Wisdom of Elders
I get so excited every day when I have figured out how to do something new. Today was no different.
I now can create a “Notebook” in Evernote. And my Notebook name is “Contacts”. This is to list names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses and then to “share” it with others. For me working on a computer is something I enjoy. Learning, however, can be overwhelming and a challenge.
Here’s what I did; I googled for a tutorial on the program I wanted to learn. It walks you through step by step. Some programs are very complex and I find taking my time and learning a bit at a time works best. Seriously, I made some goofy mistakes and I had to delete everything and start over. The good thing is I figured out how to hit the “delete” button.
The important things to remind yourself are to get over your “fear” of trying something new. I was taught nothing ventured, nothing gained. That was from my wise mother.
So, as an elder I feel we have wisdom to share, and better yet it’s wonderful to learn something new and then be able to share it with others?
Since I am new to the workings of Optimistic Vibe...
This week i spent a lot of time taking in a lot of information, going through websites and trying to understand what this project is all about. While reading the website i saw a Quote by Robert John Cook that spoke to me and it was "Passion is our tiny voice leading us to our life of happiness."
I think to many people ignore that voice and it leads to people walking around with their spirits stuffed into a box and locked away deep inside us. It is so important to never break your spirits wings, always let it soar towards the things in life that will make you happy and a better person. That is something that I feel Optimistic Vibe understands as well.
We all should be doing our part to help make the world a place that is sustainable and positive for the generations to come and that is why I am truly excited to work with this project. I feel as though I am doing something to help the world take one more little step in a direction that helps the community learn to respect the 'aina and allow the 'aina to provide for us.
I am looking forward to doing everything i can to help spread the message of Optimistic Vibe through social media while raising funds for this project to come to life. There is a quote from Robert Collier that is "success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out" and I think that if the world continues to produce people like those at Optimistic Vibe who are willing to keep taking these small steps every day then the planet we leave our children will be a place that is worth living in.
