A Cute Story To Know Self - Good Morning !!

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?"

Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this." 

He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he replied, "what if I do this?" He dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we  make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. 

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by ...WHO WE ARE.

You are special - don't ever forget it."

A Beautiful Morning Poem For A Friend !!

I gaze outside my window
sipping morning tea
squirrels running, playing
frolic so carefree

I see the rays of sunshine
reminded of your smile
looking toward the heavens
thankful all the while

Smelling fresh bloomed roses
moist with morning dew
reminded of the beauty
that grows inside of you

The birds are chirping softly
on this early morn
pretending we're together
fills my heart with song

Thoughts of you this morning
have brightened up my day
know how much I love you
although you're far away

So many miles between us
in my heart I keep you near
gazing out the window
wishing you were here

Missing U Friend !!

Enjoy the Flight Of the Day !!

Every sunset gives us one day to live but
Every sunrise gives us one day more to pray.
And my prayer is that you are safe and happy.

A good plan of today is better that a great plan of tomorrow.
Look backward with satisfaction and look forward with confidence.

Having someone to remember is pleasing enough to the heart,
It doesn't matter if you only message me once in a while,
what matter is you remember me.

Let your morning be like a plane ride :
God as your pilot
Dreams as your wings
Hope as your fuel
Love as your engine
Friends as your crew
Faith as your safety belt and
Happiness as your passenger
I wish you a beautiful journey.

Special Morning Message !!

Avoid the phrase: I have to go to work

This article has to do with six of the most common words in the English language: “I have to go to work.” 

In all probability, it’s absolutely true that you do “have to” got to work. Nevertheless, these particular words carry with them some really negative baggage that, I believe, is self-destructive.

Other than your thoughts, your words are your primary entry point into your experience. When you “have” to do something, it implies that it’s not a choice – that you would rather be somewhere else, doing something different. This, in turn, implies that your heart isn’t fully into what you are doing, which makes living up to your potential extremely difficult and enjoying your experience near impossible. 

So, when you say, “I have to go to work,” you are in a subtle way setting yourself up for a bad day. This doesn’t mean you’ll always have a bad day – but it certainly increases the likelihood.

Beyond that, however, there is a more subtle negative message you send to yourself and to others. It seems that deep down, what you’re really saying is, “I don’t like my work. I’m not capable of choosing work that I enjoy.” What a horrible message to say to yourself (or to someone else) about something you spend most of your time doing! Think about it. If you really loved your work, why would you be saying, “I have to go to work? Do you ever say, “I have to start my weekend now”?
