We discussed a lot of cultural and social differences that occur in other countries and there were many to talk about! One thing my sister said is that in other countries, children listen to their elders and respect what they have to say. There is a tradition of listening to people older than you and really taking it in, realizing that maybe they have something to share with you that they have learned from all of their years and experiences on earth.
Well, at the Czech Center opening, I spoke to many different people of all ages and coming from a lot of different backgrounds.
Who imparted the following wisdom...
He said, "I have learned this...if you want a good life, you need 4 things:
1. Someone to love
2. Something to do
3. Something to look forward to
4. To not take life too seriously"
...I think this is wonderful advice!
