Let's Ponder Together

I just find that life is really full of surprises. Good and bad they come together like Jack and Coke! ;)

Anyways, here's something that will remind us of something beautiful...Let it sink in and appreciate life! We only have one chance to live life to the fullest! I know, I know...Sometimes it's easier said than done especially if we are facing some trying times however, the question is, do you want to face the challenge being miserable or face it with confidence knowing that it can be solve and that you are strengthening your character and learning to be courageous no matter what situation you are in!

Here's something that's so beautiful. It's just so touching a story.... 

 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 after a long day of begging.

A man was walking by and took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote something on it. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would 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 had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning?
What did you write?"

The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way." I wrote: "Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it."

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the story: Be thankful of what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. In short, learn how to count your blessings. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear. The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling...And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!
