An Angel Wrote – Friendship

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head.

To handle others, use your heart.

Breakfast at McDonald’s

This is a good story and is true, please read it all the way through until the
end! (After the story, there are some very interesting facts!):

I am a mother of three (ages 14, 12, 3) and have recently completed my college
degree.

The last class I had to take was Sociology.

The teacher was absolutely inspiring with the qualities that I wish every
human being had been graced with.

Her last project of the term was called, ‘Smile.’

The class was asked to go out and smile at three people and document their
reactions.

I am a very friendly person and always smile at everyone and say hello anyway.
So, I thought this would be a piece of cake, literally.

Soon after we were assigned the project, my husband, youngest son, and I went
out to McDonald’s one crisp March morning.

It was just our way of sharing special playtime with our son.

We were standing in line, waiting to be served, when all of a sudden everyone
around us began to back away, and then even my husband did.

I did not move an inch… an overwhelming feeling of panic welled up inside of
me as I turned to see why they had moved.

As I turned around I smelled a horrible ‘dirty body’ smell, and there standing
behind me were two poor homeless men.

As I looked down at the short gentleman, close to me, he was ‘smiling.’

His beautiful sky blue eyes were full of God’s Light as he searched for
acceptance.

He said, ‘Good day’ as he counted the few coins he had been clutching.

The second man fumbled with his hands as he stood behind his friend. I
realized the second man was mentally challenged and the blue-eyed gentleman
was his salvation.

I held my tears as I stood there with them.

The young lady at the counter asked him what they wanted.

He said, ‘Coffee is all Miss’ because that was all they could afford. (If they
wanted to sit in the restaurant and warm up, they had to buy something. He
just wanted to be warm).

Then I really felt it – the compulsion was so great I almost reached out and
embraced the little man with the blue eyes. That is when I noticed all eyes in
the restaurant were set on me, judging my every action.

I smiled and Read the rest of this entry »

The A-Z Of Motivation

Pain may sometimes be the reason why
people change. Getting bad
grades make you realize that you need
to study. Debts remind you of
your inability to look for a source of
income. Being humiliated
gives you the `push’ to speak up and
fight for yourself to save your
face from the next embarrassment. It
may be a bitter experience, a
friend’s tragic story, a great movie,
or an inspiring book that will
help you to get up and get just the
right amount of motivation you
need in order to improve yourself.

With all the people trying to pull you
down and waiting for you to
fail, how can you stay motivated and
positive?

Try this A to Z of tips for motivation

A – Achieving your dreams. Avoid
negative people, things and places
because they will only drag you down.
Eleanor Roosevelt once
said, “The future belongs to those who
believe in the beauty of
their dreams.”

B – Believe in your self, and in what
you can do. Believe in your
possibilities and your dreams. Every
advancement of humankind has
taken place because someone believed
in themselves.

C – Consider all of the angles and
aspects of everything you
encounter, whether it is people or
situations. Motivation comes from
strength of purpose. Being able to see
both points of view will give
you more chance of being successful
and keeping those around you
motivated too.

D – Don’t give up and don’t give in.
Every successful person from J
K Rowling to Walt Disney to Sylvester
Stallone to Thomas Edison had
multiple failures before being
successful. Sometimes their failures
or rejections ran into the hundreds
before they achieved success.

E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need
money. Dance as if nobody’s
watching. Love as if you never cried.
Learn as if you’ll live
forever. Motivation takes place when
people are happy.

F – Family and Friends. Use your
family and friends to help you stay
motivated. The big football teams have
cheerleaders and fans to
encourage them. Your family and
friends can be your cheerleaders and
fans. Use them to keep you going when
you feel your motivation
drifting.

G – Give that little bit extra. Self
improvement happens everywhere
all the time, whether you are at home,
at work or at school. Anthony
Robbins tells us that the difference
in effort between excellent and
outstanding is miniscule, yet the
difference in rewards is massive.
Giving that little bit extra can put
you into the outstanding.

H – Hang on to your dreams. There may
be times when it looks bleak,
but hang on to your dreams. The night
is darkest just before the
dawn. It is at this moment that you
are closest to success and 95%
of people will give up. Push through
this moment and you’ll achieve
your dreams.

I – Ignore those who try to destroy
you. Don’t get involved in their
dramas or toxicity – just walk away.
Surround yourself with people
who will encourage and support you.
Remove those who want to pull
you down and watch you fail from your
life. You’ll find it much
easier to stay motivated.

J – Joy and gratitude. Perhaps two of
the fundamentals for
motivation and success is to be joyful
in what you do and grateful
for what you have.

K – Keep pushing forwards no matter
how hard life may seem. In the
toughest moments you can choose to
move forwards or to run away.
It’s your decision – one path brings
you closer to the success, the
other takes you away from it. Which do
you want to follow?

L – Learn to love your self. This
isn’t as easy as it sounds for
most people, but by loving yourself
you will be happier and more
motivated because you will believe you
deserve what you achieve.

M – Make things happen. Motivation and
success doesn’t come from
sitting in front of the television
drinking coke and eating pizza.
Take action and you’ll achieve your
dreams.

N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always
play a fair game. At the end
of the day, if you live a dishonest
life, it will come back to you.
Living an honest, fair life allows you
to be proud of what you do.

O – Open your eyes. Everyone has a set
of blinkers that they wear
and see everything through them, i.e.
how they would like things to
be. Look at life with open eyes and
see things how they are, and see
them how you want them to be. Then
take action to make it happen.

P – Practice makes perfect. The more
you practice, the better you
become. A top sportsman doesn’t reach
their status through a single
practice or game. They practice harder
and longer than anyone else,
and as such, are rewarded more than
anyone else.

Q – Quitters never win. And winners
never quit. So, which do you
want to be?

R – Ready yourself. Always be ready to
take advantage of the
opportunities and situations presented
to you. Prepare in advance,
and ignore the voice telling you to
put it off until tomorrow.
Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah
built the ark!

S – Stop procrastinating. You can put
it all off until tomorrow, but
one day there will be no more
tomorrows. Start procrastinating about
procrastinating and do tomorrows jobs
today.

T – Take control of your life.
Discipline and self control are
synonymous with motivation. So many
people believe their lives are
out of their control. Look at your
life in detail and you’ll
discover you have more areas under
your control than you think.

U – Understand others. If you know
very well how to talk, you should
also learn how to listen. You have two
ears and one mouth for a
reason. Understand others and strive
to be understood.

V – Visualise it. Your sub-conscious
knows no difference between
your imagination and reality, so if
you rehearse your success in
your mind, then your sub-conscious
will believe in it and make it
happen.

W – Want it more than anything. Every
successful person has had a
burning desire to achieve their goals.
The Wright brothers didn’t
invent the aeroplane because there was
nothing on the television.
They had a burning desire to succeed
and kept going, even in the
face of setbacks.

X – X Factor is what will make you
different from the others. When
you are motivated, you tend to put
on “extras” on your life like
extra time for family, extra help at
work, extra care for friends.
This X-Factor sets you aside from the
crowd and marks you out for
success.

Y – You are unique. No one in this
world looks, acts, thinks or
talks like you. Value your unique
gifts, whatever they are and use
them for your success.

Z – Zero in on your dreams and make it
happen!!!

Touching Story

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay,
for his hungry stomach, decided he would ask for a meal at the next
house.

On the way through school, he found he had only one thin dime left
and he was very hungry.

However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the
door.Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.

The woman thought he looked hungry, so brought him a large glass of
milk.

He drank it slowly, and then asked, ‘How much do I owe you?’ ‘You
don’t owe me anything,’ she replied. ‘Mother has taught us,never to
accept pay for a kindness.’

He said…’Then I thank you from my heart.’

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill.
The local doctors were baffled.They finally sent her to the big
city,where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light
filled his eyes.

Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her
room.Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her.He
recognized her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to
save her life,from that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the
business office to pass the final bill to him for approval.

He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was
sent to her room.

The woman feared opening it, for she was sure it would take the
rest of her life to pay for it all.

Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side
of the bill. She read these words…
‘Paid in full with one glass of milk.’ Signed, Dr.Howard Kelly.

Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed: Thank You,
God,that Your love has spread abroad through human hearts and
hands.’

15 Impact of Attitude on our LIFE, DUTY and much more

The longer I live, the more I realize
the impact of attitude on LIFE.

Attitude to me, is more important than
facts.

It is more important than the past,
than education, than MONEY, than
circumstance , than failure, than
successes, than what other people
think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance,
gifte dness or skill.

It will make or break a company….. a
temple…..a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a
choice every day regarding the
attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past…..

we cannot change the fact that people
will act in a certain way.

We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on
the one string we have, and that is
our attitude…..

I am convinced that life is 10% what
happens to me and 90% how I react to
it.

And so it is with you…..we are in
charge of our Attitudes.

why we celebrate diwali?

Diwali or Deepavali is amongst the
most celebrated Indian festivals. The
word Deepavali originates from two
Sanskrit words ‘Deepa’ which
means ‘light’ and ‘Avali’ which
means ‘a row’. This is why Deepavali
is called ‘the festival of lights’.

It is celebrated on the 15th day of
the Hindu month of Kartik which is a
new moon day (Amavasya). Deepavali is
celebrated by lighting diyas (earthen
lamps), drawing rangolis
(multico loured designs drawn on the
ground with coloured rice flour),
cleaning and decoration of homes,
wearing new clothes, preparation of
sweets in homes, lighting of
fireworks, veneration of cows as
incarnations of Goddess Lakshmi
(Goddess of wealth) and Lakshmi Puja.

There are two main mythological
stor ies that signify the importance of
Deepavali. The first story is that
Deepavali denotes the return of Lord
Rama’s return from exile after his
victorious conquest of the evil king
Ravana. This story has greater
significa nce in Northern India. In
Southern India, Deepavali marks the
victory of Lord Krishna over the
mighty asura (demon) Narakasura.
Narak asura had become a menace to the
gods in heaven and had snatched the
magnificent earrings of Aditi (the
Mother Goddess) and imprisoned sixteen
thousand daughters of the gods in his
harem. In desperation, the gods led by
Indra requested Lord Krishna to
destroy the demon as he was wreaking
havoc. Krishna readily agreed, fought
a fierce battle and emerged
victoriou s. It was after this that He
accepted the sixteen thousand damsels
as his wives at their request.

The meaning behind these mythological
stor ies is that the villain of the
piece represents the desire-ridden
ego . In our lives, it is our egos and
desires that create problems for us.
In the story of Lord Krishna above,
the sixteen thousand damsels represent
our numerous desires. When they are
controlled by our egos, they cause
destruction and rob us of our joy.
However, when we work selflessly,
dedic ating our actions to a higher
goal, the desires remain in check, and
most importantly, get sublimated. Each
one of us has positive and negative
tendenci es. When we identify with the
good in us, work towards something
beyond our selfish interests the
lower, negative tendencies fade away.
Our desires get sublimated and through
constant sadhana (spiritual practice)
we overcome our ego and desires. The
darkness of ego and desire are
banished, replaced by the light of
wisdom. Knowledge that we are not
incomplete and limited as we think
ourselves to be. But that we are that
Divine Self that is free and
independent of all the world has to
offer.

The scented bath by pouring gingerly
oil from your head until your legs and
washing your hair with “shikakai”
powder before the break of dawn and
the cleaning of homes during Deepavali
signify the cleansing of the
personality of desires and ego. The
new clothes represent our newly
acquired state of Realisation or at a
more basic level our new spiritual
orienta tion and commitment to self-
development . This change brings
sweetness in our lives which is why
sweets are made and distributed in the
community. It represents the fact that
once we turn spiritual and begin
looking within, we experience a quiet
sense of peace that we cannot
experience while chasing objects of
the world.

Thus Deepavali or Diwali has a
tremendous spiritual significance in
our lives. And like all our festivals,
they are reminders for us to retain
and cultivate that spiritual element
in our lives. Because life is more
than just a journey, it is a search
for meaning.
