Please don’t feed the fears …..

In an interview with the magazine Vanity Fair, David Bowie cited one of his favourite quotes – “Most people die when they’re 25 but don’t get buried until they’re 75”, Benjamin Franklin – when explaining why everything you do that isn’t you is a mistake.

When asked his definition of misery, Bowie replied, “Living in fear of expressing myself and doing what I was born to do, which like all other human beings is to be creative and to create.”

Bowie did things which didn’t necessarily add years to his life, but which did add a huge amount of life to his years.

You can only control two things in life, your attitude and your actions.

May I suggest that this year you do more of what makes you smile …… let your smile change the world, but don’t let the world change your smile.

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

When he found out that he was going to inherit a fortune from his dying father, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his wealth.

One day, at the gym, Dan spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.

“I may look like just an ordinary guy,” he said to her, “But within the next few months my father will die and I will inherit £200 million”. “I’ve got to go now,” replied the woman, “But give me your phone number and I’ll call you.”

To his surprise, a month later the woman called and said, “Congratulations Dan. I’m your new stepmother.”
