Today I had planned to share my experience last week when I attended the return of Acton Carnival. Unfortunately, my laptop has been out of action to the extent where I started shopping for a new one. As it was late, the shop would be closing shortly. and I wasn't 'feeling' this, I went home. Luckily a family member managed to fix it this evening and with the new internet booster it is better than ever! So here is a quick story that appeared on Facebook this week which I consider worthy of a share.
THE DONKEY & THE TIGER
We all know the characters in this fable all too well, along with the feeling of frustration we face when we are unable to make our point.
It is very hard to simply stop talking or say, let's just disagree. The level of discipline needed to do so will vary from person to person.
Another key issue is the mood we are in which inevitably makes a difference. There is no point arguing until you're blue in the face which leaves both parties
angry. So, let's start learning to bow out early on and keep our energy for the important things in life.
