Each Day Is A Gift

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.
After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready.

As she manoeuvred her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. "I love it," she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.

"Mrs. Jones, you haven't seen the room .... just wait."
"That doesn't have anything to do with it," she replied. "Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn't depend on how the furniture is arranged, it's how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It's a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice; I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I'll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I've stored away, just for this time in my life."

She went on to explain, "Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you've put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories Thank you for your part in filling my memory bank. I am still depositing."
And with a smile, she said, "remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred.

2. Free your mind from worries.

3. Live simply.

4. Give more.

5. Expect less."

Do It Now

The best day to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the next best day is today. This is Chinese proverb, author unknown. We always regret about what we have not done and not able to do. Don’t worry about all those stuff, try to do it today.

Catch People When They Do Right

The statement seems to be odd, we always try to catch people when they do something wrong. Our mind is always tuned in such a way. Most often we will not tolerate if someone else make any mistake. But never bother to appreciate a person when he does something good. Don’t feel anything bad to appreciate a person who has done something good. Go directly to him appreciate about the good things he or she has done. Don’t bother what others thing when you believe the action is right.

But in our busy life often we will not get time to do small deeds which are big to others. The appreciation will not take much time and there is no need to take much time to do it. And sometimes the person at the receiving side too may be busy. Even if the action is for less than a minute and we are able to convey what we meant precisely and directly the receiver will never forget it.

So stop for a while, catch people when they do right, appreciate. Because smaller things often makes others happy than the bigger ones.

Have The Courage to Say No

Believe Yourself

"If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning."

"Believing in yourself is not for you; it's for every person who has touched your life in a significant way and for every person your life will touch the same way five minutes from now, or five centuries from now."
Jaye Miller

"You are in charge of your feelings, beliefs, and actions. And you teach others how to behave toward you. While you cannot change other people, you can influence them through your own behaviors and actions. By being a living role model of what you want to receive from others, you create more of what you want in your life."
Eric Allenbaugh

"One person with a belief is equal to ninety-nine who have only interests."
John Stuart Mill

"Don't let go of your dreams. If you have determination and belief in your dreams, you will succeed in spite of your desire to let go."
