  • Re : A Touching Article on Life and Recession

    9 short stories with deep meanings. Read slooowly
    1) She was very excited
    today, as the
    school was re-opening
    after a long summer
    break. Now, once
    again, she could start
    selling stationery at
    the traffic signal to
    feed her family.
    2) She, a renowned artist
    and a strict mother,
    often scolded her 6-
    year-old son for he
    could never draw a
    line straight. As he
    breathed slowly into
    the ventilator, she
    begged him to make
    one more crooked line
    on the ECG.
    3) "Everyone goes with
    the flow… but the one
    who goes against it
    becomes someone
    remarkable.” Before I
    could explain this to
    the traffic police, the
    man issued me a fine.
    4) Their love was
    different. She was
    happy every time he
    kicked her in the
    stomach. Every time
    he kicked she loved
    him more. She waited
    for the time she would
    hold her baby for the
    first time.
    5) They took his father,
    and only returned a
    flag.
    6) At 25, I became a
    mother of one; at 27 I
    became a mother of
    two; and today, at 55, I
    have become a
    mother of three! My
    son got married today,
    and brought home his
    wife!
    7) “Born to rich parents,
    this boy is so lucky,”
    exclaimed the
    neighbors!
    Somewhere in
    heaven, three unborn
    sisters cried.
    8) “You ruined my career,
    I was supposed to be
    an Executive Director,”
    she thought to
    herself. The little
    angel held her finger
    tightly and she forgot
    everything; A mother
    was born.
    9) Once a 5-year-old boy
    was standing
    barefoot in the
    shallow water of the
    ocean. He was
    repeating the same
    sentence to the
    waves – “Even if you
    touch my feet a
    thousand times, I
    won’t forgive you for
    taking my parents
    away.

      I asked a friend who has crossed 70 & is heading towards 80 what sort of changes he is feeling in himself? He sent me the following:
      1 After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself.
      2 I have realized that I am not “Atlas”. The world does not rest on my shoulders.
      3 I have stopped bargaining with vegetable & fruit vendors. A few pennies more is not going to break me, but it might help the poor fellow save for his daughter’s school fees.
      4 I leave my waitress a big tip. The extra money might bring a smile to her face. She is toiling much harder for a living than I am.
      5 I stopped telling the elderly that they've already narrated that story many times. The story makes them walk down memory lane & relive their past.
      6 I have learned not to correct people even when I know they are wrong. The onus of making everyone perfect is not on me. Peace is more precious than perfection.
      7 I give compliments freely & generously. Compliments are a mood enhancer not only for the recipient, but also for me. And a small tip for the recipient of a compliment, never, NEVER turn it down, just say "Thank You.”
      8 I have learned not to bother about a crease or a spot on my shirt. Personality speaks louder than appearances.
      9 I walk away from people who don't value me. They might not know my worth, but I do.
      10 I remain cool when someone plays dirty to outrun me in the rat race. I am not a rat & neither am I in any race.
      11 I am learning not to be embarrassed by my emotions. It’s my emotions that make me human.
      12 I have learned that it's better to drop the ego than to break a relationship. My ego will keep me aloof, whereas with relationships, I will never be alone.
      13 I have learned to live each day as if it's the last. After all, it might be the last.
      14 I am doing what makes me happy. I am responsible for my happiness, and I owe it to myself. Happiness is a choice. You can be happy at any time, just choose to be!
      I decided to share this for all my friends. Why do we have to wait to be 60 or 70 or 80, why can't we practice this at any stage and age?

      I borrowed this. I don't know who to credit it to, but thank you!

        STAY CONNECTED
        ​When I'm dead.....,​
        ​Your tears will flow,..​
        ​But I won't know...​
        ​Cry with me now instead!​
        ​You'll forget my faults,....​
        ​But I won't know.....​
        ​Forget them now, instead you'll wish...​
        ​You could have spent more time with me,...​
        ​Spend it now instead!​
        ​When you hear I'm gone, you'll find your way to my house to pay condolence but we haven't even spoken in years....​
        ​Pls look for me now!!​
        ​''Spend time with every person around you, and help them with whatever you have to make them happy!! your friends, acquaintance and family.....​
        ​Make them feel Special. Because you never know when time will take them away from you forever''..​
        ​Love all and Forgive all.​

        ​No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That's the spirit of​
        FORGIVENESS.

        ​Even though the eyes don't see each other, they see things together, blink simultaneously and cry together.​
        That's "UNITY."

        ​May we practise the spirit of forgiveness and togetherness.​

        1. Alone I can 'Say' but together we can 'Talk'.

        2. ​Alone I can 'Enjoy' but together we can 'Celebrate'

        3. ​Alone I can 'Smile' but together we can 'Laugh'_

        ​That's the BEAUTY of Relations.
        We are nothing without each other​
        STAY CONNECTED!!
        ​The razor blade is sharp but can't cut a tree; the axe is strong but can't cut hair finely as we'd need

        ​Everyone is important according to his/her unique purpose.
        Never look down on others unless you are admiring their shoes​
