“I know it’s hard for you to understand and I can be most exasperating (big word, eh!); but if I didn’t (always) try so hard, I would simply give up and never get anything accomplished (in my ‘little’ life).”

THE STORY OF THE CRACKED POT

“A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years, this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made.

(enough there for now, c)

Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.

For G and S

“Watching children grow
is like threatening the ivy
to climb the garden wall.
You wait for it to happen
you hurry it along with love.
But still you’re disappointed
at giving someone life enough
to walk off on your own
and not be carried in your arms.
You never turn your back – not once,
and yet one day they’ve grown apart
or taller.
It’s all the…

“Life is a journey… one long and often very difficult one of becoming.”
http://www.craigsquotes.wordpress.com

Something for all

A life is a lesson to learn,It’s an opportunity to become.

in life we should not have attachment towards others otherwise we will not be able to live without others.

Every bird has to leave the family to live and get food.

if you will not get independent then it will be tough for you to live life.

be like the water that goes away when the fish is trapped in a net.

fish dies because of the love of water but water escapes to live.

So always be ready to face the consequences.
