We are already into the month of June. The first half of 2016 seems to have flown past. Where did those 180 odd days vanish?
You may wonder why I’m rambling on thus. This is because, earlier today, I found The Book.
Yes, The Book.
The Book is a small palm sized notebook, with creamy white pages, and a lovely quotation on its front cover.

I acquired The Book in the last week of 2015, with great ideas and ideals.
Drawing inspiration from a movie, I named it The Book of Possibilities, aka The Book.
The Book would catapult me into 2016 with clear-cut goals; long term, medium term and short term plans clearly stated and defined.
It would be my partner, and inject me with bursts of optimism and energy, when I went off track. It would be so many things. The Book, my book.
However, before I inscribed my 365 day future on the creamy white pages, I vowed to myself that I would only ever put down things that I would surely endeavour to accomplish – with this book, I would walk the talk.
No making larger than life plans (read lose 15 kg in a year, or workout everyday, or don’t shop etc).
The diaries from years before had been filled with my plans, big plans…that remained trapped in the pages of those diaries, never having seen the light of day.
So for 2016, I picked up a small, compact book, The Book. No fancy big diaries for me.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, The Book surfaced this afternoon, when I rummaged through my papers for a document that I needed.
I sighed. The Book’s empty pages stared blankly at me.
I have not quite decided on what I want to accomplish. Hmmmm….we have another 180 days to go…
