When I think of “BFFS”, I see my mother in my mind’s eye. She has taught me a lot of lessons. I talk about them,think, and write whenever the opportunity presents itself.
One of the lessons she taught me and wanted me to follow strictly was never say anything bad about any one. If you don’t like someone whatever the reason may be strike those names off your head. Do not think about them at all. You can achieve a lot with your mind. read a book .Think of the characters. Write about them. Pick one you liked most. Write a short paragraph explaining ,what was special about him/her.
When you’ve done that. Write a book review,your review may or may not help your reader, but you’ve used your time well. You will forget about people who rub you the wrong way.
You can also help your siblings with their homework. They can certainly use it.
Keep your brain occupied with things that can help you and others.
When I’d listened to her, I’d think “what a neat way to occupy my brain.”
To me it was the nicest thing I’ve ever done. To others it might not be the case. Still I thought I did something nice back when I was studying in the university.
We were three female students in our class, rest of them were male. Two hundred fifty were male and only three of us were female. I thought if I could help my two female classmates complete the assignment given to us, it would be the nicest thing I could do for them.
My classmates were having trouble with the assignment. They didn’t know how to do it. Being a nice person like I was, I let them look at mine. Was I thinking they’d copy my work word for word, no I didn’t? That’s exactly what they did!
We handed in our assignment. The Prof. read our assignment and then without missing a beat he barked, “Who copied whom?”
I thought it was the nicest thing I ever did. The Prof.’s looks clearly indicated it wasn’t the nicest thing. So I leave it up to my readers to make the final decision!
