Tailored expectations

“The only man who behaved sensibly was my tailor; he took my measurement anew every time he saw me, while all the rest went on with their old measurements and expected them to fit me” – George Bernard Shaw

This was the quote on my calendar (I absolutely dig that calendar, it’s called Chicken Soup for the Soul calendar) last month – and I quite liked it. Very thought provoking.

We all need The Seam Ripper!

The other day I was sewing something (yes I sew and if you would like a peek into my sewing adventures then check them out here) and I accidentally made a wrong stitch. Well it often happens, this wasn’t the first time; but it sure was the first philosophical seam ripping time! You see when I was ripping the seam, I thought to myself that it took me just a few seconds to make a wrong seam but almost 15 minutes to rip it off and I realized that draw an analogy to so many situations in life. It’s so easy to gain weight but so hard to lose it. It’s easy to adopt bad habits but so hard to let them go. And so many more. Don’t you think so?

So we all need The Seam Ripper Of Life that makes it all easy!
