A few days ago, I came across an article which read:
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said “I am blind. Please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat. A man walked passed, took out a few coins from his pocket and dropped it into the hat. He took the sign, turned it around and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone walking past could see the new words. Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon, the man who changed the sign stopped by to see how things were going. The boy recognised his footsteps and asked “Were you the person who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?” The man said ” I only wrote the truth. I said what you said, just in a different way. Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.”
The moral of this story is to always be grateful for what you have. Spend time with the people you love and care about. Send that message, make that phone call, watch that sunset, read that book , forgive anyone who has caused you pain because life is too short and we are uncertain of where we will be in the next second. Be creative. Be innovative. Always be positive.
If life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret, handle your present with confidence and prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith, drop the fear and never have any doubts.
Most importantly, do good to others and make them smile. The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling! And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!
