A blind girl hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone,
except her loving boyfriend.  He was always there for her. She told her
boyfriend, "If I could only see the world, I would marry you."
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came
off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked
her, 'Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?'

The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight
of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn't expected that. The
thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to
marry him.
Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her
saying: 'Take good care of your eyes, my dear, because before they 
were yours, they were mine. '

This is how the human brain often works when our 'status changes'. 
Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by
their side in the most painful situations.
Life Is a Gift!
Today before you say an unkind word -Think of someone who can't speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone who
has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone 
who's crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life -Think of someone who went too
early to heaven.

Before you complain about your children -Think of someone who desires
children but they're barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn't clean or 
sweep - Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before whining about the distance you drive - Think of someone who 
walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job -Think of the
unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
- Remember that not one of us is without error and we all answer to the
Divine. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a
smile on your face and Thank the Divine you're alive and still around.
