A triumph of enthusiasm

Was just chatting with my beautiful friend Mary (who shared her very goose-bump-inspiring dream in the vlog comments, of having a one-stop shared arts space…scrumdiddlyumptious!) and in the midst of our catch-up she posted me this:

“Every memorable act in the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles.”
— Og Mandion

In the name of enthusiasm – sprinkled with the very wonderful encouragement and feedback I’ve had on the whole v-logging thang – I’m going to be making it a regular occurence round these parts for SHIZZ! I’m actually toying with the idea of setting up a portion of my new studio (yes, yes! I have a studio, can you BELIEVE IT?!!!! More on that to come, I think I’ll post some photos of it pretty soon) as a bit of a makeshift TV set. We shall see.

I feel like I’m finally emerging from the foggy haze that has been the start of this year. Thank heavens. We really have had one trauma after another. And now I’m finally ready to start getting back on the damn horse and kicking its ass. (Disclaimer: metaphor only. No horses or asses were harmed in the typing of this blog entry).

The point is, I’m ready to make some plans.

PS. I now have a facebook fan page! Please join me in my quest for inflating my ego world domination if you please. There’s a link on the right sidebar if you scroll down a wee bit! Would love to have you. x

      Erin! So wonderful to meet you! Thank you so much for your delightful compliment, I’m very much looking forward to getting to know you better also. This course has already blown my mind – I was expecting to be inspired, etc. etc. by Kelly, but the thought of getting so much from all these amazing connections with such an incredible group of people has surprised me in the very best way. x

    I only found you less than two weeks ago and I can see a jump in your enthusiasm in that time. I did go back and read about the start of your year – gee you are in line for really good luck for the rest of this year!!!!
    I shall pop over and find you on facebook, I can’t believe you have more than 60 people following you there already. World domination is in your sights!
