your immediate superior supports and understand you
your key peers (not all) trust and work well with you
your direct subordinates respect and believe in you
You taught me well
You took care of me
You guided me
You showed me REALITY
You blessed my family and I
With laughter, happiness, togetherness
To love and to be loved
You made me great friends
Showed me who they truly are
Their kindness and their compassion
You showed me “pretenders” too
For my shortcomings, I will improve
Should I have hurt someone – Sorry !!
Most importantly, 2018
You woke me up
Made me realize
What is important
What it means to be ME
To do what has to be done
To be a kind human being
And not live behind a mask
One should listen and be respectful to others ……. one is never always right.
Is it the PROBLEM or is it YOU ?
Everyone would enjoy being told that she is beautiful.
But true flattery is when people tell you that you are intelligent, kind, passionate, responsible and appreciates you as a genuinely good person.
Beauty is given to you. You could be born with beauty.
But it is YOU who created who YOU are and YOUR purpose in life.
And this depth inside you will define YOU and be everlasting, whilst beauty will just fade away over time.
So true ..
But “he” does not realize this and stops at nothing to attain success.
Blinded by Power ? Money ? Greed ?
And hence without a “heart”, others are “stepped on” and unreasonably pushed for “his” selfish desire.
Of course, there will always be this “excuse” that “his” cause is good for everyone.
If “he” wins, he proclaims to be the driver and a great leader. If “he” losses, then it is “your fault”.
Where is the DECENCY of being a human being ?
Are you “him” ?
I pray not.
And this is true for whoever you are and at what level you are.
We are all human.
If you can bow to a person who is in a higher position than you ; as well as to a servant, a door man, a waiter or a office boy ….then you will live a happier life.
Do not be selfish with your respect for others.
