Think well!


Here is a beautiful story that is worth a read and share.

A young woman was sitting at her dining table, worried about taxes to be paid, house-work to be done and to top it all, her family was coming over for Thanksgiving the next day. She was not feeling very thankful at that time. As she turned her gaze sideways, she noticed her young daughter scribbling furiously into her notebook. “My teacher asked us to write a paragraph on “Negative Thanksgiving” for homework today.” said the daughter, “She asked us to write down things that we are thankful for, things that make us feel not so good in the beginning, but turn out to be good after all.”

With curiosity, the mother peeked into the book. This is what the daughter had written:
“I’m thankful for Final Exams, because that means school is almost over. I’m thankful for bad-tasting medicine, because it helps me feel better. I’m thankful for waking up to alarm clocks, because it means I’m still alive.” It then dawned on the mother, that she had a lot of things to be thankful for! She thought again… She had to pay taxes but that meant she was fortunate to be employed. She had house-work to do but that meant she had her own home to live in. She had to cook for her family for Thanksgiving but that meant she had a family with whom she could celebrate.

Moral:We generally complain about the negative things in life but we fail to look at the positive side of it. What is the positive in your negatives?
Look at the better part of life this day and make it a great day”

    • Yes Dr Sridhar I quite agree . And all it takes is thinking well and of the valuing whatever positives are present in our life . If we care to actually rethink there is much to be thankful for in our lives.
      Life is itself a precious gift . We simply need it live it well.


  2. A much needed one Savvy.. You crafted it and expressed so well..
    We often realize the good things that happened after the outcome.. After all time plays the major role..

  3. Wow! Loved this post….what a great way to turn around our thinking – it is not that there is a silver lining in the black cloud – the black cloud IS the silver lining. Thanks so much Savvy! 🙂 I am feeling so happy and blessed. 🙂
