Mind Math

Last Saturday we went to lunch at our friend's house and her daughter was practicing her Abacus tuition home work. After watching us observing their daughter moving fingers in air, my friend told me,' She is no more using her abacus now, she moves them in her mind'. 'aha'. She was doing bigger calculations in seconds.
I really felt proud and good watching  my friend's daughter but inside I was humiliated and was questioning my mind math. My husband always makes fun of me saying , you are studying to become a CPA and you rely too much on calculator.  I don't have mind math, all I do is pressing buttons and I am sure teenagers who send messages press buttons pretty faster than me.
So I decided to spend like at least two hours a week to learn abacus. A few minutes daily. Never feel too shy to learn.
