Just woke up from a nap

…and this idea popped into my head:

We tend to take our own thoughts and feelings too seriously, and those of others not seriously enough.

I sent it to a friend and she said, “I don’t think so.” Isn’t that funny? Here I am thinking that I’ve come up with an idea that’ll change my life, and she thinks it’s not even true. It proves the idea right.

I know it’s certainly true for me. I can look at almost every personal relationship in my life and say for sure that I could do better in each of them. I feel like I want to set a timer for every two hours and remember that thought every time it rings until the idea and I have become one.

  1. the idea and you become one?

    どういう意味かってこと? It means I want the idea to become second nature.

    僕のブロックの読者たちの中、日本語の勉強をしている人が多い。スミヨさんはせっかく日本人だから、本物の日本語でも書いていいですよ。(^^)v

  2. ありがとうございます。
    では日本語で書かせてもらいますね。
    昨日、初めてこのブログを見ました。
    このブログは楽しいですね。(英語なので、いまいち理解に苦しみますが。)
    ここで、私達が感じている事や、思っている事を素直に話しながら、少しでも、幸せな時間が持てる事は素晴らしいですね。
    一度しかない人生、明るく楽しく、前向きに過ごしましょう。
    どんな事があっても、前向きに考える事の出来る人が、幸せな人だ、と私は思いますから。
    後、健康第一。
