When you were born...

When I was born, I cried and people rejoiced......

Ever Wonder?

When we are born, the first thing we do is cry.

Is it the cry for happiness or of pain?

As it is said that when an infant is born he/she is pure and is an avatar of God so, is it because we can fore see our future when we are born? So, then do we cry because of all the heart aches and sorrow and pain we will have to go through? Or do we cry to relieve the tension of our muscles since were squeezed in the womb for nine months?

In this lifetime I want to attain so much, that when I die people cry while, I rejoice.

Questions to ponder on

What is this life time anyway? What should we really do to make people remember us? How can we make this living worth it? How can we make a difference each day in people's lives so that they remember us?

For once, let's think about our society we live in, rather than what we want from the society. As our President, John F. Kennedy once said, " Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country."

Taking baby steps, this society is our country. If we can make a difference in the lives of other people and have made their day by thinking of them first. Then in our heart, we know that we have made someone happy. That feeling of putting someone ahead of us makes all the difference in their lives and in the end we could feel proud of ourself by seeing them smile.

Hi Deborah,

So refreshing to see you here :)

Yes, it is difficult but if we try to make that choice; life would be so good to reminiscence about it esp when we get all old and groggy...lol

memories IF made by helping someone can definitely help us walk a mile when our legs would refuse to co-operate. Cheers!
