HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, PAPA

UPDATED

FATHER'S DAY: In every thing we do, there are two persons in life we shall never forget: Papa and Mama. 
Happy Father' Day

 Distance does test the brave men and women who venture across the ocean
In their slumber or sleep their dreams are many
Life is hectic, life is full of all things we do
But today is special as you are special
We pause to thank you
Happy Father' Day
Love you, Papa
Will always...

Integrity, Reputation & Respect: PNG Hunter Constricted And Subdued by a Moran but Lived

A Hunter on his hunting trip went straight into a trap. It wasn’t an ordinary trap. A large snake ‘the Moran’, hoping to catch Wild Pigs in their tracks, grabbed the Hunter.

The Hunter's reaction is something to contemplate. Any wild pig would have squealed, oinked and wrestled with the snake until it could fight no more. But the expert Hunter did the opposite. He didn’t make a noise or move one bit. He held his breath and played dead.

Moran’s strong muscles contracted to drain the life out of the hunter's body. With every tightened grip his bones seemed to have snapped. In fact, it was NOT his bones that broke but bow and arrows he was carrying.

Satisfied that the Hunter was constricted and subdued, the Moran relaxed its grip and jaw muscles before swallowing its catch. In that split second the Hunter had escaped. His experience didn't scare him. It made him stronger. You could guessed what happened...he trapped the monster snake and took it, alive, to the village for everyone to see.The Hunter's reputation in the village was intact. He is not only revered, but also respected

Cool, calm and collected: this story reminds me of the three Cs. If you are faced with a constricting situation, you can hold your nerve, analyse the treat, use what you have and live. Or you can fight it till you can not fight it anymore.

Fighting a losing battle is just stupid. Keep your integrity in any confrontation: keep your reputation, earn respect. 


INSPIRED: Do not focus on things that only matter, but things that matter the MOST in life

(I came across this message somewhere on Facebook and thought I should re-post it. It is such a wonderful story.)

A teacher stood before his new class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he picked up a very large and empty jar and proceeded to filling it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full and they agreed that it was.
Without waiting for the answer the teacher then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was, now, full - they agreed it was.
The teacher next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Off course the sand filled up every space. He asked once more if the jar was full.The students responded with a unanimous "yes."
The teacher then produced a can of beer from under the table and poured the entire content into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed..........

Now, said the teacher as the laughter subsided.
I want you to recognize that this JAR represents your LIFE. The GOLF balls are the important things like your FAMILY, your CHILDREN, your HEALTH, your FRIENDS, your favourite PASSIONS and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your LIFE would still be full.
The PEBBLES are the other things that matter like your JOB, your HOUSE and your CAR. The SAND is EVERYTHING else.... the SMALL STUFF,  both the positive and negative everyday stuff!
If you put the SAND into the JAR first, he continued, there is no room for the PEBBLES or the GOLF balls, the same goes for your LIFE.
If you spend all your time and energy on the SMALL STUFF you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Spend time with your children, spend time with your parents, visit your grandparents, take your spouse out for dinner, make love and the list goes on. Like there will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the GOLF balls first the things that really matter, set your priorities right and the rest is just SAND.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The teacher smiled and said, I’m glad you asked... "The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a Beer with a friend."
