If I Were A Bird

What if I were a bird?

I would need no tickets to fly. Just fly whenever I want. I would save a lot on air tickets! Jokes apart, what does a bird see from the sky? What does it feel? What opinions does it form and how does it look at human beings?

Let us first talk about birds. Have we ever thought that a small bird that comes out of the egg, flies without any help from any aircraft companies? It needs no design and no development of latest alloys or other light-weight materials to fly.

Bird flies itself without any help from mankind. It can swoop down or rise fast, sit or simply glide in the air. It does all this effortlessly without any chance of failure!

Now, let me become a bird and start my daily journey. I will not reveal about the part of the world I live in.

What is the first thing I see?

I watch the sun rising in the east. What a glorious sight is this! Sun, the great star, because of whom, we are all alive. As the day begins, I watch people moving around in the streets. I fly higher in the sky. Figures start looking very small on the ground.

These people who look so small from the height, think that they own the world. When I watch their expressions of worry and anxiety, I wonder. I want them to come with me and watch themselves from the height. As they will rise higher, they will realize that they are small, very small. And they will stop worrying.

How can you think of yourself as insignificant in the universe and still worry so much? This is the only cure for the worried people. Don’t think that the world will come down if you don’t worry about your problems. Carry on and let the problems not bother you so much that you stop living.

What beautiful thought of a bird!

Seize The Day

 

Around the corner, I have a friend,

In this great city that has no end,

Yet the days go by and weeks rush on,

And before I know it, a year is gone.

 

For life is swift and terrible race,

He knows I like him just as well,

As in the days when I rang his bell.

And he rang mine but we were younger men,

And now we are busy, tired men.

 

Tired of playing a foolish game,

Tired of trying to make a name.

“Tomorrow” I say! “I will call on Jim

Just to show that I’m thinking of him”

 

But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes,

And distance between us and grows and grows.

Around the corner, yet miles away,

“Here’s a telegram sir, “Jim died today.”

And that’s what we get and deserve in the end.

Around the corner, a vanished friend.

 

Remember to always say what you mean.

If you love someone, tell them.

 

Don’t be afraid to express yourself,

Reach out and tell someone what they mean to you.

Because when you decide that it is the right time it might be too late.

 

Seize the day. Never have regrets.

 

And most importantly, stay close to your friends

And family, for they helped

Make you the person that you are today.

I wish you Enough!

 

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how grey the day may appear.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.

I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

 

That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. The author’s parents used to say it to everyone. When we said, ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.

They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them.

Take Time To Have A Life… Most of us are too busy doing things for a living, that we almost forget to have a Life.

To all my friends and loved ones, I wish you Enough!

I’ve Learned

 

I’ve learned

…that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

 

I’ve learned

…that we should be glad God doesn’t give us everything we ask for.

 

I’ve learned

…that money doesn’t buy class.

 

I’ve learned

…that it’s those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular.

 

I’ve learned

…that under everyone’s hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved.

 

I’ve learned

…that the Lord didn’t do it all in one day. What makes me think I can?

 

I’ve learned

…that to ignore the facts does not change the facts.

 

I’ve learned.

 

I’ve learned

…that the less time I have to work, the more things I get done.

Friends Forever!

Written with a pen
Sealed with a kiss
If you are my friend,
Please answer this:
Are we friends or are we not?
You told me once, but I forgot.
So tell me now and tell me true,
So I can say, I am here for you.
Of all the friends I’ve ever met,
You’re the ones I won’t forget.
And if I die before you do,
I’ll go to Heaven
And wait for you.
