INSPIRATION RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE

Sometimes it’s nice to be reminded that inspiration can be right under our noses; this week was for me, one of those weeks where a succession individuals I may have in the past been guilty of underestimating, or just not fully appreciating opened my eyes to their true potential and intestinal fortitude.
Each in their own way stepped up, giving me cause to step back and look on with deep felt admiration, enjoying the luxury of time to fully appreciate their effort, their commitment and their courage in the face of their respective challenges.
Age was no barrier, neither economics, education or sexuality; the diversity of the challenges ranged from international competition at the highest level through securing a new job, raising the bar in community service, or trying a task for the very first time in front of onlookers without the benefit of rehearsal. All risked failure, all risked personal disappointment, all put that and ego aside to stand tall.
Some were family, some colleagues, some dear friends but all opened my eyes to the realisation that inspiration for most of us can often lay right under our nose.
Some would cheekily suggest the thing right under my nose I seem to be most conscious of is my mouth and that I spend way too much time worrying about what goes in it rather than what comes out of it, hopefully this weeks realisation will release my inner sage and adjust the balance a little.
In the spirit of the emerging enlightened, I put this breakfast right under your nose.
Open the fridge and grab whatever is under your nose
in my case it was
Bacon the ugly bits
Fresh Sage leaves
Fruit of the moment and
I presented it on dry wholegrain toast
Drizzled in real maple syrup and
Seasoned to my taste
Place your version right under the noses of your breakfast guests, step back and give them the opportunity to view you, from a whole new perspective
