60 Ways To Make Life Simple Again

Story #2: The Weight of the Glass

Once upon a time a psychology professor walked around on a stage while teaching stress management principles to an auditorium filled with students. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the typical “glass half empty or glass half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, the professor asked, “How heavy is this glass of water I’m holding?”

Students shouted out answers ranging from eight ounces to a couple pounds.

She replied, “From my perspective, the absolute weight of this glass doesn’t matter. It all depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute or two, it’s fairly light. If I hold it for an hour straight, its weight might make my arm ache a little. If I hold it for a day straight, my arm will likely cramp up and feel completely numb and paralyzed, forcing me to drop the glass to the floor. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it feels to me.”

As the class shook their heads in agreement, she continued, “Your stresses and worries in life are very much like this glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and you begin to ache a little. Think about them all day long, and you will feel completely numb and paralyzed – incapable of doing anything else until you drop them.”

The moral: It’s important to remember to let go of your stresses and worries. No matter what happens during the day, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down. Don’t carry them through the night and into the next day with you. If you still feel the weight of yesterday’s stress, it’s a strong sign that it’s time to put the glass down. (Angel and I discuss this process of letting go in the Adversity and Self-Love chapters of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

Story #1: All the Difference in The World

Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home. There’s a lake located in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the water’s edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her.

This past Sunday my curiosity got the best of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her. As I got closer, I realized that the metal cage was in fact a small trap. There were three turtles, unharmed, slowly walking around the base of the trap. She had a fourth turtle in her lap that she was carefully scrubbing with a spongy brush.

“Hello,” I said. “I see you here every Sunday morning. If you don’t mind my nosiness, I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.”

She smiled. “I’m cleaning off their shells,” she replied. “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtle’s ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim. It can also corrode and weaken the shell over time.”

“Wow! That’s really nice of you!” I exclaimed.

She went on: “I spend a couple of hours each Sunday morning, relaxing by this lake and helping these little guys out. It’s my own strange way of making a difference.”

“But don’t most freshwater turtles live their whole lives with algae and scum hanging from their shells?” I asked.

“Yep, sadly, they do,” she replied.

I scratched my head. “Well then, don’t you think your time could be better spent? I mean, I think your efforts are kind and all, but there are fresh water turtles living in lakes all around the world. And 99% of these turtles don’t have kind people like you to help them clean off their shells. So, no offense… but how exactly are your localized efforts here truly making a difference?”

The woman giggled aloud. She then looked down at the turtle in her lap, scrubbed off the last piece of algae from its shell, and said, “Sweetie, if this little guy could talk, he’d tell you I just made all the difference in the world.”

The moral: You can change the world – maybe not all at once, but one person, one animal, and one good deed at a time. Wake up every morning and pretend like what you do makes a difference. It does. WRITTEN BY: MARC CHERNOFF

Beware of Fishes without Scales and Fins

Fish with scales AND fins are equipped with a digestive system that prevents the absorption of poisons and toxins into their flesh from the waters they call home.

Catfish have fins, but do not have scales. These scavengers are primarily bottom feeders and have digestive systems designed to absorb toxins from the water. Clams, lobster, shrimp, crabs, mussels and squid do not have scales or fins and are believed to be highly toxic. They naturally absorb all the toxins in the water they live in. Interestingly, lobster and crabs are crustaceans and are a part of the arthropod family, which include caterpillars, cockroaches, and spiders!

Fish with Scales and Fins
Albacore, Bass, Carp, Flounder, Grouper, Haddock, Halibut, Herring, Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Orange Roughy, Perch, Pike, Pollock, Salmon, Sardines, Snapper, Sole, Tilapia, Trout, Tuna, Walleye, Whitefish, and Whiting are just some of the most popular fish with both fins and scales.

Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal; Excellent Poetry by Akhtar Sheerani

Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal, Is Paap Ki Basti Se
Nafrat Gah-E- Aalam Se, Laanat Gah-E-Hasti Se
In Nafs Paraston Se, Is Nafs Parasti Se

Door Aur Kaheen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Hum Prem Pujaari Hain Tu Prem Kanhayya Hai
Tu Prem Kanhayya Hay Ye Prem Ki Nayya Hai
Ye Prem Ki Nayya Hay, Tu Is Ka Khiwayya Hai

Kuch Fik’r Nahin Le Chal
Ai Ishq Keheen Le Chal

Be-Rehm Zamaane Ko Ab Chod Rahe Hain Hum
Be-Dard Azizon Se Munh Mod Rahe Hain Hum
Jo Aas Ke Thi Woh Bhi Ab Tod Rahe Hain Hum

Bas Taab Nahin Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Ye Jabr-Kadah, Aazad Afkaar Ka Dushman Hai
Armaanon Ka Qaatil Hai Umeedon Ka Rahzan Hai
Jazbaat Ka Maqtal Hai, Jazbaat Ka Mad-Fun Hai

Chal Yaan Se Kaheen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Aapas Main Chhal Aur Dhoke Sansaar Ki Reetain Hain
Is Paap Ki Nagri Main Ujri Si Pretain Hain
Haan Niyaaya Ki Haarain Hain, An-Niyaaya Ki Jeetain Hain

Sukh Chain Nahin, Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Ye Dard Bhari Duniya Basti Hai Gunahon Ki
Dil Chaak Umeedon Ki, Saffaak Nigahon Ki
Zulmon Ki, Jafaon Ki, Aahon Ki, Karahon Ki

Hain Ghum Se Hazeen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Aankhon Main Samaai Hai, Ik Khwaab-Numa Duniya
Taaron Ki Tarah Raushan, Mehtaab-Numa Duniya
Jannat Ki Tarah Rangeen, Shadaab-Numa Duniya

Lillah Waheen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Ai Ishq Humain Le Chal Ik Noor Ki Vaadi Main
Ik Khwaab Ki Duniya Main, Ik Toor Ki Vaadi Main
Khoron Ke Khayalaat-E- Masroor Ki Vaadi Main

Ta-Khuld-E- Bareen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Maghrib Ki Hawaon Se Aawaz Si Aati Hai
Aur Hum Ko Samandar Ke Us Paar Bulaati Hai
Shayad Koi Tanhaai Ka Daiss Bataati Hai

Chal Us Ke Qareen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Ik Aisi Fiza Jis Tak Ghum Ki Na Rasaai Ho
Duniya Ki Hawa Jis Main Sadiyon Se Na Aai Ho
Ai Ishq Jahan Tu Ho Aur Teri Khudaai Ho

Ai Ishq Waheen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal


Ik Aisi Jagah Jis Main Insaan Na Baste Hon
Ye Makr-O Jafa Pesha Haiwaan Na Baste Hon
Insaan Ki Qaba Main Yeh Shaitaan, Na Baste Hon

To Khouf Nahi Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

In Chaand Sitaron Ke Bikhre Huwe Shehron Main
In Noor Ki Kirnon Main Tehri Hoi Lehron Main
Thehri Hui Lehron Main, Soi Hui Nehron Main

Ai Hizr-E- Haseen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Ik Aisi Bahisht Aain Vaadi Main Pahunch Jain
Jis Main Kabhi Duniya Ke Ghum Dil Ko Na Tadpaain
Aur Jis Ki Baharon Main Jeene Ke Maze Aain

Le Chal, Tu Waheen Le Chal
Ai Ishq Kaheen Le Chal

Pain is a source of discomfort, but at the same time, it gives an awareness and alertness to find the cause. In this way, it is a blessing even though it causes some loss.

As are the children disinherited for their dis- obedience so also it is possible that the parents may be disowned by the children for not fulfillling their bounden duties.
