I was looking at my band-aid box racking my mind for new ideas for a blog post, and I came across to reading the description on the back of the box. When I read the description for my flexible fabric Band-Aids, (“extra flexibility-stretchable, comfortable, fabric moves with you to fit better”), it got me to thinking….

People often are accustomed to sticking to their own routines and their own views of life. Very few people are actually open to changing their routines or views of life. While sticking to what you believe and sticking to a daily routine can be healthy and smart, sometimes, it’s okay to be a little flexible.

We, myself included, should always be open to new ideas and other viewpoints. Being closed minded all the time can sometimes limit the mental growth of your mind and limit the number of experiences and new things you could encounter!

My flexible fabric band-aids were described as easily flexible and able to move with you. Applying this to my idea of people being flexible, maybe if we all tried being more flexible and open to new things in life, we ourselves will be able to become accustomed to new things and grow in new experiences! That’s what she said…

Please No More

I am nearing the end of my blog project and it’s getting to a point where I can’t even look at band-aids anymore…I don’t know how I will ever be able to recover. The damage caused by this project and the band-aids will forever stick with me and haunt me years on from now. Hopefully, with a little miracle, I can go back to my daily life without having to think of band-aids all the time….me.

Holding down promises

“Promise little and do much” – Hebrew Proverb

We often make tons of promises to people around us. Unfortunately, we sometimes forget about promises we make, not on purpose in some cases, but just because life is so busy that it’s easy to forget what we promise.

On the other hand, making a lot of promises and never acting on any of them is even worse. What if we were able to take our promises, magically form them into physical objects, and hold them down with band-aids? Maybe if we physically held down our promises and attached them to our bodies, it would be easier to remember what promises we made and make sure that we carry out our promises.

But sometimes, we all have to be a little careful in the amount of promises we make to people. Taking this idea of physically holding down promises with band-aids, maybe we should beware of making too many promises so our bodies won’t be covered in too many band-aids. After all, it’s better to “promise little and do much”.

Eat Pray Love…Band-Aids

While I was trying to come up with ideas for my blog, my girlfriend was watching the movie “Eat Pray and Love”. It got me thinking I might as well write a blog relating to it because I basically eat while I am thinking about ideas for the blog, pray that I will get ideas about the blog and not necessarily love band-aids but have a strong emotion for the blog and band-aids.  I am thinking about blog ideas 24/7, so basically…Eat Pray Love…Band-Aids.

Quick Experience

Whenever I was younger and wanted to do something big like helping my dad put furniture together, he would tell me that I was still too young and that I would have to wait until I was older. Everytime I hear something like this from my parents, I always wished that I could grow up quickly and be able to do certain things.

Sometimes even now, I wish I had experience in any area I wanted so that I could do or achieve something without having to put in the time and effort. For example, I really want to get a job and get out of college. Sometimes, I wish I could get the experience I needed for a job and just skip all the years of college and save all the money spent towards my tuition.

Do you think that maybe we could just put “experience” into band-aids and stick them on whenever we want to do something we don’t have the experience for?

Maybe if we wanted to get an A on a math test that we didn’t study for, we could just stick on a math patterned band-aid on our arm and get all the experience and knowledge for math in a second and ace that test. Or, if we wanted to figure out how to raise a kid, we could stick a baby patterned band-aid on our heads and in a second learn how to properly take care of a baby.

But then again, life would be less enjoyable if we could get experience the easy way?

Becoming one band-aid

From the beginning of time, people have always been arguing over religion. People are always arguing that only their religion is right and everyone else’s religion is wrong. So many problems in our current events is rooted from people disputing over religion.

I’ve always wondered what it would be like if everyone just had one religion together. What if everybody just believed the same things and followed the same rules in religion? Maybe less problems would happen in the world and we could all live in peace.

A band-aid strip is always in one piece. I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen a band-aid broken up in half or in quarters to cover up a wound. With all the war and disputes going on around the world over religion, our world has a big wound that may never be healed because there isn’t a big enough band-aid to cover the wound up to heal it. In other words, maybe the world will never be able to have peace because people will never give up their views to come together in peace.

Maybe we should all try to be more like a band-aid by making compromises or amends towards one another and become unified in making our world a better place. A band-aid that is cut up into pieces will never help heal a wound so maybe everyone in the world should unify together to help heal the wound we all have inflicted on the world.

The way I work

Some people might see this and say that I am procrastinating and not doing work on my blog. I see it as energizing and pumping myself up so I can work on my blog later. We all have our different points of view, but at the end of the day, if all the work is done there shouldn’t be any disputes or arguments. Results matter, how we get there might matter somewhat as well, but nowhere as near as the results.
