Have a Blessed Day

Have a Blessed 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

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

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

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."

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling

And even more beautiful is, knowing that you are the reason behind
