Talking to co-workers today I came up with a good motto, Don’t Get Use To The Stench!
You see, as humans we have this great ability to adapt to our surroundings, to make the best of a bad situation, to withstand horrid environmental conditions, to put up with an ever-increasing pile of bat guano.
The conversation with these co-workers reminded me of my first visit to the Philippines. In the big city of Manila there’s a river “slum” where people live over the top of what can only be describes as a floating pile of Shit and Trash – literally. The stench from this is almost unbearable. But somehow, people live there in shotty homes built of thin wood and sticks.
You see, these people have allowed themselves to Get Use to the Stench!
There is no circumstance that you should ever accept that makes you become numb or accustom to the stench of life!
We all have things in our lives that are painful to deal with… Somehow we numb our noises to the stench these things create.
I say today to resist! Don’t Get Use To The Stench! EVER!
