When We Fail To Plan…

We Plan To Fail.

Well good evening world and thank you for tuning in to a very late night here on planet Magnet. A great deal later than I had actually planned but there is nothing I can do about it now.

My friend Fiona from Half Baked In Paradise told me off last week for apologising for being late on parade with my blog and I promised her I would no longer do so so suck it up people.

I’m late.

Deal with it….!

So what went wrong this time?

Well nothing really and if I am honest I did not fail in any way shape of form, my plans simply changed as the day progressed. I had a little lay in this morning and was quite relaxed about life in general believing that I had more hours in my day than everyone else does, but quite apparently that just is not true :-/ although I did have a great day being busy and getting ALL of my outstanding jobs sorted and ALL to my standard of workmanship which makes me a very happy chap indeed.

However, doing this basically just vamoosed my time frame and meant that by the time I had finished doing all of the said jobs it was time to walk the dog and once I had whizzed little legs around the route, it was time for dinner and the Football (Soccer) to start.

I am also pleased to say that even this went well and my team won making me a very happy chap. Even that fact that a friend came round to visit during the game didn’t matter because she came bearing my Christmas gift… Well I couldn’t have turned her away once I found out there was something in it for me!!

So, the football finished and I found I had to make my way to the office for another late night post about nothing in particular at all. So the only thing I feel I need to say is that I am in a great mood and firmly believe it is all because I was able to help out a friend, get done what I wanted to and by doing so, make her smile which filled my heart with warmth.

When I compare this action to my previous person of several years ago, I know I would have been willing to do the hours but it would not have been for someone else’s pleasure but simply for my own reward. Today see’s me actually reaping the simple reward of someone else’s appreciation and that makes me more than happy.

It also makes me realise that if this old leopard can change his spots and do good without fiscal reward then absolutely anyone can do it, so please get into the spirit of Christmas, give of yourself and help others out.

Share the love.

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge.

      Thank you Kat, you are a super dooper kind lady for saying this things.
      I love the friends I have made on WordPress. No one judges and no one lies. Honesty is paramount to me and encouragement from others can only help us through the day.
      I promise I will get to the quotes but time is fleeting. Hopefully between the big day and New Years, I shall have some time for a good in-depth catch up of everything I am attempting!

    You’re an inspiration! I’m so glad you’re in the right mental mindset to help others, it is rewarding to please others for the sake of nothing other than to make them smile. Finding that mindset can be difficult in the daily hub-bub of demanding tasks and to-do lists but it makes it that much more rewarding, no? My love to you, Cameron! Hope your holidays are filled with blessings and joy!

    I am so excited for you. You sound like you have transitioned into becoming the person you have always wanted to be. As you know, this doesn’t mean that life won’t create some challenges, however, the methods used to deal with them will likely be healthier and make overcoming the obstacles more satisfying. 2016 has a lot of wonderful things in store for you, my friend!
