Uniqueness is important

Think what a remarkable, unduplicatable, and miraculous thing it is to be you! Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not ONE of them is like YOU!

No one who has ever lived or is to comes has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.

No, one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know.

The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you – NO ONE!

No one before, no one to come. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE!

Enjoy the uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else. You were meant to be different. Nowhere ever in all of history will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.

If you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap in history, something missing from the plan for humankind.

Treasure your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!

No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort with your kind of comfort. No one can bring your kind of understanding to another person.

No one can be cheerful and light-hearted and joyous in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.
Share your uniqueness. Let it be free to flow out among your family and friends and people you meet in the rush and clutter of living wherever you are. That gift of yourself was given you to enjoy and share. Give yourself away!

See it! Receive it! Let it tickle you! Let it inform you and nudge you and inspire you! YOU ARE UNIQUE!

Funny joke

Boy’s Job Appraisal

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda cartoon and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits (phone numbers). The store-owner observed and listen to the conversation.

 Boy: ‘Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?’

Women: (At the other end of the phone line): ‘I already have someone to cut my lawn.’ 

Boy: ‘Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now.’

Women: I am very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn. 

Boy: (With more perseverance): ‘Lady, I will even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach, Florida.’

Women: No thank you. 

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy. 

Store-owner: ‘Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.’

Boy: ‘No thanks.’

Owner: But you were really pleading for one.

Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the Job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to!’

Useless tree story

           MOST PEOPLE GAUGE 

        THINGS BY THEIR UTILITY

Once there was a farmer who owned a large garden with variety of fruit-trees. But one mango tree got barren. Though, it no longer had any fruits, it provided shelter to many birds 🐦.

Finding the mango tree useless, farmer decided to fell it. The moment, he was about to cut the tree 🌲 with his axe, the birds living on the tree begged him, “Spare this tree, sir! If you fell it, we will become homeless and have to go elsewhere. Moreover, it will deprive you of our merry notes when you are here at work.” But the farmer turned a deaf -ear to the plea of the birds and struck at the tree with his axe.

 A few strokes of axe discovered a hollow in the tree-stem containing a large honey-comb inside it. 

Delighted at his find, the farmer thought in his mind, “This tree is really worth keeping. If not mangoes, then honey can make me money. So, I must not fell it.” The farmer was very clever. Finding the tree to be useless, he decided to get rid of it but the moment he came to know that the tree was still fruitful, he decided to keep it.

A short story

He(This tree) is proud to be ugly

Long, long ago, in a highfey forest there were thousands of tall and beautiful trees. They were happy, but proud of themselves.

 Among them there also an ugly tree whose branches were badly twisted. Its roots had uneven curves. All the trees made fun of that ugly tree.“How are you, hunchback?” the other trees always shouted and their laughter made the ugly tree feel sad. But, he never raised a voice against them. The ugly tree thought, “I wish I were as beautiful as the other trees. Why did God do this to me? Neither can I provide shade to the travelers not can the birds make their nests on me. Nobody needs me.” 

One day, a woodcutter came to the forest. He took a look at the trees and said, “These trees are lovely. I must cut them.” As soon as he picked up his axe the trees became frightened. 

‘Chop, Chop, Chop’ went the woodcutter’s axe and one by one the trees started to fall. “None of us is going to be spared,” screamed one of the beautiful trees. Soon that tree too was brought to ground by the woodcutter’s axe.

 By now, the woodcutter had come near to the ugly tree. He had just raised his axe when suddenly he noticed how crooked the ugly tree was. “Hmm! This crooked tree seems to be useless for me. I cannot make long straight logs of this ugly tree,” he thought. And he moved towards another beautiful tree. The ugly tree heaved a huge sigh of relief. He realized that by making him ugly, God had actually given him a boon. 

From that day the ugly tree never complained. He was happy with his crooked branches. He never forgot how he was spared from the woodcutter’s axe, only because he was crooked and ugly.

Story of Rose

Roses For Rose

Red roses were her favourites; her name was also Rose, And every year her husband sent her tied with pretty bows. 

The year he died the the roses were delivered to her door, The card said “Be My Valentine” like all the before. Each year he sent her roses and the note would always say, “I love you even more this year than last year on this day, My love for you will always grow with every passing year,” She knew this was the last time that the roses would appear.

 She thought he ordered roses in advance before this day, Her loving husband did not know that he would pass away. He always liked to do things early way before the time, Then if he got too busy everything would work out fine. She strimmed the stems and placed them in a very special vase, Then sat the vase beside the portrait of his smiling face. She would  sit for hours in her husband’s favorite chair, While staring at his picture and the roses sitting there. A year went by and it was hard to live without her mate, With loneliness and solitude that had become her fate. Then the very hour as on Valentines before, The doorbell rang and there were roses sitting by her door. She brought the roses in and then just looked at them in shock, Then went to get the telephone to call the florist shop. 

The owner answered and she asked him if he would explain, Why would someone do this to her causing her such pain? “I know your husband passed away more than a year ago, “The owner said, “I knew you’d call and you would want to know.” “The flowers you received today were paid for in advance, Your husband always planned ahead he left nothing to chance.” “There is a standing order that I have on file down here, And he has paid well in advance you’ll get them every year.” “There also is another thing that I think you should know, He wrote a special little card he did this years ago.” “Then should ever I find out that he’s no longer here, That’s the card that should be sent to you the following year.” She thanked him and hung up the phone her tears now flowing hard, Her fingers shaking as she slowly reached to get the card. Inside the card she saw that he had written her a note, Then as she stared in total silence this is what he wrote. Hello my love I know it’s been a year since I’ve been gone, I hope it hasn’t been too hard for you to overcome. I know it must be lonely and the pain is very real, For if it was the other way I know how I would feel. The love we shared made everything so beautiful in life, I loved you more than words can say you were the perfect wife. You were my friend and lover you fulfilled my every need, I know it’s only been a year but please try not to grieve. I want you to be happy even when you shed your tears, That is why the roses will be sent to you for years. When you get these roses think of all the happiness, That we had together and how both of us were blessed. I have always loved you and I know I always will, But my love you must go on you have some living still. Please try to find happiness while living out your days, I know it is not easy but I hope you find some ways. The roses will come every year and they will only stop, When your door’s not answered when the florist stops to knock. He will come five times that day in case you have gone out,

 But after his last visit he will know without a doubt, To take the roses to the place where I’ve instructed him, And place the roses where we are together once again.
