Hi. I read this article recently. It changed my perspective of approaching things. Just thought of sharing it with you! You won't regret for being here and reading this post of mine. Here comes my latest post..
Tarun belongs to a very rich family. He always spends lavishly on his father's money. One day, his father took him on a trip to the country side with the purpose of showing him how poor people live in poverty. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.
On their return from their trip, the father asked his son. "How was the trip Tarun? Did you enjoy?"
Tarun replied, "It was great, Dad"
"Did you see how poor people live?", the father asked.
"Oh yeah", said Tarun
"So, tell me, what you learned from the trip?", asked the father.
The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end… We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us; they have friends to protect them"
Tarun's father was speechless. He was really spellbound by his reply. He wanted him to learn about how people live without large amount of money! But he learnt something else.
Then his son added, "Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are"
Isn't perspective a wonderful thing?
It makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have
Appreciate and be thankful to every single thing you have and value every single relationship you have!!
My mom is incomparable. She taught me everything and its because of her, Now I tell everyone proudly, 'I am what I am'. I have the best dad who loves me irrespective of whatever mistakes I do. Though I Fight with my sister and shout at her, She is the best. I have a best set of friends who love me (Atleast to what I know, they like me). I thank the Almighty for all the best I have!
I believe in a proverb,"The pen is the tongue of the mind", hence i started writing. I can feel the difference in my style of writing from my first blog to this one! Its all because of my blogging buddies! I also thank you people for extending your appreciations you gave for all my writings till date.
I go with William Shakespeare in telling my thanks to everyone by quoting, "I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks"
