Today what should I write.
A story, a trending news, a joke. Whatever, it’s my choice. Isn’t it!! .
Yes, in life everything is our choice.
Let me share a beautiful story,
Once a man got lost in a desert. The water in his flask had run out two days ago, and he was on his last legs. He knew that if he didn’t get some water soon, he would surely die. The man saw a small hut ahead of him. He thought it would be a mirage or maybe a hallucination, but having no other option, he moved toward it. As he got closer, he realized it was quite real. So he dragged his tired body to the door with the last of his strength.
The hut was not occupied and seemed like it had been abandoned for quite some time. The man entered into it, hoping against hope that he might find water inside.
His heart skipped a beat when he saw what was in the hut – a water hand pump…… It had a pipe going down through the floor, perhaps tapping a source of water deep under-ground.
He began working the hand pump, but no water came out. He kept at it and still nothing happened. Finally he gave up from exhaustion and frustration. He threw up his hands in despair. It looked as if he was going to die after all.
Then the man noticed a bottle in one corner of the hut. It was filled with water and corked up to prevent evaporation.
He uncorked the bottle and was about to gulp down the sweet life-giving water, when he noticed a piece of paper attached to it. Handwriting on the paper read : “Use this water to start the pump. Don’t forget to fill the bottle when you’re done.”
He had a dilemma. He could follow the instruction and pour the water into the pump, or he could ignore it and just drink the water.
What to do? If he let the water go into the pump, what assurance did he have that it would work? What if the pump malfunctioned? What if the pipe had a leak? What if the underground reservoir had long dried up?
But then… maybe the instruction was correct. Should he risk it? If it turned out to be false, he would be throwing away the last water he would ever see.
Hands trembling, he poured the water into the pump. Then he closed his eyes, said a prayer, and started working the pump.
He heard a gurgling sound, and then water came gushing out, more than he could possibly use. He luxuriated in the cool and refreshing stream. He was going to live!!
After drinking his fill and feeling much better, he looked around the hut. He found a pencil and a map of the region. The map showed that he was still far away from civilization, but at least now he knew where he was and which direction to go.
He filled his flask for the journey ahead. He also filled the bottle and put the cork back in. Before leaving the hut, he added his own writing below the instruction: “Believe me, it works!”
In the above story, it was the man’s choice, whether to use the water to start the pump or to drink that.
Though he was in a dilemma state, still he chose to use the water to start the pump, which helped him to get enough water.
Like this, in your life, everything is your choice.
– To love, or not love someone.
– To care, or not to care someone.
– To work, or not to work
– To have faith, or not to have faith.
– To stay positive, or to be negative.
– To help anyone, or not to help anyone.
– To quit, or not to quit.
– To take revenge, or not to take revenge.
– To forget, or not to forget (bad memories)
– To move on, or not to move on. And so on.
Everything is your choice.
One of my friends once told me
“Every individual’s life, is all about the choice he/she gets, and the decision of that choice he/she makes”.
So, make a choice in such a way, so that in future, you will not regret for anything..
Have a good day.
Keep smiling ❣️
