The way to Happiness

Hello everybody, how are you all doing? It’s been sometime since I last posted in the blog. I was as busy as it gets in the last few weeks and I am glad that I have a break from the monotonous routine even though it won’t last long. In this New Year, as a new beginning, I thought of starting a new series of posts themed “The way to be Happy”.

Happiness, for almost everybody, is the ultimate goal of their lives despite the fact that they might be having various types of professions or life styles. Happiness itself differs from person to person, one might be happy from just a wish of a warm Good Morning by a stranger in a gloomy day, another person might not be content even if he has the most expensive gift he always wanted. It takes a lot of strength to be happy and content with what we have in our lives, as having a mind is to think and that thinking might lead to more and more ideals even of one achieved a lifelong goal.

Happiness is one of those rare things in life that multiplies with every time you share it. Don’t forget to share the happiness!

The Mother, the daughter and the map

A Mother was reading a magazine and her cute little daughter every now and then distracted her.
To keep her busy, she tore one page on which was printed the map of the world. She tore it into pieces and asked her to go to her room and put them together to make the map again.

She was sure her daughter would take a lot more time and probably whole of day to get it done.
But the little one came back within minutes with a perfect map.

When she asked how she could do it so quickly, she said,

“Oh Mom, there is a man’s face on the other side of the paper. I made the face perfect to get the map right.” she ran outside to play leaving the mother surprised.

Moral : Perhaps there is always the other side to whatever you experience in this world.

This story indirectly teaches a lesson.That is:

Whenever we come across a challenge or a puzzling situation, Look at the other side Will be surprised to see an easy way to tackle the problem or an acute difficulty.
We are all explorers

Pick Up in the Rain

One night, at 11:30 PM, an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car. A young white man stopped to help her – generally unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s.

The man took her to safety, helped her get assistance and put her into a taxi cab. She seemed to be in a big hurry! She wrote down his address, thanked him and drove away.

Seven days went by and a knock came on the man’s door. To his surprise, a giant gift was delivered to his home. A special note was attached. It read: “Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only my clothes but my spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying husband’s bedside just before he passed away. God bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving others.”

Offer help to anyone who needs it.
Thank others for helping you.
If you help someone. Someone will help you but don’t expect anything in return by helping.
Treat people the way you want them to treat you.

Have a great day!

Stop being Judgmental

This is from an email I received, you all probably must have read it before but again I thought of sharing it as it gives a message for us to think twice before judging someone without stepping in to his shoes.

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call ASAP, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block.

He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”

“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank God! Your son is saved!”

And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

NEVER JUDGE ANYONE because you never know how their life is and as to what is happening or what they’re going through.
