter & love, sadness & emotions.
I’m a classic ‘over thinker’; I procrastinate far too much, especially when it comes to putting pen to paper (or more appropriately on here, fingers to keyboard). In part, because I always want to be very thorough & I’m a self confessed perfectionist: but also, I have so many thoughts & dreams floating around in my head, that I struggle to pin down just one.
Far from being a trait I dislike, in fact, I believe it has many benefits. But the main hindrance as I see it, is the amount of time this behaviour consumes, I often find a single idea takes double the anticipated time to complete (I’m a text book Pisces!)
Our recent escape to Miami allowed me some time to rebalance & I’ve decided to take advice from the legend that is Walt. Walt Disney. More specifically from Frozen, & just ‘Let It Go’. When I envisioned Cool Bananas, I wanted to capture snippets of things within the daily grind that made me smile, little nuggets that make me happy. As a family we constantly strive to create fantastic memories that we’ll cherish, & of course little Bear & Mr Bananas are my ultimate ‘happiness creators’. But I’ve decided to share more of ‘me’ on these pages. Nothing particularly intellectual, less writing from time to time, just a little bit of, well, what ever takes my fancy & makes me smile. Because life can get too serious & bog you down sometimes: it’s good to ‘Let it go’ & just celebrate the simple things.
Without further a do: This week I’m Loving……….
My Dungarees, I’m all over ma overalls!
