She’s not perfect – you aren’t either…

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. 

She loved before she may love again. Butif she loves you now, what else matters?

 She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and thetwo of you may never be perfect togethe

r but if she can make you laugh, cause you tothink twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, 

hold onto her and give herthe most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, 

but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. 

So don’t hurt her,don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. 

Smile whenshe makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her whenshe’s not there.”

The cab driver !

One day I hired a cab and took off for the Railway Station. 

We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a Mercedes car jumped out of parking space right in front of us. 

My cab driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! 

The driver of the Mercedes car whipped his head around and started shouting at us. 
My cab driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And was totally cool as if nothing happened.
 So I asked, ‘Why did you keep quiet? 
This guy almost caused an accident andwe could had been in the hospital!’ 
This is when my cab driver taught me a lesson which I will not forget throughout my life. 
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. 
They move around full of junk, full of resentment, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump iton you. Don’t take it personally. 

Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. 

Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets. 

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. 

Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so … Love the people who treat you right. 

Pray for the ones who don’t. 

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it! 


Don’t change the world

Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled a prosperous country. One day, he went for a trip to some distant areas of his country. When he was back to his palace, he complained that his feet were very painful, because it was the first time that he went for such a long trip, and the road that he went through was very rough and stony. He then ordered his people to cover every road of the entire country with leather. Definitely, this would need thousands of cows’ skin, and would cost a huge amount of money. 
Then one of his wise servants dared himself to tell the king, “Why do you have to spend that unnecessary amount of money? Why don’t you just cut a little piece of leather to cover your feet?” 
The king was surprised, but he later agreed to his suggestion, to make a “shoe” for himself. 
There is actually a valuable lesson of life in this story: to make this world a happy place to live, you better change yourself — your heart; and not the world.
