reflectionsThe beautiful Sash over at ‘Inked In Colour‘ published a cracker of a post this week about taking stock of the here and now. She was inspired by a post written by Pip over at ‘Meet Me At MikesI immediately loved the idea. As someone who sometimes struggles to exist in the ‘here and now’ sitting back and actually examining what’s happening in life right this very second, doesn’t always come naturally. I have a tendency to look forward; to next week, next month or the next exciting thing on the radar and while it’s probably better than looking back, it means that the present sometimes gets pushed aside and not appreciated.

In an effort to acknowledge what’s happening in our lives today, November 15th 2013, I thought I’d follow the lead set by Sash and Pip and do my own little stock take…
