The word FRIVOLOUS reminds me of people who are always thinking of fame without working for it. We know nothing comes easy,one needs to put in the effort to succeed.

It reminds me of a tale I read when I was in primary school. I think it was about a milkmaid and her pail, she was daydreaming how she would churn butter with the milk, sell it to the market and would buy eggs, which would hatch into chickens, her yard would be full, she’d sell them and with the money buy a new dress, she’d wear the dress which would make her look  so pretty, all the young men would ask her hand in marriage, she’d decline them all, then she nodded her head and the pail went flying and the milk spilled all over on the ground, with it her dream.

It was silly of her, but we humans do daydream therefore the moral of the story, “Do not count your chickens before they are hatched.” It  should teach us about our foolish dreams!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post in which so much meaning is conveyed from the milkmaid story. I do believe we need to carefully choose our dreams, since we will become them.

    All good wishes,

    robert
