成長

前幾天早上,一如往常的幫妳換褲子,猛然驚覺妳長大了。小腳變大了,褲子也變得短了一些,不改的是那股稚氣。只希望你平安健康快樂的成長。

再難, 也要正面思考

這一個星期, 發生了好多事, 先是小藍車在公司停車場被撞, 接著老婆去做超音波產檢, 卻被留院觀察, 而在一星期的最後一個工作天, 在工作上卻諸事不順, 下了班, 又發現安親班的處事方式有待加強,想要正面思考, 似乎是不太可能…

但,就是這樣,才會成長吧,才會懂的更多,才會知道如何去想。畢竟要跳脫已有的思想格局也不容易。

Working without phones, literally

First day back from the long weekend (BC Day).

I come across an article Disconnecting from technology is liberating in Vancouver Sun, and it’s a topic I have read a few times on how we can better utilize the technology to our benefits so that we do not become a slave to all the electronic devices.

Guess what, after I read it, the phones in my company go offline.  Zip.  Nada.  Total blank.  Nothing.

Talking about disconnecting.

Within a few minutes, all I can see in the hallway are people on their cell phones, calling the customers, talking to the phone company, doing whatever it takes to get the phone service back to normal.  I understand that we are in a world where we prefer to have everything working properly, and let’s be honest, we are working and customers need to be looked after.

The article goes on to talk about the author’s brilliant and brave attempt to disconnect himself from the technological world step by step, from turning off the TV for a week, then web surfing, then phones and emails, then phones.  Although inconvenient at first, disconnecting from technology makes reconnecting to the real world and real people possible.

A simple banking transaction that takes less than a minute on the internet now becomes a physical activity – getting to the bank, waiting in line, talking to the cashier, then getting a stamp of approval.  Wait, isn’t this how we used to do banking?

Holding a real book.  Wow, a book has weight?  Not the weight of the tablet/smartphone anymore.  The real book, a 450-page publication that requires the mind to be focused and the fingers flipping the pages.  The added touch?  The hard cover that seems to add a few more pounds to the book.

Advances in technology has improved dramatically to make daily life simpler, but at times we forget we achieve more by having less.

A feat that I adore, admire, and aiming to try.  Hats off to Mr. Kelly.

懷念小時候

二十幾年前,還記得小時候跟爸媽去香港,印象中跟著爸媽在香港的街道上,進進出出一家又一家的書店。濃郁的書香,到現在似乎還可以聞到。

由於年紀還小,所以爸爸就教我用手指勾著他的口袋,還叫我緊緊的勾住不可以放手,因為一放手就會被人群沖散。

長大後,彷彿對以前的事更有記憶,像是要找回那一段美好的時光。

Looking Up

image

When is the last time you look up from a kid’s point of view?

I took this picture when I was with my daughter at the playground.  I love playing with her, because more often than not, I am taken to a place that I have not been to since I was a kid.  In that, I am often reminded of how kids see things differently than grownups, and how we can start appreciating even simple things differently and live our life fuller.

I always think that it’s not so much we are teaching our kids, but how they are teaching us to teach them.

Friday – Accepted

Yes, it’s Friday, undoubtedly the favourite day of the week for most people.

Me too.

I can get up at 5 in the morning on the weekends and not feeling tired at all, whereas I can just sleep in until 8 or 9 in the morning on any given working day.  Why?  I don’t know, but I suspect I am hesitant to face the reality of the world after a good night’s rest and I want to save the newfound energy to do something for my family and myself, like eating breakfast together, go for a morning walk, clean the car, vacuum the floor…

Have a great weekend.

Everyday

Everyday.

Everyday is like yesterday, full of history.

Everyday is like today, full of opportunities.

Everyday is like tomorrow, full of hope.

Everyday is your day.  Make it count.
