Ancient Wisdom – Reblog

Sometime these days I came across some ancient wise words:

   “Plant a thought and you’ll pick an action;

   Plant an action and you’ll pick a habit;

   Plant a habit and you’ll pick a character;

   Plant a character and you’ll pick a destiny.” – Random Wise Ancient Dude or Dudette

This is exactly what I believe and what I’m trying to do. We see people all around us that are not happy with their lives, but they do want a happy life. But a happy life won’t come up out of the blue… we need to work for it. Also, what a happy life means? I’ve also noticed that a happy life for someone means a horrible life for someone else. When something is the same, what makes it different? It’s just a matter of perspective.

Practicing the ability to view different perspectives not only that gives you the ability to change the way you see your life, but it also changes the way you see other people because you’ll make a habit to see multiple perspectives about the same thing, one of them matching theirs. When you can see someone’s life through their eyes, you’ll stop judging them so harsh.

Don’t worry, sh*t will still be part of your life, but you’ll laugh at it instead of crying. That sh*t might be seen as a cake. Maybe it’s always a cake and you see it as a sh*t.

What do you choose to see? A sh*tty cake or a cake-y sh*t?

  1. It’s a genuine shame my husband isn’t a blogger nor does he give one for even reading blogs but he is the most astute, wise beyond words and can cut you hard through the heart or make the most complex, completely unfathomable scenario make complete sense in one line and a tone of voice like he’s barely aware of it. 😀

  3. Sadly, they do make poo emoji cakes, LOL!
    Funnily enough, one of the things that happens in the medical laboratory is evaluating the err – form of the specimen, because it can tell the doctor a LOT about what’s going on. Not my favorite bit of the lab, but sometimes that cakey sh*t means identifying the cause of an illness. Perspective? Not all poo is bad.
