Be Patient !!!


BE PATIENT!!!

 

A man came out of his home to admire his new truck.

 

To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the truck.

 

The man ran to his son, knocked him away, and hammered the little boy’s hands into pulp as punishment.

 

When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital.

 

Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, he finally had to amputate fingers from boy’s both hands.

 

When the boy woke up from the surgery and saw his bandaged stubs, he innocently said, “Daddy, I’m sorry about your truck.”

 

Then he asked, “But when are my fingers going to grow back?”

 

The father went home and committed suicide.

 

Think about this story the next time someone steps on your feet or you wish to take revenge.

 

Think first before you lose your patience with someone u love.

 

Trucks can be repaired.

 

Broken bones and hurt feelings often can’t.

 

Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the performance.

 

We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge.

 

People make mistakes.

 

We are allowed to make mistakes.

 

But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

 

Pause and ponder.

 

Think before you act.

 

Be patient.

 

Forgive and forget.

 

Love one and all.

 

Cheers,

Dont Overstress Urself!!!


PUT THE GLASS DOWN!

 

A professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it.

 

He held it up for all to see and asked the students, “How much do you think this glass weighs?”

 

‘50 gms!’…. ‘100 gms!’…… ‘125 gms’ …… the students answered.

 

“I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is: What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”

 

“Nothing” the students said.

 

“Ok! What would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?” the professor asked.

 

“Your arm would begin to ache,” said one of the students.

 

“You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”

 

“Your arm could go numb, you might have severe muscle stress and paralysis and have to go to hospital for sure!” ventured another student; and all the students laughed.

 

“Very good. But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?” asked the professor.

 

“No” the students said.

 

“Then what caused the arm ache and the muscle stress?” The students were puzzled.

 

“Put the glass down!” said one of the students.

 

“Exactly!” said the professor.

 

“Life’s problems are something like this. Hold it for a few minutes in your head and they seem okay. Think of them for a long time and they begin to ache. Hold it even longer and they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.”

 

“It’s important to think of the challenges (problems) in your life, but EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to have trust in God and to ‘put them down’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep.

 

That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh and strong and can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!”

 

So, as it becomes time for you to leave office today, Remember friend to “PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY” and have tranquility by putting trust in Almighty.

 

By worrying so much, do not turn your life to hell. Good luck.

A Hole In The Fence !!!


A HOLE IN THE FENCE

 

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper.

 

His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

 

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.

 

Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.

 

He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence….

 

Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

 

He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

 

The day passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

 

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.

 

He said, “You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence.”

 

The fence will never be the same.

 

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.

 

You can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

 

It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there.

 

A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

 

Friends and loved ones are a very rare jewel, indeed.

 

They make you smile and encourage you to succeed.

 

They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their hearts to us.

 

Water your relationships with kindness… and they will grow.

 

So be careful little lips what you say…! And you won’t chase friendships away.
