Thankful Thursday- a clear head

Ok so I am doing this Thankful Thursday on a Friday, but this week has been a write off so honestly you could convince me of it being any day.

Today for once I had a moment of total clear thinking in my head. Normally this doesn't happen as there is so many to-do lists etc going on in there it is just voices fighting over the top of each other.

I was standing out the back with two other woman watching the alpacas have sex (as you do) and my head was clear and I was able to really think about the directions that I want my life to take.  Where I hope to take my business ventures, my blog etc. All those little (but yet big) thoughts that get pushed aside by the day to day voices that just take over.

And while having my moment of clear thinking I realised the big thing is that all these directions that I want my life to go in, dont have to be done tomorrow! (gosh these alpacas will be pregnant for over 11 months) So things can be developed over a extended period of time.
This is usually my problem. I have an idea and feel it needs to be acted on right this minute! And if I dont succeed within a very short period of time I feel like a failure.
But I am learning to take little steps. And these little steps are just as important as what great big leaps can be. And by taking these little steps I will still get to the goal I am hoping for, or it may change along the way. Who knows and that is part of the fun of the journey.

The other thing that I am thankful for is a little bit of wisdom The Miner said to me the other week.
He told me that I just have to have faith in myself.

This is usually something I struggle with, especially since I tend to expect instant results, and when it doesnt happen I feel like a failure. Then become afraid to try again.

So I just need to remember that piece of wisdom and capture those moments of clear thinking and I can move forward and not feel so stuck in the rut I feel I get myself into.

Do you capture those moments of clear thinking, 
that help to give you direction.?

So for more Thankful Thursdays go over and see kate says stuff

Oh I cant take credit for the above pic. I found it on Mr Magoo's camera. I love it!

And it is a.....

I am having a baby
and it is a........
I cant decide

With one week to go till the ultrasound that allows us to find out
I don't know what to do?
I mean this decision is keeping me awake at night.
Do I find out if it is a boy or a girl
Or do I wait till it is born.

We didn't find out for the other two.
But this time I kinda feel like it would make life easier if I knew before the arrival.

I don't plan on telling the world or even the kids.
(for them I would just keep sticking to the story of "well I think I am having a......")
And I am just not one of those people who would tell all what it is and what its name is etc....
But it would seriously tidy things up in my head and that is always a step in the right direction.

The Miner isn't really interested in finding out.
But I just don't know.

And I could crochet a baby blanket in a colour other than a white based one.

Do you find out early or do you wait?
