What is the most important thing in your life?

I came across an email with pictures story in it. I find it very nice and meaningful. Sometimes in our life, we are so busy with "ourselves" that we tend to forget others... how they feel, how they think...

Youngsters especially would always think of "my future, my life, my destiny, my choice, my wish, my..., my...," and so on... But what about others? Your family? Your parents?

It's parents' dream to see their own children succeed in life. But does this mean that we have to go overseas to pursuit our studies or career and leave our parents behind, at home?

Although many parents (or shall I say all) encourage their children to leave home and travel far away to find a better future, but do you really know deep inside their heart, how they really feel? I'm sure most of the answers are "NO".

Give me a chance to take a couple of minutes from your time and scroll down to read this coming story. After finish reading it, sit silent for a while and think.

What is the most important thing in your life?

Lessons In Life

These 4 pictures are taken at the same place under different seasons.





There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away. The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had all gone and come back, he called them together to describe what they had seen. The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said no, it was covered with green buds and full of promise. The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment. The man then explained to his sons that they were all right, because they had each seen but only one season in the tree's life. He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season, and that the essence of who they are and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up. If you give up when it's winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, and the fulfillment of your fall.

Don't let the pain of one season destroy the joy of all the rest. Don't judge life by one difficult season. Persevere through the difficult patches and better times are sure to come some time or later.

Happiness keeps You Sweet,

Trials keep You Strong,

Sorrows keep You Human,

Failures keep You Humble,

Success keeps You Glowing,

But Only Living Live to the Fullest keeps You Going!
