sharing as received...
This story changed my life and I thought maybe it could change others too, so I'm sharing it with you.
This story was told to me by my sister, whom it happened to.
She was really upset because she hadn't see or spoken to her best friend Jim in a couple of weeks.
Finally he show up at her door and commands her to get dressed and go riding with him.
So she finally does
As they were riding , they passed a garden full of flowers
Jim says "Do you see those flowers ?
"Yes ,"she says.
"Do you think that when someone steps on those flowers that they lie there and feel sorry for themselves ?
"No , they immediately start to mend their wounds so they can heal , and grow strong and healthy"
They ride a little further and Jim points up in a tree , 'You see those squirrels up there ? Do you think that when people shoot at them they go hide forever "?
"No 'she says.
About that time the ocean cames into sight.
Jim Says "You see that ocean out there ?
Do you think that when there's a hurricane out there that the ocean doesn't go back out because it's afraid to face the storm ?
No she says.
"Then, why have you stopped living because you have been hurt?
That story really hit me like a ton of bricks
The worst part was the fact that Jim died a short time later , And that's when she realized how much precious time she wasted.
Why have you stopped living because you been Hurt?
Have a Beautiful Day !!!
