Thanks for popping in. Friday’s Blog a private peek, remember? Thought I’d dig a little deeper this afternoon, and take a closer look at those word stickers of mine. There’s a lot more to them than meets the eye.
The very first saying at the very top of the first sheet is ONE DAY AT A TIME. I must say that to myself at least a dozen times a day… It’s the only way forward right now, don’t you agree?
The next sticker on the same page is SEEK SWEETNESS AND WISDOM. Well, now there’s a powerful and positive intention! Probably why I don’t follow the news anymore ; no sweetness or wisdom there! All I see is corruption and bull. And it’s getting worse.
The stickers speak my language – probably because I composed them!
WE HAVE GOOD DAYS AND GROWING DAYS….
On the third line is the one. The one which calls to me more and more with each passing day:
TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE.
But what does that phrase mean to you? It can mean several things to me. Firstly, it signifies that I have to be honest and speak my truth. It also means that I should never tire of doing the right thing. But to me it also means that if I am straight and I always do as I should, then I will find myself easier to handle. And since I live with myself, I think that’s important.
Conversely, if I lied and connived my way through life, I dare say I would find it harder to live with myself – provided I have scruples and some kind of moral compass of course.
You see, I can’t control anybody else, and I don’t intend to try, or even waste precious energy getting frustrated at corrupt politicians and the like. What for? Do you think they give a damn what I think? Or YOU think? Nah.
Yes. So back to the sticker booklet. It may look like a simple little crafting accessory, but actually, one phrase at a time, it spells out my personal code for living. I like to take a sticker a day, put it somewhere visible – and cogitate.
