Tap Dancing

IMG_1765

I have a little book that I keep on the shelf. I found it one day while fossicking through an op shop and it called out to me. At the time I didn’t know why, I didn’t even read it, and several times I’ve had it in the pile to go back to charity or the annual school fair. So It makes you wonder why somethings come into your life and for what particular reason. Well today I picked it up and just let it fall open at a random page. This is the quote I have to share with you today…

When you’re skating on thin ice you might as well tap-dance. Stick your neck out, volunteer, have a go, reach out beyond your best performance and when you do, do so with style,Β Γ©lan,Β panache. You will learn more from a brilliantly executed failure than from a success planned within the dreary safety of what you already know. Winning easy is boring, pointless work.”

…. Bryce Courtenay, A Recipe for Dreaming, 1994
