Don't worry, keep busy
Storytime with my four year old was coming to an end, but luckily Jago knows exactly how to play his old man. 'Can we have your favourite?' and what's that? Jago told me it's, 'The Lion who wanted to Love'. Always brings a tear to my eye when reading the last couple of pages when his Mum speaks in her humblest tone 'I was wrong, now I see love can bring us together...'
OK, very soppy, and Leo is a bit of a role model for loving and all that, following his instinct, which wasn't the same as most lions. But for this blog, and for me right now, what is more important was that he just got on and did what he thought was best.
When everything seems so bleak, it's easy to fall into trap of 'self-preservation', following what you think will earn money, or please those around you. Maybe in six months I'll be regretting lack of fore-thought. Is it more important to do what you think is right? Or am I just going to drift into poverty? Who knows. I deal with that tomorrow.
