Nugget # 46 Life lessons from a Cow!

Hi friends,

We live in an age of instant solutions; a day where “quicker” has become a pseudonym of “better.” We have instant photographs, instant coffee, instant banking, online shopping, instant chatting, live telecasts and even Internet weddings! Instead of the good old home-cooked meals we now have microwave dinners, handwritten love notes are replaced by mechanical text messages, snail mail is practically unheard of as we now have email, parental pep talks for guidance are now replaced by Google time and smileys are exchanged instead of smiles! Come to think of it….we have all ( in one way/other)  become the innocent victims of this dreadful malady : “the hurry sickness” ; the subtle instigator of many of the evils & illnesses in our lives today. The message is loud and clear but often we are too much in a hurry to even stop and listen. This poem I learnt in my school days speaks beautifully a truth we all may need to be reminded of.

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare? –
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows:
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
W. H. Davies

Let’s try and make a deliberate effort to slow down, get in tune with nature, laugh some and learn more. Sharing some points I really enjoyed from this write up found circulating the Net via email. Enjoy!

Nugget # 45 Life is a song!

Life is a song, sing it!

Hi friends,

There are some people though we may never have met in life ,yet bring so much happiness to our days  that when they leave us all on a sudden, we feel a sense of loss , an emptiness because quite often,even unknown to us they actually held such a special place in our hearts. These are people of POWER and influence who have conquered not by war but by love. The beloved Mother Teresa , Lovely Princess Di  are some such unforgettable personalties whose  life songs continue to linger on our lips long after they have left us,not because they were perfect people but because they were people who genuinely loved and cared. Today the world all over grieves the demise of another such amazing woman who sang her way into our hearts and this post is for you our lovely  Whitney Houston. Thanks for singing your way through life and brightening so many of our days with your love.We will always love you Whitney!

Click here to enjoy my fav Whitney song  which made her the best selling single female artist in music history. “I will always love you”- from “The Body Guard”

Nugget # 44 Life is like a party!

 Hi friends,

This week I’d like to share this beautiful analogy of life that I just came across. No matter what comes up in our life, if we learn to develop an attitude of gratitude we will be able to celebrate life as a party.

 

Nugget of Life: Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here, we should dance. Live For Today…Plan For Tomorrow…Party Tonight..!!!

Have an awesome week,

Cheers,

Sparky Laurie
