A couple of years ago when I was travelling around
Scotland, my friends and I found ourselves searching for
a place to have lunch. It was late in the afternoon and
freezing cold. All we wanted was a bowl of hot soup
and some crusty bread. We found a found a cosy cafe
ourselves down. When we asked what the Soup of the
Day was, our waitress replied that the soup had finished.
Our faces dropped. She saw our reaction and offered us
tomorrow's soup instead. Tomorrow's soup was Carrot
and Coriander and it was delicious.
When I started Today was Fun it was my misson to
share some fun and wisdom with the world. Over the last
two years we've done exactly that. (If you haven't heard
about our Tea and Philosophy then there's a link on the
right just for you). As we continually have more
ideas than there's time to develop them into products I
thought we'd make a big pot of soup. Each month we'll
throw in all our ideas and our friends ideas too. Seasoned
with a little wisdom it should be tasty. We hope you
enjoy Tomorrow's Soup and share it with everyone you
know. Happy slurping. Sharyn
|Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. Thoreau
Thoreau was a guy who loved living in the wilderness and
had some fairly unique ideas on life. We're not too sure
how he spent his January.
We think he probably sat down with one of his closest
philosopher mates, threw another log on the fire,
sharpened his pencil and mapped out the direction he
was going to take for the next twelve months.
January is definitely the month to be inspired, wipe the
slate clean and think about the possibilities of the
coming year. It's time to get creative, and dream; this is
what we recommend you do.
- Chose someone who believes in you
and who you believe in.
- Agree on a inspired place and make a
date to meet up-somewhere you can sit all afternoon and
drink pots of tea is ideal.
- Take a pen and lots of note paper.
- At the top of the first page note
the location and date.
- Write down your friend's wildest
dreams and silliest imaginings. Record all their ramblings
in as much detail as possible. Don't forget to note what
kind of roses are growing on the wall of the villa or
exactly what the profit share is going to be for the next
- When they are done, hand over the
pen and let them do the same for you.
- Take your dreams and store them in a
safe place for 12 months.
The best part of this exercise comes in 12 months time
when you make a follow up date. You repeat steps 2-7
only resorting to step one if your chosen friend was
successful in all their plans and hasn't written since.
Before you begin, take out your goals from the previous
year and see just how many things you can tick off the
list. You will also be amazed at how many you changed
your mind on.Be gentle on yourself, besides Lear jets are
so last year darling. If there
are things on your list that you are still keen on but
didn't manage to make them happen then simply roll them
over to your 2005 list.

|Today's all we've got, and that's a lot.
Yes, that's right. Today is all we've actually got, or to
be more precise, this moment. So why not do something
today that will make a positive difference in the world?
Here's one idea, we'd love to hear your ideas too.
Arrange a time to do something with a child which will
create a positive memory and hopefully a lasting
impression on their lives - such as teaching them
something simple or doing a new activity. I still
remember the person who taught me to sew.
