On this international day of peace the greatest gift we have to give is being at peace with ourselves – within. It is only then we are truly able to work at peace with others – without. This reminds me of the 5 life lessons by Dr Seuss, that I saw recently, and have re-posted below for your pleasure. Enjoy!
Lesson 1 – Don’t attempt to do things when you are tired as it isn’t really effective
Lesson 2 – Having enough rest is important- being rested is a 2012 goal.
Now this knob is a trashy gold color left over from the previous owners of my house! Great, I thought! I’ll just replace the knob with a nice stainless steel one.
Next day off I go to the home improvement store, Home Depot. 8.94 dollars later and 30 minutes later I am back home and proud owner of a nice stainless steel door knob. I put it in and it won’t turn! It just won’t!!! GRRRR!!!!
Lesson 3 – Life has many bumps on the road to your destinations.
So, I removed the new door knob and put it back sequentially, checking at every step. Now I noticed that the knob mechanism was catching as the previous owner had not done a good job punching a hole in the door. A little elbow grease with a tool or two and problem solved. Finally new door knob back in door and working perfectly. Happy housemate and happy home owner.
Lesson 4 – Don’t give up when your life trip gets rough. Have confidence, and apply one self. It will work out.
