So what did kill the cat? (Was it curiosity?)

Everyone know the proverb curiosity killed the cat, but is it really the case?

While I was reading a book I came across this phrase that everyone knows and takes for granted. And because the book I was reading wasn’t really all that interesting anyway, I looked it up. What book? Not telling 🙂

The fact is, that although curiosity can put people (and cats) in dangerous situations, it won’t kill you if you’re careful.

Quite ironic, considering that the original proverb is care killed the cat, isn’t it?

So what is it that really we should be worried about?

That is the answer in itself.
Worry
The expression care killed the cat, is referring to the fact that if we do nothing but worry, thinking about “our cares and woes” (forgive the olde English, but it’s where the origin is) we can waste away through nine lives. But we have only one life. Why waste it on worry?

It’s in our nature to worry, to think “What If”
That is what really hurts us.

Stop thinking about the “What ifs” in life. Start thinking about What IS

If you love, then love with all your heart. If you have faith, then believe with all your soul, if you are intelligent, then use your mind fully. If you have worries, look back on the last three things, and be thankful.

What worries, cares and woes can you give up today?

Love

I’ve been thinking about the importance of Love. Yep, you’ve guessed it, Valentine’s day is coming!

I’m single, so many people would hunk that this day has no meaning for me.

But that’s not the case.

I want to use this upcoming event to bless all those I love by telling them just that. I love them.

But I’m not going to wait. I want the people I know and care about to know right here right now.

I love you.

Whether you are someone from my past, someone whom I’m in contact with now, or someone I’ve yet to meet, the fact is that to some degree (admittedly stronger for some people) I love you.

I’m so glad that I was given a heart that can’t hate, and is predetermined to like others.

This is what I think of real love:

Love is never giving up.
Love is caring more for others than for yourself.
Love is to not want what you don’t have.
Love is to not show off, be proud or, forcing yourself on others,
Love isn’t always “me first,”
Love is to not fly off the handle,
Nor to keep remembering the bad things other people have done,
Love is to not be happy when someone is begging you for something,
Love is to love the truth
Put up with anything,
Trusts In your faith always,
Always look for the best,
Never look back, but keep going to the end.

Love never dies.

I want this to be my ideal, and to aim for this type of love in all I do.
