FB story

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill.
In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this."
He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.
He then asked, "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.
"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. "Now who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air. "My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
You are special - Don't ever forget it!

Have been depressed. Cheered myself with my favourite Japanese delights. To remind myself of the youthful, hopeful, happier days back when I used to wait tables in a Japanese restaurant.

Mr Sahay is 75 , he commutes daily with a bag full of puppets and a water bottle which is heavy, making it harder for him to walk.He earns for his wife, married daughter and her children. He is Retired Bank manager has spent all his saving for his son's education in chartered accountancy. His son moved to Bahrain without informing him and after some time a news comes to him that his son  has died in an accident. Now he is the only breadwinner for his family.
I watched a Taiwan tv programme, something about the most amazing transportation around the world. They featured the trains in India, where people just climb on the roof ; to the amazing European state of the art trains.
However, the ONE section of that list was the one in the Haiti river, where man would carry you over their shoulder for a small fee.
One to one.
The bridge charges a fee too pricey for the locals, and no man-made transportation is allowed near the river. Therefore, the villagers thought of this.
I've been trying hard to search for a pic, but fail to...

I swallowed hard, seeing how some men are trying to make a living on this earth...

Had a bad, dark morning.
But it lightened up the moment I see the 3-year-old showed me the Gangnam move.
So cute...

Then, went to see a doctor to get an MC.
The doctor recommended a new med for my anxiety.
I hope it'd work.

Day continued with me going to the mall.
Bought some groceries and had dinner with a good old friend.
Shared many good conversation topics.

So,... it's now time to sleep.
All is well.
The morning awaits me.

We made ourselves lunch and were sipping green tea.
I told my companions that this is one of those very rare occasions when I can be , "sipping a moment of clarity."
