Patience is a precious art everyone should master. Things will never always go in our way. Understanding and adjusting ourselves to the situation will always simplify the matter, right ? Human mentality is really typical. When we do mistakes, we try to compromise. But when someone else does mistake, we command for Justice !
There is no reason why I'm explaining all these. I recently read an old Joke. In fact, rather being just a joke, it tries to teach something out of Life. It is just a 'pick from the attic', so you might have heard this one. Just go on reading.....
'James was cleaning out the attic one day when he came across a ticket from a shoe repair shop. The date stamped on the ticket showed it was over eleven years old ! He felt sure the shoes would not still be there, but decided to stop by and check anyway.
He handed the ticket to the man behind the counter, who scowled at the date. "Just a minute," said the clerk. "I'll have to look for these." He disappeared into a back room. After a few minutes, the clerk called out, "What do you know - here they are!" "That's terrific!" said James, hardly believing his good fortune.
The man came back to the counter, empty-handed. "They'll be ready by Thursday," he said !!'
Just guess the response of James to the shop keeper's words. I really don't what James might have done, but here we need to look at two things; Patience and Understanding.
All living beings tend to forget almost everything in time. Understanding the situation and being patient plays a great role in our lives. We will never get the nose which is cut when we were angry. So, remember to understand ! Being patient makes one strong. But well, there is a limit for everything. Extremes are always dangerous ! Being too good is as dangerous as being too bad.
So, when it is with in a limit, remember, be Patient, be Happy :)
