The joy of sharpening pencils

I enjoyed sharpening pencils when I was very young. In High school, the teacher suggested that we should stop using pencils. In that way, we have to be more careful about the writing, because we can't just erase it or tear paper off.

It reminds me of life. When you regret things you did in the past, you couldn't erase it, it was there even if you tear it off the templates. But what we can do is to know your mistakes, avoid the same mistakes, and head up then move on.

Even today, I have a joy of sharpening my pencil. It is hard at first. You have to rotate, twist, adjust, and try it to go in a different direction. But it starts getting easier and sharper, and you have to be extremely careful, because if it breaks, you have to start over.

If you ask me, have I ever started over? Oh yes! That's life, you fail, suffer but learn, stand up, and smile.
