We all commit mistakes because nobody is perfect. Every time we do wrong to others, or have done things incorrectly, we normally feel guilty, embarrassed, and sorry and would even feel regretful. Yet think about it, what’s done is done, and you could not turn back time to do it differently or not do it at all. It was meant to happen and you no longer have any piece of control over it. You do not have to live with it for the rest of your life, do you?
Worrying too much for a shortcoming is pointless because it does not amend the situation whatsoever. You are only drenching yourself with useless anxiety and stress. Since the damage or inconvenience has been done, the viable things you can do really is to calm down, fix what could possibly be made to it, and if it concerns emotional distress to someone, admit and apologise before the situation gets awful.

Wenlock to represent the Olympics 
and Mandeville for Paralympics

Do you wonder who they are? They are just the official mascots of the London 2012 Olympiad and Paralympics, and soon they will conquer the hearts of every spectator in the world’s greatest sporting spectacle. Yet, what’s in the name?

When the two mascots were unveiled two years ago, they received various reactions from the public and critics. Some said that the design was the least being expected to be chosen since there were certainly numerous designs that could be readily associated with the host city London, like Big Ben mascot or perhaps George the Lion mascot. But, the Olympics organizers were too convinced to defend that Wenlock and Mandeville are not just ordinary mascots of the Olympics. They have rich historical significance to both the Olympics and Paralympics and the design was especially created to inspire children. Sebastian Coe, the chairman of the London organizing committee said that the design could easily connect to young people with sport and could proudly tell the story of England’s Olympic and Paralympic history.

I am candidly captivated by the tranquility of England’s Lake District. Considered as the country’s National Park, it prides its gorgeous lakes including the magnificent Windemere, the amazing Coniston waters, the healthy Ambleside, and the scenic lakeland of Derwentwater, amongst others. Century old castles stand like kings on mountain summits and proclaim the rich history and cultural richness of Lake District. I could only wish for more opportunities of future courtship in these breathtaking landscapes and natural paradise, laying perfectly under a truly fantastic summer sunshine.
