Writing Prompt: Third from the top

Head to your favorite blog,scroll down to the third post. Take the third sentence in the post,and work it into a new post of your own.

I do not like to limit myself! 

This universe has a lot of potential. I like to think if I try hard enough I can spread myself and see how much out there is within the realm of possibilities for me.

Yes I did limit myself in the past,thinking I was only good for one thing, teaching. I didn’t even give myself a chance to see what other things I can do successfully.

I watch the the young minds trying  things before they settle for one thing. Incidentally I have come across bloggers who paint,write poems,play musical instruments, study and are still not satisfied.

When I look at myself I’m amazed to find myself limited to one thing, if I could turn back the clock,I’d do things differently to please myself only and not someone else who doesn’t care what I do.

Maybe if I get the chance to reincarnate, I’d try to do everything I shied away from,such as learn to skate,climb a mountain,learn to sing ,run a marathon, change my profession. There is a lot of things I can try so at the end of my adventure I could proudly say, win or lose “At least I gave myself a chance.”

“I do not like to limit myself”! These words are taken from Ali’s blog. Thanks Alienora.

Writing Prompt: Cliche

Yes I truly agree cliches become cliches for a reason. There are lessons we learn from them,which is why we still use them.

My experience with ,”A bird in hand is worth two in the bush,”  has taught me lessons I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

It happened when I was looking for a teaching job. I got one of the jobs I applied for. I was uneasy about taking the job,because I thought if I accept it I may not be able to explore other possibilities. I kept thinking and put my acceptance letter on hold. The authorities wanted an answer within a  couple of days,I wasn’t overly anxious to tell them I’d take it.

When I didn’t see any other job prospect, I quickly wrote my acceptance letter. Unlucky for me when the authorities failed to get an answer from me, they thought the obvious i.e.,she is not interested. They reopened their file  and gave the job to the applicant next on their list.  I was left in the cold,well how’s that for,”A bird in hand is worth two in the bush,” I told myself. From then on I took any job that came my way, teaching I mean!
