3 years ago, for day 79 by Fred Rivett

Last night I watched a RomCom for the first time in years. A female friend of mine reco'd it, and I felt up for a change. And you know what? It was alright. Don't get me wrong, it was far from a masterpiece. It was simply a feel good film...

Routine is important. For the past couple months I've not had much of one. Being in between jobs has meant I've had a lot of time to do what I want. But I've not had much brain space. My mind's been taken up with working out what I'm doing with...

No person is an island. None of us are meant to walk alone. I've been thinking back on my motives moving back to London recently, and it all comes down to community and home. They say that home is where the heart is, and my heart has been in London...

To know and be known

3 years ago, for day 76 by Fred Rivett

What is it that we're seeking? Deep down, what motivates us in life? What's the driving force behind our actions? There's many answers you could give to this, but one I think embedded deeply in us, is to have relationship. To know, and to be known. Today's culture is driven...

Waking up to see the news of the terror attacks in New Zealand, and what can you say? What can you do with news like that? Words fall short at times like this. But words are what I write every day, so words will be written. I've so many friends...

Just In Time

3 years ago, for day 73 by Fred Rivett

I learn best by doing, and I do best when I have a goal in mind. I'm not a good theoretical learner. Not great at sitting in class and learning from lecturers. And definitely not a natural at learning from text books. It might be just that I'm not motivated...

The test of a habit

3 years ago, for day 72 by Fred Rivett

Today's the first morning I've got to try and fit a few things in. I've got to write these 300 words. I've got to hit the gym. Then I've got to get to work. Picking up new habits takes time. They say somewhere around 30 days. Both my writing habit...

Today's a new day, with new experiences, challenges and opportunities. That's true every day. But especially today. For today I'm starting a new job. It's always a mixture of excitement, relief and nerves. Excited and relieved to finally get going, and nervous to live up to the expectations others have...

It's easy to say no to things that we want. There are always reasons why something is a bad idea. Always things that can go wrong. Always obstacles in the way from idea to fruition. Reason never lacks reasons to say no. Ok, so maybe it's not easy to say...

I guess

3 years ago, for day 64 by Fred Rivett

Getting better at taking one step at a time. That's what I'm trying to do, at least. I'm a strange character. In some ways I'm able to ignore things that most folks would spend quite a bit of mental energy on. But in other ways, I can think deeply about...
