Another interesting article by an unknown author. Hope it will be of interest to you all.
It's another morning.... I have to go to office. WHAT???? This is me!!! I shouted seeing my pic in the news paper. But what the HELL is it doing in the obituary column??
One sec... Let me think, last night when I went to bed I had severe pain in my chest, but I don't remember anything after that, I think I had sound sleep.
Its morning now, oh... It's already 10:00 AM, where is my coffee? I will be late for office and my boss will get a chance to shout at me.
Where is everyone? I screamed.
"I think there is a crowed outside my room, let me check." I said to myself.
So many people... Not all of them are crying. But why are some of them crying.
WHAT IS THIS??? I m lying there on a bed in the drawing room!!!!
"I AM HERE. I shouted!!! No one listened.
"LOOK I AM NOT DEAD. I screamed once again!!! No one was interested in me.
They were all looking at me lying on the bed.
I went back to my bed room.
"Am I dead??" I asked myself.
Where are my wife, my children, my mom-dad, my friends?
I found them in the next room, all of them were crying. Still trying to console each other.
My wife was crying. She was really looking sad.
My little kid was not sure what happened, but he was crying just coz his mom was sad.
How can I go without telling my kid that I really love him, I really do care for him....??
How can I go without telling my wife that she is really the most beautiful and the most caring wife in this world..??
How can I go without telling my parents that I am what I am just because of them...??
How can I go without telling my friends that without them, perhaps I would have?
Done wrong things in life- thanks for being there always
When I needed them. And sorry for not being there when they really needed me..
I can see a person standing in the corner and trying to hide his tears. Oh, he was once my best friend, but a small misunderstanding made us part, and we both never let go off our egos.....
I went there.. And offered him my hand, "Dear friend. I just want to say sorry for everything, we r still good friends, please forgive me."
No response from other side, what the hell?? He is still preserving his ego, I am saying sorry. even then!!! I really don't care for such people.
But one sec.. It seems he is not able to see me!!!! He did not see my extended hand.
My goodness. AM I REALLY DEAD???
I just sat down next to MYSELF; I also felt like crying.
I just want to tell my wife, my parents, my kid and my friends how much I love them.
My wife entered the room, she looks beautiful.
"YOU R BEAUTIFUL" I shouted.
She didn't hear my words, in fact she has never heard these words from me coz I have never told her.
"GOD!!!!" I screamed. a little more time plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.. I cried.
One more chance please-to hug my child, to make my mom smile.. just once, to make my dad feel proud of me at least for a moment...., to say sorry to my friends for everything I have not told and done for them-inspite of that for still being there for me..
Then I looked up and cried!!!!
I shouted..
"You shouted in your sleep," said my wife as she gently woke me up. "Did you have a nightmare?"
I was sleeping..??!!!
Oh that was just a dream..??!!
My wife was there. She could hear me.
This was the happiest moment in my life!!
I hugged her and whispered.. "U R THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND CARING WIFE IN
I just couldnt understand that in spite of a smile on her face she had tears in her eyes...

I was so HAPPY!!!!!
It's not late.. Forget your egos, forget all that has happened....., and just express your love to others.... Be friendly..... Keep smiling and be happy for ever.

A lecturer was giving a lecture to his student on stress management.

He raised a glass of water and asked the audience, "How heavy do you think this glass of water is?"

The students' answers ranged from 20g to 500gm.

"It does not matter on the absolute weight. It depends on how long you hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it's OK.

If I hold it for an hour, I will have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you will have to call an ambulance.

It is the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."

"If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, we will not be able to carry on, the burden becoming increasingly heavier."

"What you have to do is to keep the glass down, rest for a while before holding it up again."

We have to put down the burden periodically, so that we can be refreshed and are able to carry on.

So before you return home from work tonight, put the burden of work down.

Don't carry it back home. You can pick it up tomorrow.

Life is short, enjoy it


A parable is told of a farmer who owned an old mule. The mule fell into the farmer's well. The farmer heard the mule 'braying' - or - whatever mules do when they fall into wells. After carefully assessing the situation, the farmer sympathized with the mule, but decided that neither the mule nor the well was worth the trouble of saving. Instead, he called his neighbours together and told them what had happened...and enlisted them to help haul dirt to bury the old mule in the well and put him out of his misery.

Initially, the old mule was hysterical! But as the farmer and his neighbours continued shovelling and the dirt hit his back...a thought struck him. It suddenly dawned on him that every time a shovel load of dirt landed on his back...HE SHOULD SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP! This he did, blow after blow.

"Shake it off and step up...shake it off and step up...shake it off and step up!" he repeated to encourage himself. No matter how painful the blows, or distressing the situation seemed the old mule fought "panic" and just kept right on SHAKING IT OFF AND STEPPING UP!

You're right! It wasn't long before the old mule, battered and exhausted, STEPPED TRIUMPHANTLY OVER THE WALL OF THAT WELL! What seemed like it would bury him, actually blessed him...all because of the manner in which he handled his adversity.

THAT'S LIFE! If we face our problems and respond to them positively, and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness, or self-pity...THE ADVERSITIES THAT COME ALONG TO BURY US USUALLY HAVE WITHIN THEM THE POTENTIAL TO BENEFIT AND BLESS US! Remember that FORGIVENESS--FAITH--PRAYER-- PRAISE and HOPE...all are excellent ways to "SHAKE IT OFF AND STEP UP" out of the wells in which we find ourselves!
