Great minds think alike?

Or has someone been reading my blog and borrowing my ideas?

Check out these two articles and you decide:

http://www.politicsdaily.com/2010/04/26/best-age-to-have-a-baby-a-before-26-b-after-26-c-never/

http://zenhabits.net/zen-attachment/

My sister found the article in the first link, which was posted on the website a mere 13 days after I wrote this entry. I think anyone who reads my blog post and this article will see the similarity in the discussions, though I admit that I didn't include the whole "Jillian Michaels says having a baby will ruin your hard body" line of thinking.

The article in the second link is from a blog I read regularly. I actually am much more inclined to think that the posting of this article, which discusses the same theme I discussed in this entry, is merely a coincidence. I also know that letting go of attachments is a basic part of Zen Buddhist practice, so it makes sense to me that a blog called "Zen Habits" would feature an entry on letting go of attachment.

It is an interesting coincidence to run across recent writings by others about topics on which I myself have been writing and ruminating of late. I guess there really are no new ideas.

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
