Bamboo is a common plant in the Philippines. It is very versatile and we have many uses for it. We use it as food, building material and as a versatile raw product. We have bamboo houses, bamboo decors, bamboo flutes, and even the world famous 19th century Bamboo organ.
A few months ago, hubby and I went on a short vacation in Calatagan, Batangas (south of Manila) and were pleased to find a Bamboo park.
It was cool, serene, and relaxing.
Perfect for a morning run.
Then we found this simple sign. I really liked it because as a child, I remember my Dad teaching me about this several times; and now that I’m into the martial arts, I like it even more.
Thank you for the profound observation, Bruce Lee.
Yes, the bamboo: So ordinary and yet so valuable.
When I got home, I surfed the internet to look for other lessons from this ordinary yet so valuable plant. There are many.
Life Improvement suggestion for all of us: Choose one or two lessons and then apply it in our lives this week.
