Old Ways

Caring for yourself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.

Good morning people. I hope you had a nice week. I wasn't going to write my blog today because I wasn't getting any good ideas but then I realised something, done is better than good. It won't be one of my finest but, it will be something.

Now whoever reading this has given or has received the great our ancestors used to do it or in old times we used to do it or this is how it has always been done...... speech, raise your hand. I am sure it must be a fair number. Now, how many of you have witnessed people giving up their dreams for these "old ways". It's sweet. Preserving your past. But, that doesn't mean you won't move on. Let us create a picture. Assume you have an old bicycle. It belonged to your grandfather. You've kept it. You've preserved it. But, you will still use your car. Sure Old is gold but, gold is worth preserving for special occasions. You won't wear all your gold every day. There are chances that it will get purloined. Past is worth preserving, not living in.

This also means that you don't have to give up anything for anyone. I have always believed that there are multiple ways of looking at a scenario. And that there are multiple answers to a problem which is perhaps why I get so confused in mathematics. And physics. But we are not here to talk about me. Your heritage never asked you to sell your possessions, shave your head and move to Nepal. You never promised yourself to believe in it to the point where you sell your possessions, shave your head and move to Nepal. If you keep living according to your past, you won't build your future or see your present. So, my dear learned scholars, preserve your past and your heritage but don't live in it.

Remember we are freaks, we are fragile and life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.

Goodbye and see you next Sunday.

Love Scarlett.😊
