Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Staging Life....

A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
Khalil Gibran

My dad was the son of poor Italian immigrants in Brooklyn

His options were limited

His vision was not

He began his career washing test tubes 
only because someone offered him the job

He ended his career with a PhD in physiology as a renowned researcher and academic

Funny thing is, 
dad never had a dream 

or a plan

to be a scientist.

But he had the opportunity, 

so he acted

He acted as though he was a brilliant scientist 

He did the things a brilliant scientist does

He read the things a brilliant scientists reads

He acted as though he was a brilliant scientist 

until he became one

Dad always said: 
"You do what is in front of you, and you do it well"

So, Go! 
You are brilliant!
Act like the person you want to be until you become that person
and that's poetiquejustis

Proverbs 16:16   How much better it is to acquire wisdom than gold
