"Lesson from a nursery song"
Since I can no longer hold my phone than usual, I didn't get a chance to look for a good discussion to discuss with you tonight. My day ended up without any topic to write😅. It is really hard to think, while my son is roaming around the living room and playing. After I get upset last night, I told myself that the incident wouldn't happen again. The accusations is quite hurtful, so I choose to focus with my son besides he is my main priority. But I don't wanna miss this day without writing anything. I already miss five days and I don't want to add one more day 😂, so I hope you can still bear with me 😊.
Today nothing special, but I do enjoy my time with my son. My son and I keep playing around the house and when he gets tired, I let him watch his favourite Cocomelon nursery song 😅. Since he keeps watching it most of the day, I already memorize most of the songs inside the vedio lol. But my favourite vedio, was the song of speedy hare and the Turtle, as I also found a lesson from it. I also love the vedio about the three little piggies, while my son really enjoyed the song of the wheel on the bus,he even dance while trying to sung the song lol. If you have a child and he/she also watch Cocomelon, I think you knew which Vedio's I am talking about.
Anyway for those who didn't know, it's actually about the Hare and the Tortoise, but I think this is a very common story. Where the turtle tried to have a race with the hare. He dare the Hare because it is always over confident with his speed, as it believe that no one can try to beat him. So when the turtle dare him he laughed so hard as he couldn't believe that it's trying to compete with his speed, and even though he knew how slow the turtle was, he still accept it's challenge. He wants to prove that he was the king of speed.
Before their race started, all the animals come to watch their race and they believe that the tortoise can beat the speedy hare.
When the race started, the hare was very confident the he would won. He run as fast as he could, while the turtle struggle to run fast but he still continue.
When the Hare notice that he's distance was very far from the tortoise, he takes a seat to eat and rest, until he didn't notice that he fell asleep. The consistent and determine tortoise came and he saw that the hare was sleeping and so he walked very slow and tried to pass the sleeping Hare. He continued to walk until he was about to reach the finish line.
The Hare suddenly woke up and he startled when he found out that he fall asleep. When he saw the turtle had already pass on him, he tried to run as fast as he can to reach the turtle as he really wanted to be the winner, but he slipped and fall, while the determine turtle reach the finish line confidently.
With this vedio, the lesson that I found was nothing can really beat with consistency, hard-works, patience and determination if we want to succeed. The beginning might be possible and hard, but if we believe in our ability, nothing can beat with our determination. Consistency is a big factor and hard-works can't be defeated. It's actually okay to rest but it's not okay to be over confident, as it might also lead us to failure.
I know this story is very much familiar to anyone, specially to my fellow Filipino writer's, as I also first learn about it in my first grade. I just love to share it as a reminder.
Anyway this is all for today, if you came this far thank you ☺️. I really appreciate your time for reading my article.
