What has inspired me to pick up my personal blog again is this taco painted in the neon colors. It’s an image that my niece XY, the one and only next-generation in my small sized family, took a minute to draw on her laptop during her class, while patiently waiting for the professor to move on to the next subject to discuss. After noticing this bright -colored sketching, the professor accelerated the speed to deliver his lecture. 😉
A little humor doesn’t hurt anyone, right?Having been enrolled in the graduate school in New York for just two and half months, XY has already aced almost all her mid-term exams. What’s behind the 95 percentile score lies the combination of curiosity, intelligence and diligence. What about the tacos, you would probably ask. I think it’s a good reflection of her philosophy toward life: always remember to have a little bit fun!
Off we went, got on the PATH and subway, traveled to Brooklyn this weekend, just to get some sun and fun.
And talking about life, family and mindset, I cannot end this blog entry without sharing a passage from one of my favorite classic novel “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith:
“Dear God, let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry…have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere – be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.”
Now, have a big bite of that taco, give the world a big hug, work hard, laugh loud, love as you have never been hurt and dance like no one is watching.
Wish you had a fun weekend! 💛💚
