When you have no strength, seek out a story of someone else's strength.

When you have no energy, no enthusiasm, no motivation, borrow someone else's energy, enthusiasm and motivation.

When you have reached the end of your patience, challenge yourself to find one little scrap more. It's more than you thought you were able to find and yet you will find it.

When you believe you are never going to break out of whichever cycle you are in, remind yourself you have before and you will again, only this time more so, because you know more.

When you are having the day that we all know, the one you want to wipe away, take encouragement from anything...and build only with the smallest bricks.

Last Friday a huge, glossy, black crow flew in as I walked along the pavement. He stopped on top of a bin, beside and close to me, cawed loudly whilst eye-balling me, at the very same time as I was doubting myself. I took it as a telling off and was glad to find a new, very time-savvy friend :-)

Build only with the smallest bricks.
Love yourself a little more than you did yesterday.
I know that's hard but easy things don't bring the biggest rewards.
Build only with the smallest bricks.

Love from

The room above the garage.
