My favourite quote by Jim, “Blogging isn’t who we are its just a thing that we do.”
This quote reminds me of a post I wrote on willpower and how it needs to be trained; it was titled “Willpower is like a muscle”. Just in case you are wondering, I have been procrastinating the past couple of weeks and no longer keep a weekly To Do list. Posting daily doesn’t count because I am having too much fun writing daily posts. I only procrastinate on stuff, I do not look forward to doing. But even before I read this quote today, I was going to do back being disciplined and start tracking my To Dos diligently again. Therefore it was kind of like a confirmation when I read this quote today and I wanted to share it with you too. 🙂
You can run but I’ll catch you. Getting goosebumps looking into the leopard’s eyes.
“Death From Above” – Tshukudu Game Reserve, South Africa – Graham King – Featured Photographer
Okay, maybe I am a bit dramatic with the title, but I think it is fitting when you have a 100 pound leopard over your head. You can only imagine what this leopard sees and that is the fun of it. Gazelle? Zebra? One of Graham’s friends? No matter who is on the lunch menu, the beauty and agility of this big cat is well represented in Graham’s photograph. So please read the story below then check out the rest of Graham’s stunning portfolio at:
Take it away Graham:
The shot was taken back in 2007. I went on a two week photographic safari to The Kruger and then onto Tshukudu Game Reserve on the edge of it. In the reserve you are able to get a bit closer to the animals…

Thanks to Warriors and Goddesses for nominating me! 🙂
Very true! When I was young I remember getting impatient with my granny because of some stuff she did. I am sure she got yelled at a few times from her children too. But as I grew older I realised that she didn’t do it just to spite me or others. She was growing old and became forgetful and sloppy because she couldn’t see that well anymore. It is important to keep in mind that the handicaps of age would catch up with us someday. No matter how much exercise we do or healthy food we eat. When that time comes, we would be grateful to our loved ones for being understanding. We can ensure this behaviour by being role models. The way we take care of our elderly, would show our children how they should treat us when we grow old. As it says in Matthew 7:12, “Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Simple law and still holds true today.
When I grow old, I hope you understand and have patience with me.
In case, i break a plate, or spill soup on the table because I’m losing my eye sight.
I hope you don’t yell at me.
Older people are sensitive , always having self-pity when you yell.
When my hearing gets worse and I can’t hear, what you’re saying.
I hope you don’t call me, “Deaf.”
Please repeat what you said, or write it down.
I’m sorry, my child.
I’m getting older.
When my knees get weaker, I hope you have the patience to help me get up.
Like how I used to help you while you were little, learning to walk.
Please bear with me.
When I keep repeating myself like a broken record,
I hope you just keep listening to me.
Please don’t make fun of me or, get sick of listening to me.
