Small things in Life

01 Feb

This story is from a forward email. It is supposed to be from Lisa Beamer. It shows the importance of small things in our life.

******************************************************

I had a very special teacher in high school many years ago whose husband died suddenly of a heart attack. About a week after his death, she shared some of her insight with a classroom of students.  As the late afternoon sunlight came streaming in through the classroom windows and the class was nearly over, she moved a few things aside on the edge of her desk and sat down there.

Paying back!

14 Oct

I know one of my friend who looks after her old mother who has Alzheimer’s. It is very hard for her, but she tries her best. Some people tell to put mother in a nursing home…but for her if she cannot do her best, she won’t feel good about herself. My friend may do it if she cannot handle in any way. But now, she has the resources to do it. She is telling, it is time to pay back for what her mother did. When she had to get up at night, she remembers how her mother had to do that for her!

When I look back in my life, I feel like kids always take it granted that parents do lot of stuff for them. When I became a mother I realized how much I have to thank my mother. When I had my baby with me, it was like I will do anything in this world to protect her. I remembered the incidents my mother was on my side to support, protect and encourage. Then I realized how fortunate I am to have her…I understood the value of having her.

Sometimes we don’t realize how fortunate we are to have mothers. Like everything, we don’t realize the value of something when we have it. I know a woman who said- she is grateful that sometimes her son visits. Sons and daughters, think about your kids…when they grow up, how you want them to be? Be like that to your parents! If you get a chance to pay back, don’t hesitate-go with your heart!

“How not to be so sensitive”

16 Aug

Some people think that being sensitive is something wrong. They think when you cry in front of others it makes them look weak. When you cry seeing a movie, people laugh at it.

Is being sensitive something to be changed in you?

What do we mean by being sensitive? Being sensitive and self-pity are totally different.

Self-pity arises from low self-esteem, sensitiveness arises from compassion.
While self-pity is selfishness, sensitiveness is giving.
Self pity makes you lose reasons; sensitiveness makes you realize reasons.
Self-pity is stubbornness; but sensitiveness listen to others.
Self-pity is denial; sensitiveness is acceptance.

If you are having self pity, that needs to be removed. To do so, you have to feel confident in yourself. Being a good human with sensitiveness is a great strength and virtue. If you are sensitive, be grateful and proud about that–don’t ever change it–be the sensitive YOU always.

Update: One of my readers told me to write about ‘advice on how not to be sensitive’. Here it is:  How to live with sensitivity. This article or the previous article is not about ‘how not to be sensitive’, because, I will not tell anyone that being sensitive is something wrong or to be changed.
