It is widely understood that there is no such thing as an overnight success.
There is no such thing as a fairy godmother or a magic wand… There is also no such thing as luck… although many like to use that as an excuse as to why they are where they are.
Personally, I believe you make your own luck by the choices you make, the decisions you stand by and the brand, the energy that you put out….
Although today, the penny dropped.
The penny dropped, that there may just be a formula.
Based on some training I attended, some further research and a conversation, a brainstorm with a friend this morning over a herbal tea… there may well be a formula.
It isn’t a secret formula… but as I said, the penny just dropped. For me anyway.
And now I can’t decide whether to blog about it… or whether I just need to mull it over a bit more…
But this is where I have got to…
If (M + V) + (H + E) = F
Then F = P + A
Therefore (P + A ) + (2T + C)= S….
It’s actually quite simple.
In other news, I had a crash course in negotiation this morning. Willy refused to eat breakfast, do his homework, to get dressed, to put on his shoes, to go to school.. He called me ‘Dirk’… and screamed and shouted and slammed doors.
There are some moments, I think that I am not cut out for this mothering thing… and that I want to cry and scream back… and go back to bed.
But when the peace descends and our face off has run its course, snuggled in the kitchen chair, together, listening to him read his school book … I remember that there is no better job than that of being a parent.
