Anyone who knows me, knows I love books...love reading, love learning. Anyway at the moment I am reading a book called Emotional Alchemy. In it there is this story which really touched a chord, and I wanted to share it with you.
A teacher asked a class "What colour are apples?" Most said red, others green and one child said white. The teacher explained - you can find red, and green but never white apples. The youngster said "Oh, yes you can look inside".
Wow ! How true is that. I know we are all taught not to judge a book by its cover but in reality we find it hard. Hands up who thought the child was wrong when they said white....hands up who now realises the question was not clear and it was just another persons way of viewing the same thing. It made me also think how much we cover up inside ourselves....do we get so wrapped up with what the world sees that we ignore our "core". Help yourself break habits this weekend...try one thing new - brushing your teeth with your opposite hand.....feel the unease of the change and instead of reverting back to habit...enjoy the strangeness of how it feels. Then Monday....try something new at work !
