Commando Batties

I like to think of life as a big adventure. Like all adventures, one never knows what might happen next. Some adventures are fun and some can be quite scary! Some adventures are planned and others literally find us. Life can be breezing along nicely, then, out of the blue something unexpected happens and our world is turned upside down.

I’m sure that there are times in all our lives when we’ve felt that we are done with adventures. That maybe it’s time to hang up our hats and take a rest or even retire! We lose the lust for the adventure and start living our lives through the adventures of others. Let’s face it, that’s not really living at all!


It’s not always the outside world that brings the adventure. I have discovered that far more adventures go on in my mind (what a battle ground that can be) than I’ve ever experienced out in the world. These inner adventures have shaped who I am today, including the writing of this blog.

If you are in the midst of an unplanned adventure and feeling the pressure of it, I encourage you to embrace it (I don’t mean give it a hug and love it, lol) as it will surely strengthen you. Accept that it is an opportunity to learn more about yourself. It’s not how many times you fall down that matters, it’s how you get back up. You can lay face down and give up or you can do a commando roll and jump back to your feet.

If you’re feeling winded you can lay there for a few moments (I’ll allow it, lol) at least while you get your breath back! But beware the temptation to stay there.

So Batties, brush off the dust and let the adventures begin!!!

  1. This Battie needs to learn the art of getting up from that Commando role, and learn to embrace life again. Thank you for your insight it just might give me the strength to try x


    1. That is music to my ears, what a beautiful thing to say. I know that you will roll with it, you’re still winded at the moment xx


    1. Lol, I should hope you wouldn’t try that! It’s a psychological/mental effort not a physical roll that I’d encourage you to do 😊
