SoCS March 7/15 – Go


Badge by: Doobster @ Mindful Digressions

Today’s prompt: the word “go.”

In the small hours of the morning when this prompt arrived at my place I lay in bed thinking about what I could say about ‘go’

I have been told to go on a few occasions. I have heard the words I think I should go now. I have also been told the GET out, a variant I know but another way of exploring this word.

In so much of life I have found the need to have a go. In my teaching practice especially as a drama teacher it was often a matter of listening a student’s ideas and saying to them to give it a go and see what happens.

I think so much of life is about giving things a go. You never know where it might lead you. If you don’t you stay in your own closed world. Giving it a go is often about exploring a possibility.

Recently my artistic son was offered an opportunity to go to London to work with another artist in their chosen field of work. He accepted immediately and is in the process of getting himself organised to go and explore this wonderful opportunity, to give it a go and see where the experience takes him.

You’ll never know if you don’t give it a go!

    Very true! I enjoyed exploring the word of the day with you. Thank you Michael for the journey. 🙂

    Or “Gimme me a go.” – one kid to another when they’re sharing a pushbike, or a swing… Much better than “Gimme a break,” with an impatient roll of the eyes. Give it a go…what have you got to lose?” Michael, that’s great news about your son. I’m sure he’ll GO gangbusters in London 🙂

  3. It’s quite Australian isn’t it, to give it a go. Your artistic son will go and do well. Thanks for sharing your ‘Go’ story.

  4. The go part of life is exciting. Good for your son.

    Beautifully organized and so very true. Good luck to your son, Michael. I’ve let two of my own go onto…wonder-full ❤

  6. So great you are open to “give things a go.” I think that is a great attitude and allows others to be creative too.

  7. I love this! Yes, we need to be open to giving things a go. Lately I’ve been reminding myself about this as well, so it was great to read your take along these lines too! 🙂

    Aww, I hear the pride in a father’s voice. And it sounds like you have plenty of reason–your son is lucky to have such a dad. You bring such positivity to the word Go, Michael. Nowadays, it mostly brings one thought to mind–you know, gotta “go.” 🙂

    • Thank you Mandy. My son is lucky to pursue a career not everyone can be successful at. He is venturing into a new phase, I cross my fingers knowing he will do well. That ‘gotta go’ belongs very much to our modern life style, always a néed to be be on the go.
