POT POURI

The more time you spend as a caregiver,
the less time you will spend as the cared for.

The more you provide, the less you will be in need.

Science bears this out with hard facts. Those that do volunteer work to help those in need stay healthier than those who don'tdo volunteer work.

If you do not like something, then change it. If you can not change it, then change the way you think about it."

Distances does not matter when the memories are
and Special People are not forgotten when they remain in Heart Beats"..........

You do not choose your destiny,It chooses you.

मैं खुद को कुछ इस तरह पाता हूँ ...
चेहरे बदलने का हुनर मुझमैं नहीं ,
दर्द दिल में हो तो हसँने का हुनर मुझमें नहीं,
मैं तो आईना हुँ तुझसे तुझ जैसी ही मैं बात करू,
टूट कर सँवरने का हुनर मुझमैं नहीं ।
चलते चलते थम जाने का हुनर मुझमैं नहीं,
एक बार मिल के छोड जाने का हुनर मुझमैं नहीं ,
मैं तो दरिया हुँ ,
बहता ही रहा ,तूफान से डर जाने का हुनर मुझमैं नही


Always ask God to give you what you Deserve,
Not what you desire,
Because your desires may be few,
But YOU deserve A LOT !!!

Life never turns the way we want,
But we live it the best way we can,
There is no perfect life,
But we can fill it with perfect moments.

An arrow can be sent only by dragging it back,
So when life is dragging you back with difficulties,
it means that it is going to launch you into victory.

Alexander's beautiful last words....
Bury my body, dont build any monuments,
Keep my hand outside, so the world knows-
Who won the world had nothing in hand,
when he died.

Never design your character like a garden,
Where anyone can walk.
design it like the sky where
everyone aspires to reach.

A mentor is not a person who gives you advice.A mentor is a person whose advice you follow.~Mike Murdoch~

Learn to write your pains on the sand,
Where waves of forgiveness can erase it.
carve your joys in stone,
where even rain cant erase it.

'Always ask God to give you what you Deserve,
Not what you desire,
Because your desires may be few,
But YOU deserve A LOT !!!' - I couldn't have understood better than this.

I knew I needed some work with my prayers :D

Piper .. said...

lovely words. I remembered a quote from Randy Pausch(after reading the lines about 'life doesnt turn the way we want) - We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.
Beautiful!
