Living Life Today – Time and true friends are both precious


The Living Life Today series provides a platform to think about your Life as it is Now, enjoy what you have, review and create an even better future for tomorrow”….. Short, sharp & easily digestible.

I’ve just returned from spending 3 days in Sydney. My wife and I caught up with old friends and relatives from our extended families, most of whom we hadn’t seen for about 3 years….some, a lot longer than that.

Talk invariably got to our children, how old they now were, what they were doing etc, Many of us are in our fifties (it was a friend’s 50th birthday bash that had us going there in the first place) and the realisation that we and our children are ‘moving on’ in Life so quickly made us realise that we need to see each other on a much more regular basis.

Apart from drinking too many Corona’s, the weekend went great. My brothers & sisters-in-law are counted as my friends as well as the friendships that have been built up over the past 35 years with others who we saw on the weekend.

This weekend re – affirmed to me this Life lesson (and it may do for you)…..

True Friendship is a powerful bond & is prescious and “time” can be a powerful enemy if not used wisely… slips away…..don’t let your friendships do the same.

Be good to yourselves

Where’s the “Cash”?

Hello fellow Life lovers,

So, where is the “cash” in your Life?

Do you have it or are you still seeking it?…..What is “the cash” to you?

A Super Yacht, sports car, mansion house, Holiday home on a tropical island, gold bullion, 10 million blue chip shares/stock? OR maybe

#…….a beautiful smile, a wink of encouragement, a pat on the back or a handshake for support. A magnificent sunrise or breathtaking sunset. A flower opening to full bloom, a baby laughing, a warm embrace from a loved one, a sincere “Thank you”.

All of these # make me feel warm inside…..these are “cash in the Bank” moments for me (please note, I don’t have any of the former but hey, they would be nice)

However I still need cold hard cash, my everyday walk around currency. “Survival food” in the jungle of Life. So where is it?

Is it in your day “job”, writing blog posts, having a bet on the horses, gambling on the internet, hustling at pool at the corner bar. Is your “boss” the cash?, winning the Lottery, selling your unwanted ‘things’?

OR is it in your Network, your friends, your loved ones?

When you work out what you value, what Life means to you, you immediately become richer, choices become clearer. And when you do, I believe that the cash ( & more of it) is drawn to you.

Truth be known, the “cash” is in your hands. You are the cash, you are a walking, negotiable currency able to be friended, be loved & able to love & to give your friendship. Cash changes hands every day. Some stays in the till, some gets circulated, some gets stashed away (for a rainy day).

Circulate the cash my friends. It’s great for the human economy….. keep circulating, keep loving because a ‘rainy day’ may never come.

be good to yourselves
