WHO MOVED MY CHEESE
After Dr. Seuss, there's Spencer Johnson. I first read...well, scanned actually his book Who Moved My Cheese approximately 2 years ago when this was given as a reading assignment in a seminar where I was one of the facilitators. At that time, I thought it was a cute little story but did not really impress me. Last month I bought a copy and this time gave it a good read and suddenly, what I was reading was making a lot of sense. I guess that what was written in the book was something I needed to hear at this point in my life when I feel that I am at a dead-end, and therefore I need to get moving or else! Not everyone who reads this book the first time will appreciate the message...like me, for example...unless it relates to one's life experience. I finally understood the wisdom of it's message because for the past few years my life's direction has not been going anywhere. I feel like I have been going around in circles day in and day out. This year I had a light bulb moment...that for life to get better change must happen...and I'm not talking only about my life but life for everyone in general. Can you imagine if nothing changes in our lives...if life becomes one big plateau...stagnant, boring, apathetic. Well, not me...I don't want to live my life like that...I intend to move with the cheese and enjoy the ride!
