My sister sent this to me today. I thought it was a nice thing to read on the first day of January of the new year 2018. Twenty eighteen! I can’t believe it’s already eighteen years past the millennium!
So here’s this thought for all of you. My wonderful friends near and far. We’ve heard stuff like this before but it never hurts to hear it again.
My sister says she thinks this was said by Steve Jobs. If it wasn’t said by him they are still good words.
“I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In others’
eyes, my life is an epitome of success.
However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, wealth is
only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.
At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I
realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride
in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death.
You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you
but you cannot have someone to bear the sickness for you. Material
things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends…
Treat yourself well. Cherish others.
As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a
$300 or $15 watch – they both tell the same time
Whether we carry a $300 or $15 wallet or handbag – the amount of money inside is the same.
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $2 wine – the hangover is the same.
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq. ft. – loneliness is the same.
You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the
material things of this world.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – you go down with it.
Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old
friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk
with, sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven
& earth, that is true happiness!!
Here’s what I think now that I’m dying:
1. Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be HAPPY.
2. Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicine as your food.
3. The one who loves you will never leave you for somebody else because even
if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.
4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human.
5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die.
In between, you’re the one who has to manage!
