One morning Stanley’s day got spoilt completely as it started with a burnt toast that his beloved Mother served him at breakfast. He asked her in a not so kind tone, “Mom I have always boasted about your culinary skills to all my friends, then tell me dear Mom, why today, this burnt toast that you have served me for breakfast.” She did not say anything but went about her work. But since he was getting late to go to work, Stanley picked up the burnt toast and most unwillingly took it along with him.
Looking at the burnt toast he did not feel like eating it at all and threw it out of his car in a most rude manner. To his surprise he saw one poor lady coming with a small child, picked up the burnt toast, cleaned it, brushed the dirt stuck on the toast and lovingly fed the child who was in tattered and dirty clothes, playing with her ragdoll. Seeing this, Stanley was actually ashamed of himself and his bad behavior.
He immediately parked his car at the side, bought some milk, toast and bread and gave it lovingly to the small child and her mother who willingly accepted giving him a broad smile. She further said, “Thank you son, you are a God send to us. We have not eaten anything from two days.” Stanley, had tears in his eyes and also felt so pleased that he could help these poor souls. He decided there and then to never hurt his loving mother and to be grateful and respect her for whatever food she serves whether it is palatable or not.
He further said to himself that he would never ever waste food, however rich he was, as this was not a good habit at all. God had been so benevolent to him and he had never gone hungry to bed in his entire life. There are so many needy people in the World who do not even have a morsel to eat and here he was given everything and was wasting and throwing the food that was not made nicely by his mom.
Henceforth, he decided that he would teach everyone this important aspect of being compassionate towards the needy and he will never forget that little child he saw happily eating a burnt toast. Water, food, air, clothes are so important and valuable to the poor and why must we who have been given luxuries in life throw away because of a simple toast that got burned.
Humanity is greater than wealth. Let us learn to be humble and kind to others. Sometimes what looks like an obstacle in your path is actually a gift meant to move you in a different direction.
LET US ALL BE SELFLESS AND WORK TOWARDS SELFLESSNESS.IT IS IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE SO MUCH LOVE AND HAPPINESS.
One sparkling smile can bring a friendship to blossom
One helpful hand can lift a soul out of misery
One constructive word can frame the goal of life
One word of cheeriness can bring so much joy
One candle lit with an intent that can wipe out darkness
One uproarious laughter can conquer gloom
One gentle touch can show you care
One look of compassion can relax the weary traveler
One honest deed can dissolve years of mistrust
One life can make a difference to someone
One loving gesture can work wonder
One happy moment can wipe out all your pains
Be that one noble person today who can bring so much pleasure and cheerfulness to a hungry, confused Soul who is in need of loving-kindness, care and compassion. Let us put Love in everything that we do. Serve others with a Grateful Heart and always Believe that a bit of Miracle is waiting for us somewhere behind the radiant Sunlight.
Today, my father told me, “Just go for it and give it a try! You do not have to be a professional to build a successful product. Be motivated and courageous. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic.”
THE POWER OF UNIQUENESS:
Today, I asked my mentor, a very successful businessman in his 70’s, what his top three tips are for success. He smiled and said, “Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking and do something no one else is doing.
Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I am working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said: “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile and at peace with yourself.”
TRY AND YOU SHALL KNOW:
When I was 8 years old, I wanted to play baseball. I asked my father, “Dad can I play baseball?” He said, “You will never know until you try.” When I was a teenager, I asked him, “Dad can I become a surgeon?” He replied, “Son, you will never know until you try.” Today I am a surgeon, just because I tried and listened to the encouraging words of my father.
GOODNESS & GRATITUDE:
Today, after a 72-hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I did not recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the sincerest smile and said, “On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center. I wanted to say thank you for saving my life.”
A DOOR CLOSES TO OPEN ANOTHER:
Today at 7 a.m., I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3 p.m., I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted for a while and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.
Today, as my father, three brothers and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, “I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often.”There were tears rolling down our cheeks and we all realized the importance of being connected with family and friends.
Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, “Why?” she replied, “So you can help me save the planet.” I chuckled again and asked, “And why do you want to save the planet?” “Because that is where I keep all my stuff” she said.
Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining and crying for what I have not got in my life and start celebrating it again.
Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving, he said, “I hope you feel better soon.”
When you ask for the GOOD in others you DISCOVER the BEST in yourself too. We do not need everything to enjoy life. We already have LIFE to enjoy everything. Everything has been given to us. Let us make others happy. REAL HAPPINESS LIES IN MAKING OTHERS HAPPY AND JOYOUS.
