Mon 22nd June - Sultry Sunset & Self Belief!

I hope everything is well with you.
Here's a picture I took the other day, I hopped in the car, and 30 minutes later was watching the sun go down over the sea.

It was lovely warm evening, and as the sun dipped below the horizon, it was nice and quiet except for the waves lapping.
Aah, just like the opening sequence of 'Jaws'.

Only without the massive young-naked-woman-eating shark.
Or more importantly, without the naked young woman...

Anyway the reason I posted it, was because it was an evening that took a deal of stress away from me, and the picture is a reminder of that feeling. That technique of using pictures is dismissed and underused.
The thought of a nice image works well to get rid of moments of stress, but seeing the actual picture itself works even better - any pics you could do with rooting out for a feelgood burst?

Wimbledon started today, with the usual raft of self improvement stories - here's a quick summary...

Andy Murray, the great British hope, having his chances boosted by Rafael Nadal withdrawing. Outside Murray's control, but he's ready to pounce on the opportunity.

Speaking of Nadal, unlucky for him to attain his goal last year, and not be able to defend.

On the womens side, 15 yr old Brit Laura Robson. Having won the girls title last year, she shows a self belief I never had at that age.
At that age it is either natural, and/or as a result of her upbringing. She may well have to come back from knocks in the future, but at present does not have to force herself to believe in her ability.

Many people are not like that, and have to work hard to believe they can achieve. It's well worth the mental effort though, because once you get there it can unleash wonderous things.

There's a load of Russian women at the top that are not household names. Some people say it's boring - what rubbish! There is nothing to stop anyone else putting in the work, and I mean years of work! So good luck to those that have done.

Ok, that's it for now - if I promised not to write about Wimbledon again this year, I would be lying - let's wait and see...!

'Til Next Time,
