*U r important*

A cobbler lived in a large village and he was the only cobbler in town, so he was responsible for repairing the boots of everybody else.
However, he didn’t have time to repair his own boots. 
This wasn’t a problem at first, but over time, his boots began to deteriorate and fall apart. 
While he worked feverishly on the boots of everyone else, his feet got blisters and he started to limp. 
His customers started to worry about him, but he reassured them that everything was ok.
However, after a few years, the cobbler’s feet were so injured that he could no longer work and no-one’s boots got repaired. 
As a consequence, soon the entire town started to limp in pain, all because the cobbler never took the time to repair his own boots.
This simple principle is so often disregarded.       
 If you are in a responsible position and are one of the important links in the groups survival chain and if *You do not look after yourself, after a while you’ll be no good to anyone else either*.          

                                 

Your best intentions will mean nothing and you’ll be unable to do what you’re meant to do.            
This goes for leaders, social workers, teachers even parents, breadwinners, homemakers and _daughters-in-law
If you don’t take the time to care for yourself, no-one else will. 
*Are you taking care of yourself ??*
Take Care…. Stay Blessed…

Live for others…

A man married a beautiful girl. He loved her very much. One day she developed a skin disease. Slowly she started to lose her beauty. It so happened that one day her husband left for a tour. While returning he met with an accident and lost his eyesight. However their married life continued as usual. But as days passed she lost her beauty gradually. Blind husband did not know this and there was not any difference in their married life. He continued to love her and she also loved him very much.One day she died. Her death brought him great sorrow.

He finished all her last rites and wanted to leave that town.

A man from behind called and said, now how will you be able to walk all alone? All these days your wife used to help you.

He replied, I am not blind. I was acting, because if she knew l could see her ugliness it would have pained her more than her disease. So I pretended to be blind. She was a very good wife. I only wanted to keep her happy.

Moral:- *Some times it is good for us to act blind and ignore one another’s short comings, in order to be happy*

*No matter how many times the teeth bite the tongue, they still stay together in one mouth. That’s the spirit of FORGIVENESS.*

*Even though the eyes don’t see each other, they see things together, blink simultaneously and cry together. That’s UNITY.”*

*May God grant us all the spirit of forgiveness, unity and togetherness*.

1. _”Alone I can ‘Say’ but together we can ‘Talk’._

2. _”Alone I can ‘Enjoy’ but together we can Celebrate_

3. _’Alone I can ‘Smile’ but together we can ‘Laugh’._

*That’s the BEAUTY of Human Relations. We are nothing without each other*

*STAY CONNECTED*

*QUOTE OF THE DAY*

The razor blade is sharp but can’t cut a tree; the axe is strong but can’t cut the hair._

*MORALS*; *Everyone is important according to his/her own unique purpose…. Never look down on anyone unless you are admiring their shoes…..*.

Challenge Yourself

The Japanese have always loved fresh fish. But the waters close to Japan have not held many fish for decades. So the fishermen had to go further out to sea to catch their supply of fish, the fishing boats got bigger and bigger.
The farther the fishermen went, the longer it took to bring in the fish. If the return trip took more than a few days, the fish were not fresh and they lost their fresh taste.

To solve this problem, fishing companies installed freezers on their boats. They would catch the fish and freeze them at sea. Freezers allowed the boats to go farther and stay longer. However, the Japanese could taste the difference between fresh and frozen and they did not like frozen fish. Also, the frozen fish brought a lower price. So fishing companies installed fish tanks. They would catch the fish and stuff them in the tanks, fin to fin. After a little thrashing around, the fish stopped moving. They were tired and dull, but alive. Unfortunately, the Japanese could still taste the difference; because the fish did not move for days, they lost their fresh-fish taste.

How did the Japanese fish company solve this problem?

To keep the fish tasting fresh, the Japanese fishing companies added a small shark to the tanks that the fish were kept in. The shark of course eats a few fish, but most of the fish arrive in a very lively state due to the fact that the fish are challenged.
Keep that shark inside you alive!
Shark?
Challenge yourself everyday. Push yourself everyday. The more are the sharks(challenges), the more you are forced to move forward. The more are the sharks, the more you will be motivated to work better.

A rare conversation between Krishna & Today’s Arjun.

1. Arjun :- I can’t find free time. Life has become hectic.

Krishna:- Activity gets you busy. But productivity gets you free.

2. Arjun :- Why has life become complicated now?

Krishna :- Stop analyzing life. It makes it complicated. Just live it.

3. Arjun :- Why are we then constantly unhappy?

Krishna :- Worrying has become your habit. That’s why you are not happy.

4. Arjun :- Why do good people always suffer?

Krishna :- Diamond cannot be polished without friction. Gold cannot be purified without fire. Good people go through trials, but don’t suffer.

With that experience their life becomes better, not bitter.

5. Arjun :- You mean to say such experience is useful?

Krishna :- Yes. In every term, Experience is a hard teacher. It gives the test first and the lessons later.

6. Arjun :- Because of so many problems, we don’t know where we are heading.

Krishna:- If you look outside you will not know where you are heading. Look inside. Eyes provide sight. Heart provides the way.

7. Arjun :- Does failure hurt more than moving in the right direction?

Krishna:- Success is a measure as decided by others. Satisfaction is a measure as decided by you.

8. Arjun :- In tough times, how do you stay motivated?

Krishna :- Always look at how far you have come rather than how far you have to go. Always count your blessing, not what you are missing.

9. Arjun :- What surprises you about people?

Krishna :- When they suffer they ask, “why me?” When they prosper, they never ask “Why me?”

10. Arjun :- How can I get the best out of life?

Krishna:- Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear.

11. Arjun :- One last question. Sometimes I feel my prayers are not answered.

Krishna:- There are no unanswered prayers. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

Life is a mystery to solve,
not a problem to resolve.

Trust me.

Life is wonderful,
If you know how to live.

Stay Blessed and Stay Happy.. Always!!
