LOVED vs USED

Always remember...

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, they become destiny.

Here's a story related to those words..

"While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times ; not realizing he was using a wrench.

At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. When the child saw his father...with painful eyes he asked. "Dad, when will my fingers grow back?"

The man was so hurt and speechless ; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times. Devastated by his own actions...sitting in front of that car, he looked at the scrateches the child had written, "LOVE YOU DAD".

The next day, the man comitted suicide..."

LOVE and ANGER have no limits ; choose LOVE to have a beautiful and lovely life. Things are to be used and people are to be loved. But, the problems in today's world is that, People are used and things are loved...

During this year, let's be careful to keep this taught in mind :

"Things are to be used and People are to be loved"

Be yourself, this is the only day we have.
