A must see.. and read.. and reflect!

These pictures were voted as the best email of the year. This was forwarded to me by a friend and I can't keep it to myself. I have to share this to all of you out there and see if these photographs will make a good impact in your lives as it did mine. Seeing all these scenarios made me feel so blessed and very lucky!
If you think you are unhappy, look at them
If you think your salary is low, how about her?

If you think you don't have many friends...

When you feel like giving up, think of this man...

If you think you suffer in life, do you suffer as much as he does?

If you complain about your transport system, how about them?
If your society is unfair to you, how about her?
Enjoy life how it is and as it comes Things are worse for others and is a lot better for us. There are many things in your life that will catch your eyes but only a few will catch your heart....pursue those...
Observe around you and be thankful for all that you have in this transitry lifetime. We are fortunate, we have much more than what we need to be content. Let's try not to feed this endless consumerism and immorality in which this "modern and advanced" society forgets and ignores the other two thirds of our brothers and sisters. Let us complain less and give more.

  1. this is en eye-opening message, we're trained to look up and to pursue more and more in life...and a simple obstacle/trial in life really annoys us, even the petty things may even knock us down..life is a matter of perspective...always look into the bright side and count your blessings. But the noble thing to do is to help your brethen, even in prayers only.
