In my inbox today, was an email from my uncle … a little message that’s just what I needed as I try and figure out how to work in the office today. Yes, it’s Saturday and I’ve got to come back to work :p
A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed.
The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.
That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.
Moral of the story:
If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent. This is applicable for any relationship like love, friendship, employer-employee relationship etc.
Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully
“It’s nice to be an important person, but it’s more important to be a nice person.”
Some may argue the girl’s such a loser but hey, in my 30s, I’ve come to realise it doesn’t matter what others think of me and this story is so true. As long as I’m happy with myself and fall straight to sleep as soon as my head hits the pillow, I’m all good 🙂 So 100% is what I’m going to give when I wake every morning because that’s what I want to give … it’s not always going to be easy but I’m choosing to rather sleep well at night 🙂
Right now I’m done with my 100% for the day, just waiting for the film crew to wrap up so I can go for dinner with my parents 🙂
