Sunday's Best

Though I'm an avid promoter of academia and higher education, I would have to admit that the best lessons in life are not learned in school.

A few things that I picked up today:

- Being a family is more than sharing the same DNA with each other. It’s about working in a team.

- Friendships and relationships aren’t necessarily very different. Both require the same amount of effort to keep maintained… and both ought to be equally treated in terms of importance.

- It just takes one special someone to make you laugh and it’ll do a whole world of difference to your day.

- Saying "please" can sometimes go a long way without you realizing it. It makes one wonder how such a simple and effortless word could be so widely absent in life.

- Throw away your pride and always mind your position.

- Even though the breakthrough of mobile phones and the Internet has got to be the best thing since the invention of Tim Tams, I’ve got to admit that it has ruined quite a few things for us… like uninterrupted conversations, luxurious lounging times, etc. Instead of making our lives easier and things more convenient, it just gives us more excuse to work a little bit more because technology would deliver us more vacancies in our time.

- Organic and non-organic lettuce actually taste the same.

- You never know when you’ll get your second wind so hold that coffee.


- Courage and confidence are always good to possess but too much of those would just lead you to trouble. Moderation is always key. Never swallow more than what you can chew (regardless of precedent).

- It’s best to usually work in worst case scenarios. Although hoping for the best doesn't hurt.

- Always under-promise and over-deliver.

It was indeed a long Sunday today... it was all good though.

Cheers! (yes, that would be me in the wake of a VERY early morning hang-over)

~ These two nuggets are especially close to my heart. :D

Have a good week!

I for one cannot distinguish between organic and inorganic lettuce. I always chalked that up as my own bad taste.

"Always under-promise and over-deliver."

Work has taught me to pad my schedule obscenely and not to overdeliver. Sigh.

I always enjoy how succinctly you put your "lessons learned". I always nod my head, but I couldn't have put it as well as you do.
Great picture. You don't LOOK hungover. LOL.

You look on top form Princess. I like your dictum of planning for the worst but hoping for the best....I should start doing that instead of planning for the best then having to do damage repair when it all goes haywire..
