Having a Best Friend


A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “Today my best friend slapped me in the face”.

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone “Today my best friend saved my life”.

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?”

The other friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”

Moral: Always value who you have in your life.

Be grateful for what God has given you



How grateful would you say you are?  Did you know that your gratitude level can directly affect your happiness?  Now that may sound little strange. 
        
Even financial experts agree that gratitude is a vital component for increasing wealth and success. This basic premise of gratitude is to acquire a more positive and receptive state of being.  Here is how it actually works. You begin by being grateful for the smaller and more immediate things like having a place to live, food to eat, etc.  By placing yourself in a positive frame of mind through gratitude, you open yourself to all the good things the universe has to offer. 

That is when you can actually begin to attract good things to you.  And as you become more comfortable with the positive things that basic gratitude brings, you will likely find yourself feeling grateful for even bigger things like being alive, learning hard lessons, your past mistakes, the freedom to make choices in life, and more.  This type of gratitude catapults you even further along the path to a successful and happy life. 
    
Once you reach the point where you remain in a constant state of gratitude, you will become a magnet that attracts the good things to you.
       
Take some time every day this week to note those things that you are grateful for, from the smallest to the biggest.
