An old man lived alone in a village. He wanted to shovel his potatogarden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helpedhim, was in prison.The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:
Dear Son,I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plantmy potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, becauseyour mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting too old to bedigging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would beover. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.Love,DadShortly, the old man received this telegram: "For Heaven's sake, Dad,don't dig up the garden!! That's where I buried the GUNS!!"

अशीच असते.. ही कातर वेळ

आठवणी त्या तुझ्या नी माझ्या
येउनी दाटती ह्या अश्या अवेळी...
करुनी देती जाणीव मला गं ..की
कातर वेळ ही अशीच असते ....
चैन ना जीवाला ना विश्रांती
सुचे ना काही सैरभर मन ही
शोधू तुला की सावरू स्वताला
कातर वेळ ही अशीच असते ....
सखे तुझा विरह जीवघेणा
कसा मान्य करू कळेना
आयुष्याची सांजवेळ ही
तुझ्या विना ती साहू कशी मी
सखे गं...
खरच ...
कातर वेळ ही अशीच असते ....

One Minute Power Tip

One Minute Power Tip:
1. People change things that are vital and essential to them. Whether it's becoming a better parent, quitting drugs or getting a promotion, when something is absolutely ESSENTIAL, human beings find a way to do it. An acquaintance of mine tried without success to change his lifestyle for years. After his heart attack, he became a vegetarian and quickly lost almost fifty pounds.
Many of the things we want aren't "that important" to us. They are desirable, but they are not "necessary" and so we put them off, we become distracted, we "forget" and things don't change. When you want your goals as badly as a kid wants a new toy, or as badly as a teenager wants a driver's license, or as badly as you want your next breath of air, you'll find a way.
2. People under-estimate the power of their environment. Many people have attended a seminar where they renewed their goals and vowed that "this time nothing will stop me!" Then they fly home, walk in the door and are hit with "can you pick up pizza on your way home?" They go to the office and are hit with paperwork, phone messages or whatever, and they are quickly defeated. The people, places, demands and "furniture" of our lives keep us trapped. To change yourself, change your surroundings!
3. People forget that change always starts as an "inside job." Change always begins with an idea. Every invention starts in someone's imagination, every new skill begins by believing we can "do it." Every lasting change happens inside our head first, and in the outer world second. Too often we get that sequence reversed and say, "If I were more successful, I'd be more generous." It doesn't work that way. Start first with yourself and your beliefs. Your outer world will quickly "catch up."

7 Surprising Keys to Happiness

7 Surprising Keys to Happiness
Have you ever had one of those days where you just wish you were in a better mood? Perhaps you tried to shift your state of mind to something better but struggled to achieve it.
Sometimes we get stuck in our own 'stinking thinking' and forget how easy it is to feel happier, so here are seven simple ways to lift your mood that many people have found useful and some of them may surprise you!
1. Go for a walk.
Most folk know that going for a short daily walk is one of the best forms of exercise. If you can, go into a natural environment with flowers, trees and birds. What will you notice first? The different shades of greenery, the fresh smell of country air, the bird sounds, or the sunlight shining through the tree foliage.
2. Listen to some quality music.
Music creates magical effects. It can shift the listeners state within moments. Why not dig out that album you haven't listened to in ages or why not tune in your radio to something you've never listened to before.
3. Think of others less fortunate.
The fact that you are reading this article suggests that you are probably much better off than many, many people on this planet! What if you were to imagine being in space looking down on the amazing beautiful earth, noticing all the oceans and lands with the clouds above... And then thinking about the fact that there are many human beings that are starving, homeless and in lots of pain... Allow your compassion for them to grow.
4. Read something radical!
How many different types of magazines can you get these days?! Have you ever waltzed into a big newsagents and just browsed through the magazine racks? It's incredible. Why not buy a magazine you wouldn't normally buy. You never know you may discover something wonderful!
5. Laughing at laughter.
Have you ever had the experience when you just laugh for no good reason? Isn't it great! Laughter is one of the best ways to lift your spirits. Can't think of anything funny? Try grinning at yourself insanely in the mirror and notice how difficult it becomes to control your giggle muscles!
6. Simple breathing meditation.
A great exercise that you can do anywhere is a simple breathing meditation. No need to dress in orange robes. Simply find yourself in a comfortable sitting position with your back straight. Now close your eyes and become aware of the flow of air into and out of your nostrils. That's it! Do this for 10/15 minutes and you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised how you feel afterward.
7. Doodling just for fun!
Remember when you were young and you used to doodle with crayons for hours. Kids love drawing silly little pictures, why not adults? So get some pens, pencils, crayons or whatever you have and just draw - doodle away until your state of mind shifts.
You might agree that these are all pretty simple and that's what's so good about them. Making changes, mundane or profoundly life-changing, are easily and quickly achieved by putting into action simple ideas, methods, tools and techniques.
