IF YOU can start the day without caffeine, if you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, if you can resist bewailing and boring people with your woes..
If you can eat the same food everyday and be grateful for it, if you can savvy when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, if you can afford a view it when those you love take it out on you when, though no fault of yours,something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and tirade without resentment, if you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him/her, if you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend.
If you can face the world without lies and deceit, if you can conquer tension without medical help, if you can relax without liquor, if you can sleep without the aid of drugs. If you can honestly say that, deep in your heart, you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, or politics.
Then my dearest friends, you are almost as good as your best buddy.
Human beings complain all the time. They can’t resist without coffee. They eat restaurant food and spend a fortune for it, yet they complain that the food is not really good enough. They live in expensive subdivisions as well as simple apartment buildings, yet they barely know their next-door neighbor.
Blesses wit intellect and possessing a sharp thinking process yet, when it comes to doing deals and transacting business, lying, scheming, and deception are part and parcel of the entire process.
Fact is, sometimes human beings do terrible things to each other that even animals do not do. And this is why we need to understand that living life successfully is not just an issue of intelligence or education. It has everything to do with understanding that human nature is inherently sinful.
Learn to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. It is a gift from God. Just think about this. Somebody somewhere out there will not be able to wake up tomorrow morning. So, Chill.
