Life is a roller coaster

I have to tell you.Every day is a roller coaster ‘Rush Limbaugh’                 

Life is like a roller coaster.

You can either scream every time there is a bump or

You can throw your hands up and enjoy the ride.

Happiness in Childhood

Happy kids

How I wish I go back to my Childhood days !

Children are happy because they don’t have a file in their minds called”All the things that could go wrong” Marianne Williamson

Before you Judge me……….

put yourself in someone's shoes,judgmental

“Always put yourself  in other peoples shoes” A well known Idiom

Joke part of the idiom

“Before you judge a man,walk a mile in his shoes.After that who cares?…He is a mile away and you’ve got his shoes”.   Billy Connolly.

Remember the the whole world revolves around the ‘mind set’ and  every thought that crosses your mind is influenced by the ‘PERCEPTION’ which is already settled in your mind that can influence the outcome.

Real part of the Idiom

Is this idea of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes …does this really works all the time ?

For this idiom to work, one must have a through knowledge about three things.1.Empathy. 2.Sympathy and 3. Compassion.

Unless one possesses these three qualities,the idiom does not serve the purpose. The help,what you think you are lending to the needy,need not necessarily be appreciated by the needy since Needy’s perception of your help may be different and sometimes just opposite.

How Putting Yourself in Someone Else’s Shoes May Backfire

Gossip

Gossip

“Show me someone who never gossips, and I will show you someone who is not interested in people”-Barbara walters

How True it is !!

As you can see in the photograph , two Lazy citizens busily ‘gossiping’ in spite of the ‘heavy downpour’

“Gossip is like Three Color Traffic Signal

RED stands for the vicious tongue that starts and spreads it

YELLOW is for the sick mind that listens and enjoys it, While

GREEN is the naive Character, who believes & acts based on it
