life

Do you ever wake up one morning and think what a life? Sometimes routine and the daily drudge of chores, monotonous schedules, pressures of work ,rigid commitmets all bog you down and the little pleasures in life pass by without us noticing them.You forget to hear the birds chirping, you fail to notice the sunrise and the beautiful sunset,you fail to notice that you are alive and well whilst other people in the world are living in stricken poverty and in fear of their lives.

Sometimes  the negatives in our lives tilt the scales causing an imbalance and over shadow the positives.I guess we all go through this at some stage of our lives and its no different that today I feel like this.I am sure it will pass and the small pleasures in life will soon be as important to me as they always have been.

I am sharing here a beautiful inspirational poem quoted by Mother Teresa  about life.

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty,
admire it.
Life is bliss,
taste it.
Life is a dream,
realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty,
complete it.
Life is a game,
play it.
Life is a promise,
fulfill it.
Life is sorrow,
overcome it.
Life is a song,
sing it.
Life is a struggle,
accept it.
Life is a tragedy,
confront it.
Life is an adventure,
dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious,
do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it…..

Mother Teresa

Why do we shout in anger??

angry-boss-shouting_cwa0027

  

A saint asked his disciples,

“Why do we shout in anger? Why do people shout at each other when they are upset?”
Disciples thought for a while, one of them said,

“Because we lose our calm, we shout because of that.”


“But, why do we shout when the other person is just next to you?” asked the saint. “Isn’t it possible to speak to him or her with a soft voice? Why do you shout at a person when you’re angry?”

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the saint. Finally he explained, “When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other through that great distance.”

 

Then the saint asked, “What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, why? It’s because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small…”


The saint continued, “When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper and they get even closer to each other in their love. Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other and that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.”

 

MORAL: When you argue do not let your hearts get distant, do not say words that distance each other more, else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.

ups and downs..

up-n-down1

Today I learn’t a very valueable lesson…..

Sometimes God seems to push us to our limits. He tests us beyond our endurance, this is because he has greater faith in us than we have in ourselves. Don’t try to question God for your sufferings and anguish, because  do you  ever question him for the reason of your happiness and fortune?

Each pearl is formed by an oyster’s internal response to a wound cause by an irritant, such as the grain of sand. The final result is a lustrous pearl. ….Something beautiful is created that would have been impossible without the wound.

So if you’re in pain…remember, no wounds no pearl. “Adversities are often blessings in disguise.”

All mornings are like a painting, you need a little inspiration to get you going, a little smile to brighten it and a message from someone who cares to colour your day.

Somebody made my day today just by smiling …..Life is short but a smile takes barely a second. Spread a smile and good cheer…

 

Hope all my friends have a good day today. Here is a smile for you…VVVVV

life is too short

grudges are a waste of perfect happiness

laugh when you can

apologise when you should

and let go of what you cant change…..

 

love deeply and forgive quickly

take chances and give everything

and have no regrets

life is too short to be unhappy

you have to take the good with the bad…..

 

smile when you are sad, love what you have got

and always remember what you had

always forgive never forget

learn from your mistakes but never regret

people change and things go wrong

but always remember life goes on…..
