Nice Poem.....

Recently I came across these beautiful lines. Here it goes.....

a> Watch your Thoughts, they become words.

Watch your Words, they become actions.

Watch your Actions, they become habits.

Watch your Habits, they become character.

Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny.

The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settle for.

Life is like melted butter.. once things cool down, it can be reshaped!

Long ago there was a master and disciple who used live in the forest, 10 miles from the city. Their dwellings was a small hut right in the middle of the forest. Every morning they used to come to the city, help people, do a lot of service and at dusk leave back for jungle. This went on for a long time. One fine day when they were in the city heavy rains lashed the area, there were strong gusts of wind and the it rained cats and dogs. By the time they reached home (in the jungle) it was dark. The rain was still pouring, and when they came near the hut, most of it was destroyed by the ferocious storm.

Seeing this the disciple was furious and very angry. He started shouting at the master "You say that God is there to protect us; this is what your God is. It could not even save a small hut which was the only place for us to stay".

The master looked at the disciple; paused for a moment and smiled. He said " I am so grateful to God, that he saved half of the hut even in this fierce storm. The weather was so bad that even the whole hut could have been destroyed, but thank God you took so much care and saved half of it. We still have a shelter, in this inclement weather".

Moral of the story is - we should be grateful to all the things life has offered us. Usually we take a lot things for granted. Find every little opportunity to be grateful and you will see a tremendous transformation in the quality of your life. Usually, instead of using every opportunity to be grateful, we do the opposite and we grab every opportunity to Grumble.....-:)

Chew on this for some time....

Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight;

Just remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.

Should you find yourself stuck in traffic; don't despair.

There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work;

Think of the man who has been out of work for the last three months.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad;

Think of the person who has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.


Should you grieve the passing of another weekend;

Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week, to feed her family.


Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance;

Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.


Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror;

Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.


Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking "what is my purpose";

Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.


Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities;

Remember, things could be worse. You could be them!!!


Should you decide to tell the above to a friend;...---:))

You might brighten someone's day!

If we see life this way I don't think there is anything to complain about...,-:)
