Live Life to the fullest!
Have you ever wonder how to change the world?
Are you happy to dwell in the pattern of this world?
Sincerely, I dislike the pattern of this world.
I prefer mutualism than individualism.
I prefer open-minded than narrow-minded.
I prefer sincerity than pretence.
I prefer simple heart than impure heart.
I prefer truth than lies.
I prefer honest than shrewd.
I prefer kind than cruel.
I prefer good than evil.
I prefer optimistic than pessimistic.
I prefer love than hatred.
and I believe LOVE is the solution to solve and change the pattern of this world.
Firstly, we ourselves need to have love inside our heart.
Then only we can instil the love among the people around us, gradually impact on them and they will choose to love eventually.
Though we may get discouraged during the way of instilling the love, we gotta persevere and keep on sowing the seed of love among the people around us, because you never know one day the seed of love in them will grow more abundant and impact more people than you.
Just imagine, if you start to sow the seed of love to a person, then the person sow the seed to another person, and the process continue on and the effect will be amazingly powerful.
How wonderful it is if the world is filled with love?
Hence, start from today, sow the seed of love to your friends or family members and consistently water them, you shall see the abundance and fruitfulness in your life, and the pattern of this world will be changed eventually.

A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree.
A little boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He climbed to the tree top, ate the apples, took a nap under the shadow… He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him. Time went by… the little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree everyday.
One day, the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad. “Come and play with me,” the tree asked the boy. I am no longer a kid, I don’t play around trees any more.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” Sorry, but I don’t have money… but you can pick all my apples and sell them. So, you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily. The boy never came back after he picked that apples. The tree was sad.
One day, the boy returned and the tree was so excited. “Come and play with me” the tree said. “I don’t have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?” “Sorry, but I don’t have a house. But you can chop off my branches to build your house.” So the boy cut all the branches of the tree and left happily. The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy never came back since then. The tree was again lonely and sad.
One hot summer day, the boy returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” the tree said. I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my truck to build your boat. You can sail far away and be happy.” So the boy cut the tree truck to make a boat. He went sailing and never showed up for a long time.
Finally, the boy returned after he left for so many years. “Sorry, my boy. But I don’t have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you… “the tree said.
“I don’t have teeth to bite” the boy replied. “No more truck for you to climb on” “I am too old for that now” the boy said. “I really can’t give you anything … the only thingleft is my dying roots” the tree said with tears. “I don’t need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years.” The boy replied. “Good! Old tree roots is the best place to lean on and rest. Come, Come sit down with me and rest.”
The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears…….
This is a story of everyone. The tree is our parent. When we were young, we loved to play with Mom and Dad…
When we grown up, we left them… only came to them when we need something or when we are in trouble.No matter what, parents will always be there and give everything they could to make you happy.
You may think the boy is cruel to the tree but that’s how all of us are treating our parent.
Please enlighten all you friend by forward this to them. And love your parent.
Roman philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca observed,” Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.”
Hence, we always have the opportunity to lift others up everyday.
The question is, when is the last time you lifted others up?
Just now?this morning?yesterday?last week?or never?
The world need the spirit of lifting others up desperately, as one who lifted others up, he/she will be lifted up as well.
Here’s a quote:” I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
People who lift others don’t wait until tomorrow or some other “better” day to help people. They act now!
Even for the enemy of ours, we still can say a word of kindness and praise to lift them up.
Everyone is capable of becoming a person who lifts up others. you don’t have to be rich. You don’t have to be a genius. you don’t have to have it all together.
Don’t let another day go by without lifting up the people in your life. Doing that will positively change the relationship you already have and open you up to many more.
Let’s Live Life & Love Life together. Cheers!
Jerry is the manager of a restaurant in America. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would always reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!”
Many of the waiters at his restaurant quit their jobs when he changed jobs so they could follow him around from restaurant to restaurant. The reason the waiters followed Jerry was because of his attitude. He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was always there, telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.
Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him, “I don’t get it! No one can be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?”
Jerry replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood I always choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or I can choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it. Everytime someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I always choose the positive side of life.”
“But it’s not always that easy,” I protested.
“Yes, it is,” Jerry said “Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice.You choose how you react to situations You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. It’s your choice how you live your life.”
Several years later, I heard that Jerry accidentally did something you are never supposed to do in the restaurant business: left the back door of his restaurant open one morning and was robbed by three armed men. While trying to open the safe, his hand, shaking from nervousness slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.
Luckily, Jerry was found quickly and rushed to the hospital.
After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body. I saw Jerry aboutsix months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Want to see my scars?” I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place.
“The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door,” Jerry replied. “Then, after they shot me, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or choose to die. I chose to live.”
“Weren’t you scared?” I asked.
Jerry continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me. I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the Emergency Room and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read ‘He’s a dead man.’ I knew I need to take action.”
“What did you do?” I asked.
“Well, there was a big nurse shouting questions at me,” said Jerry. “She asked if I was allergic to anything.”
‘Yes,’ I replied.
The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, ‘Bullets!’ Over their laughter, I told them, ‘I am choosing to live. Please operate on me as if I am alive, not dead’.”
Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude. I learned from him that every day you have the choice to either enjoy your life or to hate it. The only thing that is truly yours that no one can control or take from you is your attitude, so if you can take care of that, everything else in life becomes much easier.
I like children, not because of their cuteness, but for they have a pure and simple heart.
I like to see their smile, sincerely from their heart.
I like to see how they talk and react, because every word and act are came from their first thought, without complexity.
I like the way they think, for they don’t know the evil thought.
In the eyes of a child there is joy, there is laughter.
There is hope, there is trust, a chance to shape the future.
The more maturity we grow, the harder we find joy and simplicity.
The more knowledge we possess, the higher ego in us.
The more materialistic we are, the deeper emptiness in our heart.
Hence, let’s us learn from children, the pure heart, simplicity, honesty, joyfulness, trust, hope and etc.
For the lessons of life there is no better teacher than the look in the eyes of a child.
Let’s Live Life and Love Life together! Cheers!
