So at the moment something big is happening in our lives that relies on us trusting someone we barely met to do something we hardly understand, if it works then we stand to benefit hugely from it, sound cryptic? thats because it is.. which begs the question can you get something for nothing? I cant go into detail of the above situation but it requires us tohave faith in someone to do something apparantly selfless and incredibly generous… do people like this exist and if they do why am I so cynical of their existance? and if they dont why am I so easily suckered in?
I’m generally from the team of believing that nothing comes for free, if its too good to be true then it probably is… but do genuine opportunites exist to gain from doing very little? unless you’re a bank of course? I’m struggling with it as I do feel that fate does occasionally lend a hand to help out, there have been many situations in my life where I have felt ‘aided, supported’ through a rough time or nudged in the right direction – some would call it religion I wouldnt personally but I do believe in karma.. the what goes around comes around aspect of life, so in all I do I try to do the ‘right’ thing, hurt no-one, support where I can, be kind and thoughtful, random acts of kindess being a particular favourite… so could this just be good karma coming back to me. I’m not perfect, a long way from it but I dont think I have ever in my life gone out to intentionally hurt anyone or cause harm.
So there it is a philosophical question or two, I’ll let you know if this does happen for me or if I was just suckered in, it wouldnt be the first time I have believed the best in someone and been let down, but the indicators do look pretty good for this one and this person so we shall see, but through this process its made me ask some questions of myself and others.
On a light brighter note I am almost finished with my birth sampler embroidery that I started when I was 7 months pregnant, this one has taken me FAR longer than the others I have done but with 3 children in tow now, moments for myself are few and far between, I will just be happy if its finished by the time she is 1. I took more photos yesterday that you can see below, nothing phenomenal but all rewarding in their own way.
The blue sky on I have named ‘lucky buggers’ as that was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. We are in holiday booking mode at the moment probably due to the cold snowy snap we that we are in the midst of.. Florida and Majorca are the top contenders at the moment – I think Majorca is looking favourite finished off with an adult only trip to New York in November all being well
