Lesson of the Day: More Successful, Less Successful

Graduate study is an interesting journey.
In it, I acquire much knowledge and learn practical skills.
At the same time, I have gained much life lesson too.
I have seen people who are more successful than I am.
While I congratulate them, deep inside I acknowledge than I am less successful than they are.
That is, I have got a taste of ‘failure’.

In another occasion, I have seen other people who are less successful than I am.
Since I have understood the feeling of a ‘failure’, I then am able to sympathize with them rather than looking down at them.
I have been mentoring some ‘less successful’ people.
Instead of being harsh, I have been able to patiently guide them step by step to be ‘successful’.
Somehow, my ‘failure’ makes me put myself in their shoes

Indeed, ‘failure’ is a bittersweet experience!

Eating Raw Fruits and Veggies

Read a news about a businesswoman who eats raw fruits and vegetables.
Amazingly, she looks much younger than her age.

Well, some commenter wrote that she looked young probably because of her gene, not her diet.
Hmm, I guess I will give her a benefit of doubt: she really looks young because of her diet.

It is not a big surprise, to be honest.
God originally created humans to be vegetarians.
Just later, God allowed humans to eat meats.

To me, I don’t think I will completely follow her footsteps to completely eat raw fruits and vegetables only.
I still think meat is an important diet.
Btw, in my school canteen, raw fruits and vegetables are mostly sold as juice.

Hmm, she is really an inspiration.
I shall increase my budget by adding more fruit juice daily.
As of now, I believe with all my heart that I am handsome.
Well, who knows with this diet change, I will become more handsome Smile with tongue out Smile with tongue out Smile with tongue out
