Notes and Thoughts-2010

They helped each other

I was at the subway station waiting when all of a sudden the blind man appeared. He looked a little lost and I thought to myself there is no way he will able to board the train on his own. After a few seconds I went up to him to offer some help and he politely refused so I then went ahead into the train and sat down and started to get something to read. I looked up and saw the blind man pushing another man in a wheelchair. They got into the train right before the door closed.

Allah does find a way to help the disabled.

Children
I was sitting on the subway in Toronto. Little girl in a stroller sucking her thumb. Mom was  holding the stroller and mom and dad chatting. The dad was about to get off at the next stop and he kissed his daughter. The little girl told her dad, "Now kiss Mommy". The dad kissed his wife on the cheeks and left the subway.

This made me realise that kids don't just want to be loved, they want their parents to love each other too.

Don't be harsh on people, everyone evolve emotionally and spiritually at different rates.

Integrity

Integrity is another word for honesty, with a twist. It means being true to what you know is right and being honest with everyone, including yourself. You don't cheat on tests, you don't lie to your parents about what you did last night, you don't talk nice to someone's face and rip on them behind their back. People with integrity are whole or complete, like an integer in your math book. They know where they stand and stand there.

How is integrity a source of self-worth? Having it leads to inner peace. And if you have inner peace you can handle most anything, even mean girls, heart-wrenching breakups, and major embarrassments.

Now, if you're like most other teens, you'll make mistakes and have to work on this integrity thing. No one's perfect. So, if you mess up, make up. Never try to cover up a mistake. It only makes things worse. NBA coach Rick Pitino said: "Lying makes a problem part of the future; truth makes a problem part of the past."

Kaberi Chatterjee - Falling in Love ( CanadianImmigrant.ca)
I read this article in Canadian Immigrant. I have the same sentiments about Canada. I truly love this country, because I feel very safe here.

Kaberi said after she came here she was very homesick, she felt her only companions were the little squirrels. Within a month she realised that she was judgemental about this beautiful counry. She said everything worked like clockwork, only because there were very honest sincere honet people behind it. She mentioned about the sidewalks when she walked down how meticulously the cars and pedestrian followed the rules.

Honesty is rewarded and promises kept. A 10 o'clock appointment meant a 10 o'clock .
