Looking at the World from a Different Perspective

Looking at the World from a Different Perspective Once upon a time, a man lived alone in a village. As he grew old his eyesight deteriorated until he could not see at all. The old man would go to the woods every night to get water from the pond. Since he had spent all his life in the village, he knew his way by heart and easily managed to bring back water every night despite losing his vision. What puzzled the villagers was that although the old man was blind, yet he would carry around a lighted lamp. They simply could not understand why he would want to carry the extra burden of the lamp, yet they never questioned him of the fear of sounding rude. After all, the old man was a good person and they did not want to hurt his feelings. One day, a group of young>>>

Do Not Judge Life by a Single Bad Season

Do Not Judge Life by a Single Bad Season Imagine driving on a long and empty road. You have everything under control. Your car rockets away at a sharp speed. You feel as if nothing can ever go wrong here. Suddenly, your tire bumps into the protruded edge of a speed-breaker and you end up with a flat tire. At that moment, you realize how out of control everything is. You learn in that moment that life is unpredictable. It is in that moment that you understand that you never actually had any control in your life. However, the moment your tire goes out but your car manages to maintain balance and you manage to escape an accident unscathed, you learn something else too. Life is not always bad, it is also good. Life also shows you mercy. Although, your car suffered a loss, you didn’t! Life may seem unfortunate and>>>

Something is Better than Nothing

Something is Better than Nothing There once lived a fisherman. The sole source of survival for this poor man was his fish. Not only did he sell the fish in the market to meet his expenses, he also ate it to get by. One day, the fisherman reached the shore with high hopes of catching enough fish to feed him that day and for selling. However, to his dismay, he was only able to catch a little fry.

This little creature would not even be able to fulfill his hunger let alone make him any money. Nevertheless, he opened his basket to put the fish inside it. Just when he was about to throw it inside the basket, he heard a little whimper from>>>

Give Respect to Earn Respect

Give Respect to Earn Respect Once upon a time, a mighty lioness lived in a jungle. The lioness was feared by all the animals. The giraffes would run at the sight of the lioness, zebra and antelope would gallop at her name and even snappy crocodiles steer clear of her. One day, a tiny mouse was running in the tall grass of the jungle when he bumped into the lioness. She was sleeping and immediately woke up when she felt something tickling her nose. The mouse has accidentally scampered onto her face! The lioness roared in anger, “How dare you!” and was about to swipe the mouse with a deadly blow when he begged, “My mighty queen, forgive me! I was running through the tall grass, searching for scraps to eat, I did not see you. I never meant to run onto your nose and disturb your sleep.” The lioness>>>
