This post is about a little problem that’s bugging me lately, a friend’s personal problem, and finding solutions to them.
Confucius says, “Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.”
Meet the little rascal
Sometime ago, my heart took me to this young blogger who writes about social relevant issues. I was impressed – so young and so wise. I left a comment on his blog. A week later I received an email from the young blogger, announcing a new post. I visited him again and left another comment. Today an email from the young hotshot urged me to check out the latest post. He has not visited me here to say howdy.
My heart this time refused to go. This little rascal is maybe a hotshot but he knows next to nothing about reciprocation. My heart is seething with anger. But Confucius says, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
So I let go. Thanks, Confucius. I feel smarter now. Uh – oh. Not quite – I wrote this post, after all.
One tough problem
Another journey, another place. This time on a friend’s blog. Elmot’s scribbled a quick post to explain the lack of updates on his blog. His father had an accident – fell off a hotel roof, suffered 3 broken ribs. As if this was not enough, the doctor announced his father had tuberculosis. Elmot is the eldest and has to be with his father and asked his readers for understanding and prayers for his father’s quick recovery.
Elmot, hang tough, my friend. As I said in my comment, I’m the least prayerful guy you’d ever know, coming as I did from strict Catholic upbringing. But I’d do it for you, my friend. In the past, I had prayed hard for typhoons to stop messing with our roof. Certainly, your father deserves an exception to my stringent rules.
A prolific blogger once said that your issues can be solved 99% of the time by googling it. Well, well, try googling about 3 cracked ribs and let’s see how that helps my friend’s father.
My buddy Confucius to the rescue
Anyway, Confucius seems to have solved my petty blog problem. I found this: “Have no friends not equal to yourself”
What a neat solution to my little blogging problem.
Go away you little rascal.
