This week was #LaylaWeek as I desperately tried to achieve my last goal.
Well, that was the plan anyway, but a child, lack of guitar, school planning and a terrifying IKEA trip (!) got in the way somewhat!
With only two weeks to go in #GetGoodSummer, it was vital that I finally started with Goal 5, previously known as “The one I was too nervous to begin”.
I finally picked up my guitar on Monday and started fiddling around with the famous guitar lick, which I grew to love a long time ago. I’ve also been learning the chords to play the verse along with the singing.
Success rate? Well, I can play the solo but at about 20% of full speed! A fair bit of work to do there then. As for the chords? They’re coming quite comfortably , but I have no idea how to fit them together with the solo – usually the two are played on separate guitars!
As for the rest of my goals, three of them are ticked off. I even got the pleasure of playing my wife at Table Tennis on our holiday last week which was great fun. It was extremely close …
Finally, Philippians is three verses away from being memorised. Now I’ve got it in my head, I’ve got so many memory verses to refer to! This week’s is I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Really helpful to remember as the tentacles of back to school begin to wrap around me again. More on that in future posts!
How are your summer goals going?
