WARNING LABEL SIGNS EVERYWHERE: Where Is The Fun?
We live in a society that’s overrun with warning labels. From disclaimers on pills, to “use-by” dates on soup cans, to danger signs on Chaim saws – warning labels draw our attention to impending hazards.
Recently I received a box with a precious gift inside. The sender had attached a big red sticker to the package that said, FRAGILE: HANDLE WITH CARE. When I think about life and it’s fragility, I wonder if we shouldn’t all wear one of those red stickers.
It’s not a good idea (I am super guessing) to cruise through life thinking that we are invincible and that everything is going to be just fine -only to discover that we are far more fragile than we thought. It takes only a call from the doctor telling us that we have a life threatening disease that comes with an assumption of months or years to live.
On the face of reality in as much as we prefer to live in the cautious zone… There ls no guarantee! We pray and think safe for long life? But where then is the fun, if we are sluggish and do nothing different?
Yes, we should consider life cautious and at the same time more importantly, a creativity zone.
Today, you just have to push out those red blur sentiment of bring fragile and do something you love that would make the world positive and then at your grey haired age, probably while watching a soap opera or on the sofa you will smile,
“I’m glad I took up the risk”
Just like today writing since lots of days…
