We all love stories! Stories that have a beautiful message to remember, stories that someday could be someone’s survival guide. This story could start with: “Once upon a time…” But it starts with: “When God created woman He was working late on the 6th day…
An Angel came by and asked: ”Why to spend so much time on her?”
The Lord answered: “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?
The Angel was impressed: “Just two hands…Impossible! And this is the standard model?”
The Angel came closer and touched the woman: “But you have made her so soft, Lord!”
“She is soft – said the Lord – but I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.”
“Can she think?” the Angel asked.
The Lord answered: “Not only she can think, but she can also reason and negotiate.”
The Angel touched her cheeks…“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”
“She is not leaking… It is a tear” the Lord corrected the Angel.
“What is it for?” asked the Angel.
The Lord said: “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the Angel: “Lord, you are a genius. You have thought of everything. A woman is indeed marvellous”.
The Lord said: “She is indeed…She has strength that amazes a man.
The Angel asked: “So she is a perfect being?!”
The Lord replied: “No. She has just one drawback. She often forgets what she is worth.”
Only one drawback, only one defect is all it takes to muddle a woman’s life; if she doesn’t reform it, of course.
And it ALL DEPENDS ON US because we are the designers of our days, “we are the authors of our life stories.” I’m sure many of you have heard or read this quote. I have it written on my coffee mug – to remind me of my first steps in meditation and wisdom with Vikas Malkani and SoulCentre.
It’s indeed true. Wherever we live, whatever we do, it should be VALUABLE to us, it should increase our confidence and help us enjoy our lives, and go through life's challenges with a smile. Is it possible?
I used to ask myself these questions: Can we take the very best of our lives? Can we make our experience incredible and unique? Can we turn obstacles into great opportunities? Can we start our days with a grateful heart? Can we make Today the Best Day?
The answer is: YES! It’s ALWAYS YES!
All we have to do is trust our instincts and listen to our inner voice. With no rules, just following our hearts…Just following the chosen course until success – whatever it means. But definitely, the course is PRECIOUS to us.
On a final note, it’s never late to say: “When life begins…” and make it worthy by never forgetting what you are worth!
