Published about 1 month agoΒ β€’Β 2 min read

Hey Reader, πŸš€


Imagine stumbling upon a little prince from a distant asteroid, sharing tales of planets, talking flowers, and peculiar grown-ups. Of course, I'm talking about the enchanting journey of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry. The novella that invites us to see the world through eyes wide with wonder.

This short story is packed with timeless wisdom and powerful insights, so here are 7 lessons inspired by this remarkable story:

  1. πŸ‘οΈβ€πŸ—¨οΈ See With Your Heart: Beyond what meets the eye lies the true essence of things. Try to perceive the world around you not just with your eyes but with your heart. What invisible beauties have you noticed today?
  2. 🌱 Nurture Your Bonds: Like the prince and his fox, invest time and heart in your relationships. Ask yourself, how can you deepen your most meaningful connection this week?
  3. πŸ€” Question Adult Wisdom: If the prince has taught us anything, it's that adulthood sometimes means missing the point. Today, try to approach a problem or a hobby with childlike curiosity (or better say, with a beginner's mind). What new insights do you find?
  4. 🌹 Be There for Your Rose: Everyone has their own unique rose – a friend, a family member, a passion. Show care and take responsibility for your rose. Think about ways you can express your care more deeply.
  5. πŸ”„ Embrace Life's Journey: Change is the only constant in our journey through life. Reflect on a recent change in your life – how has it helped you grow?
  6. πŸ” Stay Curious: Let your quest for knowledge be as boundless as the prince's. Pick up a book on a topic you know nothing about, or sign up for a course that you've been thinking of. What sparks of curiosity did this ignite?
  7. 😊 Cherish Simple Joys: Find delight in the small things – a shared laugh, a beautiful sunset. Make it a point to recognize and cherish a simple joy in your life today. What did you find?

Which of these lessons resonates with you? How can we make our planet a bit more like the prince's asteroid B-612, filled with wonder, care, and deep connections? Feel free to reply to this email and share your thoughts.
