This week, I decided to take a last minute break to the beach! There is only so much a gal can take of those icy Jozi winters so the decision was an easy one. I have been soaking up the sun and salty water with our daughters and my two nephews, Ryan and Michael.
Ryan turned 18 in April. He drove us all the way from Jozi to Ballito. I marveled at how not that long ago, we used to rock him to sleep as he wailed loudly from dreadful colic cramps. Now I get to relax in the passenger seat as he capably drives us hundreds of kilometers to our holiday destination!
Interestingly, it took him about 10 kilometers to figure my car out - while navigating the streets of Jozi. I got a new car in March last year and since I knew how to make it go fast and stop, I thought I had it waxed! Ryan got into the car and instantly figured out how to use the cruise control, play his music from his cell, use brake hold and a seemingly endless other array of features I kind of vaguely knew about but made zero effort to master.
How many times in life do we do that? Use something at a percentage of its capability? Use it just enough to get by? Perhaps even our brains!
Embrace your inner teenager today and take a closer, deeper look. You might be amazed by what you learn!
Now I must dash, the beach calls...as a result, I will pick up on WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A GREAT PROPERTY INVESTOR? next week!
WHAT I AM READING: City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert
Perfect beach fodder!
I am a huge fan of Elizabeth's work - and that is saying something since I hardly EVER read novels. There is something to lyrical and magical about her writing, you get drawn in on the first page and transported to another world where you fall in love with the characters and savor the adventures they embark on.
Her new book is no exception! Make sure it is on your beach list this year!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK:
I love this quote. Isn't this true every single time? When you feel like you are free falling through life, unable to find any edges to hang onto, when life feels completely out of control, it can be terrifying, debilitating even.
Then eventually, one day you wake up and realise you are transformed, you didn't actually need anything to hang onto.
Look for the anchor within yourself and then relax and allow life to surprise and delight you!
