Thought for the week..#229

Posted in Food & Entertaining, and Things We Love

The right way to live has to do with selflessness. I believe that. But how does one act that out? I don’t think you practice it consciously. It has to be something that develops in you – maybe through a lot of mistakes.

  1. And yet there is that whole recent movement of saying no to the things you don’t want to do and you will be a happier person which in turn will make you a better person to be around. But surely the core of that is selfishness. I’m probably due to make a lot more mistakes as Scorsese warns!

    • I interpreted it more as being of service. Happily live in the camp of those who say no to a million things that don’t matter.

  2. Hmm I’ve definitely made my share of mistakes. This has really given me something to think about. Thank-you for sharing the quote

    • Very welcome (as I try to cultivate more selflessness..)

  3. In order to love other people, you need also to love yourself. In other words, you need to respect yourself and your own needs, particularly for rest.
