If you have food in your fridge, clothes on your back, a roof over your head and a place to sleep,
You are richer than 75% of the world.

If you have money in the bank, your wallet, and some spare change,
You are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness,
You are more blessed than million people who will not survive this week.

If you have never experienced the danger of battle, the agony of imprisonment or torture, or the horrible pangs of starvation,
You are luckier than 500 million people alive and suffering.

If you can read this message,
You are more fortunate than 3 billion people in the world who cannot read it at all.

 

We all are blessed, aren’t we?

Give thanks for every little things or happy moments you are having now.

Let’s Live Life and Love Life together. Cheers!

Love People and Use Things

I am a mother of three 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 play time 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 right 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 deficient 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 asked the young lady behind the counter to give me two more breakfast meals on a separate tray. I then walked around the corner to the table that the men had chosen as a resting spot. I put the tray on the table and laid my hand on the blue eyed gentleman’s cold hand. He looked up at me, with tears in his eyes, and said, “Thank you.” I leaned over, began to pat his hand and said, “I did not do this for you. God is here working through me to give you hope.” I started to cry as I walked away to join my husband and son.

When I sat down my husband smiled at me and said, “That is why God gave you to me, Honey. To give me hope.” We held hands for a moment and at that time we knew that only because of the Grace that we had been given, were we able to give. We are not church goers, but we are believers. That day showed me the pure Light of God’s sweet love.

I returned to college, on the last evening of class, with this story in hand. I turned in “my project” and the instructor read it. Then she looked up at me and said, “Can I share this?” I slowly nodded as she got the attention of the class. She began to read and that is when I knew that we as human beings and being part of God, share this need to heal people and be healed.

In my own way I had touched the people at McDonald’s, my husband, son, instructor, and every soul that shared the classroom on the last night I spent as a college student.
I graduated with one of the biggest lessons I would ever learn:UNCONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE. Much love and compassion is sent to each and every person who may read this and learn how to LOVE PEOPLE AND USE THINGS~NOT LOVE THINGS AND USE PEOPLE.

We need to accept others in our life,

but it’s more important that we need to accept ourself for who we are.

The reason is, if we cannot accept our own self, then how can we accept others?

No one will truly know how to love others if the person don’t know how to love him/herself first.

The question is, why some of us don’t love or accept our own self?

Family background and attitude of a person play a vital role in answering the question above.

A child raised up from a broken family or a family without love and care, then the child probably will have problem in loving him/herself and others as well when he/she grown up.

An attitude of never satisfy and fear of losing anything will also push a person to not to love the things he/she is having now, and end up he/she loses everything, including their own self.

Hence, what are the solutions?

Since we can’t choose our family background, but we can choose our friends and attitude.

Try to make friend with those who are loving,caring and accepting you, and church would be a best place to go. We need to receive love continually in order to recover from past hurting. During the process, we will learn to accept ourself and start to learn to love others as well.

The same for those who are fear of losing anything, the reason why they fear is because they are insecure. They also need love, care and acceptance from friends in order to recover.

Let’s care, love and accept ourselves first, then we can only do the same way to others. And eventually the world will be a better place to live.

Pencil and Eraser: Parents and Children?

Pencil: I’m sorry

Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.

Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time.

Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone and you’ll replace me with a new one, I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.

I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, and become smaller / older, and eventually pass on. Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad. All my life, I’ve been the pencil. And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents getting smaller and smaller each day. For I know that one day, all that I’m left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have.

How fantastic the world would be if every person you meet is kind and friendly?

How wonderful the world would be if everyone shows mercy and grace?

How relaxing it is if everyone could slow down their pace, appreciate life and enjoy every little things in life?

How amazing it is if the rich will help the poor, the strong will protect the weak, and the people will love the people?

The world now has hit the demography of total 7 billions people, whom inhabited on almost every land of the earth.

WOW, you are not alone.

Everyday, there are 7 billions people striving hard to live a better life and future.

In fact, all of us are fighting battle in our life.

Some might fight to be free from poverty, starvation, slavery, war and injustice.

Some might fight to give a better future for themselves, their family, nation and the world.

Since we all are in the journey of fighting life together, why not we smile to the people we meet everyday, be kind to them, and to encourage them to continue on their life.

Love yourselves, and love others as yourselves.

How peaceful the world would be if we love each other, despite the differences?

The world need love, the love from everyone.

The question is, are you willing to love others?

LOVE.

Life is about getting up when being knocked down

Bringing a giraffe into the world is a tall order. A baby giraffe falls 10 feet from its mother’s womb and usually lands on its back. Within seconds it rolls over and tucks its legs under its body. From this position it considers the world for the first time and shakes off the last vestiges of the birthing fluid from its eyes and ears. Then the mother giraffe rudely introduces its offspring to the reality of life.

In his book, “A View from the Zoo”, Gary Richmond describes how a newborn giraffe learns its first lesson.

motivational
The mother giraffe lowers her head long enough to take a quick look. Then she positions herself directly over her calf. She waits for about a minute, and then she does the most unreasonable thing. She swings her long, pendulous leg outward and kicks her baby, so that it is sent sprawling head over heels.

When it doesn’t get up, the violent process is repeated over and over again. The struggle to rise is momentous. As the baby calf grows tired, the mother kicks it again to stimulate its efforts. Finally, the calf stands for the first time on its wobbly legs.

Then the mother giraffe does the most remarkable thing. She kicks it off its feet again. Why? She wants it to remember how it got up. In the wild, baby giraffes must be able to get up as quickly as possible to stay with the herd, where there is safety. Lions, hyenas, leopards, and wild hunting dogs all enjoy young giraffes, and they’d get it too, if the mother didn’t teach her calf to get up quickly and get with it.

The late Irving Stone understood this. He spent a lifetime studying greatness, writing novelized biographies of such men as Michelangelo, Vincent van Gogh, Sigmund Freud, and Charles Darwin.

Stone was once asked if he had found a thread that runs through the lives of all these exceptional people. He said, “I write about people who sometime in their life have a vision or dream of something that should be accomplished and they go to work.

“They are beaten over the head, knocked down, vilified, and for years they get nowhere. But every time they’re knocked down they stand up. You cannot destroy these people. And at the end of their lives they’ve accomplished some modest part of what they set out to do.”
