The One With The Three Frogs

The One With The Three Frogs

Three frogs were sitting on a log and two decided to jump off, so how many were left on the log?

One, you say? Nope. Three. That’s the point. They only decided to jump off, they didn’t actually do anything about it. It’s not what you think about that matters in life, it’s what you actually do about it.

So I’ll begin today… by taking the train to work instead of my usual cab. It might be a small thing to you, it might be the jet lag talking, but it is a start for me.

Let today be the start of the adventure in your life.

The One With The Quotable from Yongfook

From a blog post by the ever-stylish Yongfook on becoming 30:

Like probably every human being on the planet over the age of 12, I have loved and lost. The difference is when you’re young, it’s easy to start dating again. As you get older (say, 30) it becomes progressively more difficult to find someone you really like. This is a result of many factors. You’re more experienced so you know more precisely what you want and are unwilling to waste time just casually dating otherwise. Half of your generation is probably already married. You’re also on the way towards the apex of your professional life so maybe for some this is not a great time to be thinking about that whole “love” thing.

How true. But even at our age, sometimes being practical is to let go your own fairy tales.

This certainly reminds me of the time when I turned 30. How far have we come?

Happy birthday, Yongfook.
