Powerful Lessons

There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind.  

She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend.   He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend,  

'If I could only see the world, I will marry you.' 

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her.  

When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.

He asked her,  'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'  

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.

Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.'

This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations.

Life Is a Gift

before you say an unkind word
Think of someone who can't speak.
you complain about the taste of your food
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

you complain about your husband or wife
Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.

before you complain about life
Think of someone who went too early to heaven.

you complain about your children
Think of someone who desires children but they're barren.

you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or sweep
Think of the people who are living in the streets.

whining about the distance you drive and the traffic you’re in,
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when
you are tired and complain about your job 
Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
 Remember that not one of us is without sin.
And when
depressing thoughts seem to get you down
Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.
