A Golden Advice

If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity, it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, “I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.

Wisdom: Two Seeds

A lovely story with a wisdom wrapped inside I came across and wanted to share with you!

Two Seeds lay side by side in the fertile soil.

The first seed said, " I want to grow! I want to send my roots deep into the soil beneath me, and thrust my sprouts through the earth's crust above me... I want to unfurl my tender buds like banners to announce the arrival of Spring... I want to feel the warmth of the sun on my face and the blessing of the morning dew on my petals!"

And so she Grew....

The Second seed said, " Hmmmm. If I send my roots into the ground below, I don't know what I will encounter in the dark. If I push my way through the hard soil above me I may damage my delicate sprouts... what if I let my buds open and a snail tries to eat them? And if I were to open my blossoms, a small child may pull me from the ground. NO, it is much better for me to wait until it is safe".

And she waited....

A yard hen scratching around in the early spring ground for food found the waiting seed and promptly ate it.

Wisdom: Never sit around waiting for what might be better. Size the day, enjoy it and if something better come along then you cab grab it too!
