Back To What It Used To Be

Somehow I seem to have got really off track with this blog.

When I started it I was going to write about anything and everything. Then gradually it evolved into a motivational and inspirational blog which I really loved but over the last few months I seem to be blogging mainly about books I have read and Filofaxes and although I enjoy writing about those two topics it's not really what I want Cupcakes and Cadenzas to be about.So, I'm going back to writing motivational, inspirational and self-development posts (with maybe the odd Filofax post thrown in).

Keep checking back and hopefully you will see Cupcakes and Cadenzas morph back into what it used to be but this time - even better!!

Hi Emily,

Although there are going to be more of the old type posts I'm sure I will still manage to throw in a few book reviews. I won't be able to stop myself.

Why I love Cupcakes and Cadenzas so much and refuse to give up on it it is that it was the very first blog that I set up and is therefore my 'baby' as far as blogs go. I have several other blogs set up for various business ventures but Cupcakes and Cadenzas is

Shake it Off Like a Donkey

Some time ago I heard this little story and it really had an impact on me so I thought I would share it with you.  "There was once a farmer who owned a prize donkey. One day the donkey fell into a very deep well next to the farmer's house and began to panic at the bottom of the well when he realised there was no way out. Because the well was so deep, the farmer could see no way to help the poor donkey and so he decided that the only course of action to take was to bury it in the well and, in that way, end its suffering and stop its crying. With a heavy heart and tears in his eyes the farmer began to shovel dirt into the well to bury the little donkey. However, the donkey had no intention of being buried and so, every time the farmer threw a shovelful of dirt into the well, the donkey shook it off his back then stepped up on to it. The farmer kept shovelling and the donkey kept shaking the dirt off. Eventually the donkey had shaken off and stepped on so much dirt th
