A Life Story

I just came across this small but true tale that makes Life, so thought of sharing it here. :)

---------- Love, Wealth and Success !!! --------

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said "I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat."

"Is the man of the house home?", they asked.

"No", she replied. "He's out."

"Then we cannot come in", they replied.

In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.

"Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The woman went out and invited the men in"

" We do not go into a House together," they replied.

"Why is that?" she asked.

One of the old men explained: "His name is Wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success, and I am Love." Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home."

The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice!!", he said. "Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"

His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"

Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: "Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!"

"Let us heed our daughter's advice," said the husband to his wife.

"Go out and invite Love to be our guest ."

The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, "Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest."

Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, t he lady asked Wealth and Success: "I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?"

The old men replied together: "If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him.

Wherever there is LOVE, there is also WEALTH and SUCCESS !!!!!!


Ain't that true!? :)

My random thoughts

On Friendship...

- Friendship, i believe is probably the one special relationship that we can choose, rely and enjoy it without any limits and obligations.
- Friendship makes Love even more Lovely, but Love sometimes can damage Friendship.

On Love...

- Talking about Love is nice, but living it is even better.
- Love knows no language and expression, and if you are expecting it to be tender and gentle always, then you are 'containing' Love.
- Its mutual understanding that makes a relationship outstanding.
- Money, Time n Love are the three important aspects of a successful relationship, lack of even one of which starts spoiling it.
- People these days sort to a relationship more for their need, greed or growth. Obviously, It wont stand long.
- Love is nothing less than a war; war within ourselves, with that person and with the world around!
- No fool drinks for the sake of bearing pain, i drink to be able to sit here, to be able to watch you and to be capable to bear you. ~ English version of a Bollywood fim dialog. :)

On Marriage...

- Marriage is an important decision of choosing ones Life partner; Fame and name is what everyone looks for...But why not compatibility??
- One should marry only when he is sure that he can make the other person happy. That way both will b happy, and the relationship will last long.
- Marriage is not a compulsion at a certain age, that you blindly arrange someone, make it a business kind of deal and then tie the 'Knot'.

On Life...

- Everything is prone to change, good bad or worse. To keep yourself going, is what is called Life.
- Some mistakes are costly, in the sense that we don't lose anything but for some precious moments.
- When you don't have around, the people who really care for you, all that money and status you earn makes no sense.
- You cannot really change someone by insulting, and just pointing their mistakes. Supporting him and correcting him will work better.
- 'Truth' if not said at the right moment, will loose its value with time.
- Its really strange that we are used to not believing anything without proofs. But certain things stand and exist on faith, only faith.
- When you have too many uncertainties in your Life, you need to take a step back n look for ways to clear up things!!
- Love your Work and Work your Love - Feel the magic that Life creates around you!
- Fear spoils major part of our life. Fear for various reasons.

Why are some days so special?

Why are some days special for us, when every day is pretty normal.
The specialty lies in our thoughts, our feelings, our beliefs and some wonderful memories that make our days more special.

Say for example, today is her birthday. I feel great about the fact that this day changed my life, for all the good it is now. Its because of her presence, in my life, that makes it more beautiful. I cherish all the positive changes she brought into my life. I feel grateful for all her direct and indirect support, that helps me get the best out of my abilities and i feel like paying her back, in my own small way, on her birthday.
So, her birthday is very special for me, in fact the most memorable day of my life. :-)
