Wooden Bowl

Very happy day to you my dear friends and visitors,

Greetings from Lift You Up and trust this post find you in the pink of health.

To keep you in high spirits is always in my mind and I always try my very best to do so. I want you to see light no matter what your state of affair you are in. Likewise, I have mentioned before and like to repeat that maintaining in high spirit at All times is not an automatic process or one off thing, but it is rather a conditioning that we keep the flame burning in your heart.

Below please find another inspiring story to share with you:-

The Wooden Bowl

I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson.

The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered

The family ate together at the table. But the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and
Failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor.

When he grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess.

'We must do something about father,' said the son.

'I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.'

So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.
There, Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.
Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl.

When the family glanced in Grandfather's direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone.

Still, the only words the couple had for hi m w ere sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor.

He asked the child sweetly, 'What are you making?' Just as sweetly, the boy responded,

'Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up.
' The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.

That evening the husband took Grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table.

For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason,

Neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

On a positive note, I've learned that, no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things:

A rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life..'

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands.You nee d to be able to throw something back sometimes.

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you
But, if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others,
Your work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.

People love that human touch -- holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that you should share this with everyone you care about .I just did.

Thank you for your time and trust that the lesson you learn is far exceedingly your valuable time spent reading this blog.

Cheers and have a lovely wonderful day,

Make A Difference

Very happy day, my loving readers and visitors,

Do you believe that life is lovely wonderful? To prove this statement is right, please read the story below,

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.' There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.'

What he had written was: 'Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.'

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing?
Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story:

Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

Invite the people towards good with wisdom. Live life with no excuse and love with no regrets.

When Life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

Don't believe your doubts and doubt your beliefs. Life is a mystery to solve not a problem to resolve. Life is wonderful if you know how to live.

Always get your perspective right.

Trust the above has lifted you up and stay tuned always by subscribe to this blog.

Have a lovely wonderful day,

Dear loving readers and visitors,

Greetings from Lift You Up. Hope you find this post well and in high spirits.

It is of supreme importance to realize and acknowledge the fact positive attitude can determine whether you are a splatter or bouncer. Thought there may be a small difference, nevertheless it can make a great impact in your life. Never underestimate its power.

But the question arises as to how we can deal effectively with discouragement. You may find some useful steps below to address this question:-


(a) To get it right, you must understand clearly the whole picture.
(b) Take a short look at the problem, but focus your attention on solutions.
(c) Take stock of yourself to discover your opportunities.
(d) Adopt a wide look of all possibilities and take the way which can lead you to a major breakthrough.
(e) Learn from those who have proven records and had overcome such a similar obstacle, if not identical.
(f) Be innovative and creative - at times, you need to modify the solution so as to solve your unique problems, which more than often not identical to others.


Bear in mind that only a small portion of people will lift you up because the truth is that successful people form a minority, and not majority.


It is important to actively tell yourself good things that will help you to think more positively rather than allowing negative messages from your past to influence your thinking and action.

Therefore, it is also important to use positive words because we must be aware that no one can motivate himself in a positive direction by continually using negative words.


Whatsoever decision you made, you must have faith in it. You can't have something you don't believe in. When you apply your faith in it, the result is a positive course of action that when persistently followed will almost always lead to success. When you believe in your ideas and in your abilities, and you trust in the Infinite Intelligence of the universe, you know that your thoughts and deeds will ultimately lead to a successful conclusion. You cannot fail.


The Law of Human Behavior says, " Sooner or later we will get what we expect." So, you must have the right expectation if you want success.


You must explore all the possibilities before you made a decision.


We must be aware that making decision is easier than managing it. But managing that decision is much more important than making that decision. Therefore, it is more important that you manage it in such a way that it is lasting and consistently with your decision.

Please feel free to comment on the above if you feel otherwise. Thank you in advance and look forward to hearing from you.

Trust the above steps will assist you to overcome discouragement and move beyond it. Never let yourself be held captive to it. So, set yourself free from it and make yourself a difference maker.

Thanks for your time. Please stay tuned.
