If you always do what you've always done........

....You'll always get what you've always got.


I had never heard this before, and sometimes the simplest things jump out and speak to you when you are least expecting it.
I was sitting watching an episode of NCIS a few weeks ago with DD#2, if I am honest I really like Mark Harmon, and have done so since I was a young girl and he was in St Elsewhere, but enough of that, one of the cast said this phrase and it hit me hard, why? I don't know, but the more I thought about it's simplicity, the more understanding I had about the enormity of how much I could change by doing thing differently.
I suppose it is easy to get stuck in a rut with the same old routines and habits, but they say a change is as good as a rest, and I really need one of those so I will have to think about how I can do some things a little differently.

I was lucky enough to go to Edinburgh Zoo with the school yesterday to learn more about the Indian festival Dussherra, which celebrates the triumph of good over evil.
I had the job of photographer and got this great shot of a penguin. So no food pictures today, but some animals from the zoo.

I used to love him in St Elsewhere as well. Funny, I saw that same quote the other day and thought the same things as you. There is always room for change isn't there. Love your pictures of the zoo. Very nice, although zoos always make me feel a bit sad for some reason . . .

That has been my moto for many years...I heard it while on a personal development course and it changed my life...if you want something different you have to do something different otherwise you'll stay as you are...and the best bit....it works even if its only little changes you make! Go for it you won't be disapointed!!

Angela, so good to see you back posting! I love that motto. It is amazing how just a small change can make such a big difference. Great pics! Much love, Raquel XO

I've heard that before and it is so true. It sometimes isn't easy to do things differently though or try something completely new. Like you, I keep working at it though! Hope you and the family are all well!

Hah! I must be so young... I'd never even heard of Mark Harmon before NCIS :) Great pics you've taken, Angela!
