Curiosity Killed the Cat

Curiosity Killed the Cat Cats are curious little creatures! They love to explore things around them. If they find something strange, they won’t rest until they’ve completely discovered what it is. However, curiosity is not a trait that only cats follow. It is a quality that many of us have. In fact, it is one of those abilities that make us open to learning new things in life. Sometimes, this quality can also harm us, or our young ones! Let’s find out how! Once there were two siblings. Sam and Kelly were playing in their front yard. It was just after dusk.

More Than One Truth

More Than One Truth An elderly man was sitting in his garden when his two grandsons came to sit with him. Their faces showed that they were both obviously angry about something. The old man could not help but ask, “What is the matter, children? Have you two been fighting over something?” His grandson explained, “Grandpa, we were playing outside on the street when I saw a large six that someone had drawn on the ground with chalk. I told my brother but he does not believe me! He keeps saying it’s a nine!” The other grandson cut his brother off and said, “Grandpa, my brother probably does not know how to count because it is CLEARLY a nine!

Life Is Not a Competition

Life Is Not a Competition Can you name the happiest man on earth? What do you think he owns? You probably think about the luxuries in life. He may be a billionaire with a huge mansion and a fleet of cars. Or you think about a celebrity who is almost as rich and oh-so-famous! Then as kids, we believed that we’d be happy when we came first in class or won a race or got praised in front of everyone. It was all about being the ‘best’ and owning the fanciest, flashiest ‘stuff’. It seems that we have been ingrained with a competitive mindset. Darwin speaks of the ‘survival of the fittest’, doesn’t he? It is our natural instinct to cutthroats and then move forward. This is probably why we have play life like a game. This was the scenario when I entered the halls of my alma mater. The>>>

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life

It’s Never Too Late to Live Your Life Once upon a time, a man was wandering in a clear, grey forest. He seemed to be lost, searching for something. However, before he could find what he had been looking for, he came across a tiger. The tiger chased the man to the edge of the cliff and the man tipped over. Luckily, he grabbed a vine half way down the fall. He was momentarily safe. Although, when he looked up at the cliff, he didn’t quite feel that way. The tiger stood, bare tooth and gnawing away at the edge in the hopes of catching the man waiting to devour his own hunger. The man gulped down and decided to find a way to get himself out of this predicament by looking for a way further down. Perhaps, he could make his way back to home from somewhere on the>>>
