When I was young (hehehehehe I really started the post sounding ancient!)
Yeah when I was young and the world was fresh and innocent, my father used to cut out articles from newspapers and magazines. I used to watch him enviously – did so want to lay my hands on that pair of scissors and cut out paper from every where. Mom never scolded him too! So unfair
Once I asked him why he did it.
He would neatly stack the cutting in a manilla envelope and put it in a briefcase. He smiled “When I retire, I am going to stick them into a file. Just something I would like to read again”
I read those articles many times as I grew older. They were all about self improvement.
It got me into a habit of reading quotations etc. on the subject.
They are over rated.
No one theory can solve myriad problems that ail humanity. Plus solutions, to work have to come from inside, not from books.
I have two of those self help calendars on my desk at office. Yeah, I am my Papa’s little girl and have inherited the habit somewhat! They dish out self help quotes every day
Today’s thoughts :
One says “Dont pass up the true riches of life for mere wordly gain. Why work only to exist when you can live to love and be loved”
Hmmmmm, I think I’ll pass this one. It sounds impractical and a bit too “evolved” for my baser brain to comprehend!
The other one dazzled me with its sheer brilliance
“Knowing is not enough, we must apply
Willing is not enough, we must do!”
Now I can comprehend that.
Therefore, even though I had no subject for a blog post, I followed that advice and wrote one!
Happy day to you!
