Happy Thanksgiving Day!

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building
with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign
which said: 'I am blind, please help.'
There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins
from his pocket and dropped them into
the hat.
He then took the sign, turned it around,
and wrote some words. He put the sign back
so that everyone who walked by would see
the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more
people were giving money to the blind boy.
That afternoon the man who had changed
the sign came to see how things were.
The boy recognized his footsteps and asked,
'Were you the one who changed my sign this
morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth.
I said what you said but in a different
way.' What he had written was: 'Today is
a beautiful day and I cannot see it.'

Do you think the first sign and the second
sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was
blind. But the first sign simply said the boy
was blind. The second sign told people they
were so lucky that they were not blind.
Should we be surprised that the second sign
was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you
have. Be creative. Be innovative.
Think differently and positively.

Invite others towards good with wisdom.
Live life with no excuse and love with no
regrets. When life gives you a 100 reasons
to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons
to smile. Face your past without regret.
Handle your present with confidence. Prepare
for the future without fear. Keep the faith
and drop the fear.

Great men say, 'Life has to be an incessant
process of repair and reconstruction, of
discarding evil and developing goodness….
In the journey of life, if you want to travel
without fear, you must have the ticket of a
good conscience.'

Hi. I am back after a long time.
I always try to be optimistic and I also try to encourage people to be like this. But unfortunately there are some people who never likes to see beautiful things. Albert Einstein says:"Small is the number of people who see with their eyes and think with their minds."
