Stop talking about it, just go do it!


yes, we must do this one day …….” and then we don’t! We’re all guilty of it aren’t we?

For years Chris and I have discussed travelling around the coast of Scotland and we’re just back from a fantastic holiday where we saw some wonderful scenery. And we did the Edinburgh Tattoo on the way there! Yet another ……. “we must do this one day…….”

I’ve even decided that looking at this wonderful scenery is a form of medicine and a way to be inspired to do more. Admittedly we were motivated by the recent declaration of the new “North Coast 500” campaign which fortunately and timely sparked us into gear.

As a patient with incurable cancer, life can be tough on the body and mind. However, I’ve no intention of laying back waiting to shuffle off this mortal coil. As far as I’m concerned that just leads to lethargy and all that goes with it.

Stop talking about it, just go do it!

I don’t do poetry but I thought this quite apt as I stood by a stone monument in the Cairngorms engraved with this on four sides.  The orange structures in the picture are places to sit and ‘behold’

Take a moment to behold

As still skies or storms unfold

In sun, rain, sleet or snow

Warm your soul before you go

Cairngorms viewing point


Thanks for listening

    So true, Ronnie! Live life to the fullest while we can is my motto.

    True words, Ronny. If cancer teaches us anything it’s that tomorrow isn’t guaranteed and if you want to do something, you’ve got to do it, now. Glad you enjoyed your holiday.

    Great trip Ronny and Chris. Looks fabulous. My wife Jenny was diagnosed with NETs 13 years ago and for the last 7yrs we have headed to Morocco in our campervan for a couple of months each winter. We take the risk with insurance. Plan to be back there this next Feb. The North Coast 500 is on my bucket list for a bike ride.

      great stuff. Saw lots of bikers (pedal and motor!). The pedal guys looked like they were working hard!
