Thought for the Day

Our Thought for the Day

Here is our thought for the day from GlenMyu Estate Hotel, Beragala, Haputale, Sri Lanka.

As I wander around the beautiful 5 acre Estate in the Sri Lankan Hill Country my mind wanders. It’s amazing what comes to mind when roaming around the land with 7 dogs in tow.

What comes into my mind and inspires my thought for the day.

Surrounded by nature and a sea of green.

Birdsong providing the background music.

It’s easy to be inspired into thinking different thoughts whilst enjoying this little piece of paradise.

My intention with my "Thought for the Day"

Often when walking around memories or ideas come into my mind.

I plan to regularly share my thoughts with you the reader.

However, I can’t promise to share them every day as some many not be inspiring or interesting.

Please accept them as they are.

Thought for the Day - How wrong I was!

I didn’t really want a cow.

My wife wanted a cow.

As usual, my wife gets her own way.

Now we have a cow!

Maali, the co, really adds to our beautiful landscape at GlenMyu Estate.

Here is a picture of her adding to the scenery and ambiance of the land.



She doesn’t just add to the ambience of the estate. Maali is an important addition to the aim to produce organic food. A cow produces cow dung and urine which is used towards our composting. It provides valuable additional goodness that helps the plants balanced homemade natural fertiliser.

My thought for the day

It’s okay to be wrong.

I have read so many books and been in business training courses where they recommend you to set a goal. However it is okay to adjust that goal and reset it.


I guess that’s what happened when we got the cow.
