What does you ideal community look like?How is it organized, and how is community life structured? What values does the community share?
My ideal community is a medium sized city, it is neat and clean, in times of snow the city workers clear the snow. Garbage is collected weekly. Every other week we are supposed to collect recyclable items separately and the regular garbage in normal bags, and place them on the curb.
We have a postal system, they deliver our mail Monday to Friday.
We have a number of grocery stores where we can buy fresh and frozen produce, also fresh milk, cheese,and butter.These stores also carry cleaning stuff.
We have volunteers who take care of food and clothing donated by the citizens.
We have hospitals where the patients are treated by trained physicians.
We have one university, it offers a variety of courses to the students, from computer science to medicine and arts and science as well.
Our airport is international, you can travel anywhere from here, of course one has to use connecting flights.
We have a variety of festivals which the people can enjoy at certain times of the year.
I think our community is an ideal community.
Gloria sat in her room thinking about her life, she was so ambitious, one rejection completely killed her confidence, she is scared to apply anywhere else, her Mom tried to convince her, it’s not the end of the world, there are other places you can apply, after all you are qualified to teach.
She remembered clearly her Prof told her she made the wrong choice she should have gone for nursing, there are tons of job in that field.
It’s too late, she spent so many years studying, she cannot change now, all her friends have good jobs she’s the only one who is unsuccessful, she scoured the pages of the newspaper for teaching positions, she saw one it was a temporary position to substitute for a teacher who was going on maternity leave.
She applied immediately, she was told it was only for a year, will she be interested, it was the best thing she heard in such a long time, yes she said, “I am interested!”
That day she went home, hugged her Mom and Dad, told them about her job, she was so happy, tears rolled down her cheeks, “Thank you God” she said!
The glass half -full or half-empty?
An optimist sees the glass half-full, while the pessimist sees it as half empty. It is a person’s view on life. An optimist looks for good in any situation and finds a way to keep a positive attitude.
A pessimist finds fault in everything, such as why is my glass half empty while Richard has a full glass.In this scenario an optimist will think, may be there was only enough water in the jug to fill half the glass, it isn’t done on purpose.
