Get Off The Scale! You are beautiful

Green Island Near the Ocean during Daytime

Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned.

Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life.

You are beautiful!

STYLE OF CONVERSATION

wp1

Conversation or communication gives some message, which has its own importance but the thing that can make it different and most important is style of conversation.

We   might heard  many times people complaining that they have been insulted. This is the style, this is the way  which make it happen to feel like “insulted”. So the way of saying is more important than  the said words.

We can take examples from our daily life. Such as in response to some favor given by someone, we say “thanks” with a smile or say so with clenched teeth and angry eyes. Look that due to the way of speech how same word changes its meaning.

Important points of style of conversation are;

– accent loudness of voice

apparent manner

high or low pitch

and facial expressions are all important.

In addition to words, non verbal and audible signs also signify the actual value of message.

So it is the style of conversation that explains the meaning of words and shows the effect of words on us. 

So not only think before speech but also make the  effective style of saying words which cannot make others feel “uncomfortable”, “hurt” or “insulted”.

Families are made in the heart

People Sitting on Green Grass

There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents.

Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.

THROW A STONE INTO LAKE

b1.png

Between your fingers you hold a stone and throw it into flowing water. The effect might not be easy to see. There will be a small ripple where the stone breaks the surface and then a splash, muffled by the rush of the surrounding river. That’s all.
Throw a stone into a lake. The effect will be not only visible but also far more lasting. The stone will disrupt the still waters. A circle will form where the stone hit the water, and in a flash that circle will multiply into another, then another. Before long the ripples caused by one plop will expand until they can be felt everywhere along the mirrored surface of the water.

p83

Only when the circles reach the shore will they stop and die out.
If a stone hits a river, the river will treat it as yet another commotion in its already tumultuous course.
Nothing unusual. Nothing unmanageable.
If a stone hits a lake, however, the lake will never be the same again.

Creativity in the words of Steve Jobs

p116(my painting )

In the words of Steve Jobs:

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.”
