one day,according to an old story,a man with a serious illness was wheeled into hospital room where another patient was resting on a bed next to the window.As the two became friends,the one next to the window would look out of it and then spend the next few hours delighting his bedridden companion with vivid describe of thw world outside.Some days he would describe the beauty of the tress in the park across from hospital and how the leaves dances in the wind.On the other days,he would entertain his friend with step-by-step replays of the things people were doing as they walked by the hospital .However,as time went on,the bedridden man grew frustated at his inability to observe the wonders his friend described.Eventually he grew to dislike him and then to hate him intensely.

One night,during a particularly baf coughing fit,the patient next to the window stopped breathung.Rather yhan pressing the button gor help,yhe othet man chose to do nothing.The next morning the patient who had given his friend so much happiness by recounting the sights outside the window was  pronounced dead and wheeled out of the hospital room.The other man quickly asked that his bed be placed next to the window, a request that was compiled with by the attending nurse.But as he looked out the window,he discovered something that made him shake:the window faced a stark brick wall.His former roommate had conjured up the incredible sights that hr described in his imagination as a loving gesture to make the world of his friend a little bit better during a difficult time.He had acted out of selfless love.

This story never fails to create a shift in my own perspective when i think about it.To live happier,more fulfilling lives,when we encountered a difficult circumstance, we must keep shifting our perspective and  overselves,Is their a wiser,more enlightened way of looking at this seemingly negative situation?”.

We walk this planet for such short time.In over,all schemes of things,our lives are mere blips on the canvas of eternity.so have the wisdom to enjoy the journey and savour the process.images (2)
