The Brighter Half Of Life!
The river was a mile away. The gardener used to tie two pots on either sides of a stick carrying it on his shoulder, which he took it to his master’s house daily. One of the pots had a small hole. Still the gardener carried it to the master’s house. But the pot was not satisfied with what it was doing. He felt his capability was higher than what he is achieving. Then he started comparing itself with the other pot on the other side of the stick, who delivered full pot when they reached. He felt sorry for the gardener, that he has this unfateful pot.One fine morning he said this to the gardener, “I’m sorry, for I am not giving you all what you need out of me.”
“And why do you feel so?” Asked the gardener.
“You want me to give you a full pot of water, but by the time you reach the master’s house, I’m half empty”. Responded the pot.
“Today, notice and enjoy the environment on your path.”
That day as they reached the master’s house, the gardener emptied the pots and while returning the pot was again sorry. The gardener asked the pot, “What did you see while going to the master’s house?”
“Beautiful flowers and butterflies”, replied the pot.
“You don’t know that I keep you on the right side everyday just because you water them on your way. The flowers you saw in the morning were planted by you. Don’t feel you are not giving you best. You are giving all you can. “Moral:
You may not be perfect in one or two tasks, Or you might be an expert in another way, in another field. Don’t feel ‘why I can’t do this’ , Feel ‘Wow, I can’t do this’. Because you don’t need to do everything. But the most important thing, What you can do and what you do should be done with whole heart. Life is more beautiful than we ever thought. Grudging over some issue would pain us more than anyone else.
