One Kind of Relieving Stress

Like a child who cannot contain his happiness and excitement when he enters a place full of toys of his dreams, be it a playground or a toy store, I feel the same zest when I enter a bookstore or an office supplies store. Continue reading “One Kind of Relieving Stress”

Lesson from spiders

Muffet-rhyms

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a Tuffet

Eating her curds and whey;

Along came a spider,

who sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away.

 

That was a childhood nursery rhyme that until now, I know by heart. I’m not sure if it is one factor why I’m afraid of spiders. I’m not fond of insects as well. They just have too many legs! But I was able to develop this spider-like attitude, that always inspires me to  keep on going.

I found it interesting. I would like to start today even with my little proactive ways of doing things, and see how far I can go with this.

Today’s theme is Social Justice. Here goes my act that I entitled:

Don’t put blame on innocent others

Somebody took a set of machine-jammed papers from a place where I transferred them. Those papers were still supposed to be shown to the copier technician. When the owner of those papers looked for them in their original location and was a little hysterical why the papers were not there anymore, I said what I knew and volunteered to retrieve the papers. You know, I could have just kept quiet and left things as a puzzle to persons concerned.
