God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Striking thoughts that I came across today.
— When I was going to work in the morning I heard a humble person on radio saying that he treats GOD as his father and never asks anything from him because a father always knows when the child is ready and gives by himself without asking if the child deserves it.
— It was very boring in the office the whole day and I was thinking we struggle so much to make a living doing jobs that we actually don’t like. And I was thinking to myself in this world there would be many other people who would be struggling like this doing jobs that they don’t like to do.
When I came home my wife said everyone needs to work for a living. Very true, I think either we have to find what we love to do or do everything that comes in our path with love giving 100 percent to it by never losing sight of your true goal. And slowly work towards it step by step, ultimately one day we will be able reach our true goal.
— Our car cleaner had come to meet me. I always admire him. He comes from a very poor background. He gets up very early in the morning cleans our car as well as many other cars and goes to some other work to make a living. Until today he has been so prompt and sincere that he cleans the car daily without missing a day. Or it’s very rare that our car is not cleaned. I never had to tell him to clean the car properly, the previous car cleaner was so lazy and I had to tell him many times to clean the car properly. Another important quality that I liked in him is he always gives more prominence to work than money. Even if I give him more money he does not take it and only takes his pay check. He is never greedy for making more money even though he comes from a very poor background. Next month he is getting married, I wish and pray to God for his well-being.
