Slow But Sure

Catapult

Isn’t it somewhat scary being catapulted to the top or to sudden success?  in our careers,  in our wealth or in any situation?
The unexpected jolt can cause us to lose our grip. Consequently, a faster and uncontrollable downfall!
Wouldn’t you rather work and learn your way slowly but surely towards your goals? I believe that doing so will give one the ample time to hone the skills needed to reach them. We ought to take the steps and avoid being catapulted to the top by taking the lift. No shortcuts.

Catapulted into marriage? Nah. Don’t rush. Get to know that someone you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. Regrets come last.

Catapulted to an idea or a belief? Think! Breathe! Keep calm. Your opinion matters. Make a choice. You don’t need to conform.

Perfume

An Identifier

I scanned the glass shelf of a perfumery shop looking for that brand which fitted my budget and I couldn’t help but mentally label certain bottles with my friends’ names who use them often, if not all the time. Finally, I found one that gives a light and cool whiff. The purchase is completed and is happy.¬†So you see, I am not inclined to constantly wearing a specific scent. At the moment, I have a few of them and I randomly choose whatever tickles my fancy, so to speak.

The smell of fish and chips whets my appetite. So does grilled fish. Although I am not a fussy eater, I struggle with the strong and penetrating smell of canned sardines in tomato sauce, especially if it’s just been microwaved! I don’t ¬†understand how my son could eat that!

I like the following: scented candles, diffusers, scented plug-ins. My husband hates them! And oh, those car deodorizers! I find them missing every time my hubby borrows my car. And guess where I found them? They were stashed in the glove compartment or in the bin! I did ask why he finds them repulsive, he smugly said, ‘ I like fresh air’. Oh, alright.

While traveling on the highway, one relative said to me, ‘You’ve forgotten to take a shower again!’ Everyone laughed and I realised we were passing through a town where a thriving and massive poultry business is located.

We continued to travel away to where the fresh air reminded us of how amazing it is to breathe and live! Indeed, life itself is a lot like perfume!
