Whatever You Do, Do It Well

Let's face facts, a blogger ne'er shall I be.
A journalist, perhaps. A writer, possibly.
But despite all my best intentions I sadly do not have the time (or the inclination) to post daily, sometimes thrice daily like the keener variety of bloggerists out there.

("Stop trying to make 'Fetch' happen, its not going to happen!" Shut up, Regina)

Anyway anyway anyway, I've spent more time thinking about what I would write recently if I only had the time, was near a computer, wasn't suffering from a crippling hangover that makes even the short journey from ones bed to the life saving oasis that is Robinson's Orange Squash in the kitchen below a mammoth task, let alone turning on a laptop and actually using ones brain power to COMPOSE A WHOLE POST etcc. 

Jack of all trades, Master of none.
That's me, I suppose. Formally a derogatory term (You may have heard it worded as 'Jack of all trades, Master of Fuck All' by those more crude of tongue than me) I'm now reinstating it as a badge of honor. So I may never win a gold in the 400m, I'll never sing during half time at the superbowl and I may never go into space but it's not about being the best of the best, if you can acknowledge what you are good at and use it to your advantage, you're still winning.

I've done a lot of things and haven't failed miserably at all of them (Although I do remember a certain PE teacher getting horribly frustrated with me because, although I was quite nippy in the sprint stakes, she could not, for love nor money, teach me to do the hurdles correctly. I think it was my legs way of protesting against the inhumanity of it all. Horses are meant to jump fences, not humans) hashtag digression...

The point is, although I don't blog everyday of the week it doesn't mean my writing isn't as good as someone who does. It doesn't mean that because I don't make money from it won't help me in the future or give me some good experience...

I had a tea break then, mid post, and just saw a 6 year old diving from a 10ft high board. Now that is definitely something that I will NEVER ever be able to do.

So I've kinda lost my train of thought and the reason for this sum, celebrate all those talents you do have, even if you're not the best of the best doesn't mean you're not good at it.

I've been drinking a lot of herbal tea of late. Those ones that come with little inspiring quotes attached to the teabag...I'll switch back to coffee and have a vacuous fashion post for you next week :)
