- I interviewed my grandmother today as part of a research project I’m working on for my psychology course.
When I asked her if I wished her “good luck, “in her own words, she said,
” Success is when you look back on your life and believe in it with a smile on your face.”
- Today I asked my mentor – a very successful businessman since the 70s-what are the top 3 tips for success.
He smiled and said:
- Read what no one else is reading, think something that no one else is thinking, and do what no one else is doing.”
- Today, after a 72-hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me in the supermarket and hugged me tightly.
When he tensed, she realized I didn’t recognize her.
She released him with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said:
“9-11-2001 you carried me out of the World Trade Center.”
- Today, after I saw my dog get hit by a car while I was sitting on the side of the road, holding it and crying.
And before he died, he saw the tears on my face.
- Today at 7am I woke up feeling bad, but I decided I needed the money and he went back to work.
At 3 p.m., I was fired.
On the way home, I had a flat tire.
When I reached into the trunk for the spare tire, it was also flat.
A man drove up in a BMW, he gave me a ride, we talked, and then he offered me a job.
I’ll start tomorrow.
- Today is the day when my father, three brothers and two sisters stand around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered these coherent words before she died.
She simply said,
” I feel so loved right now. We should meet more often.”
- Today I kissed my father on the forehead when he died in a small hospital bed.
Within about 5 seconds of him leaving, I realized that this was the first time I’d kissed him since I was a little kid.
- Today, in the sweetest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling.
I laughed and said,
So you can help save our planet.”
He smiled again and
“That’s where I get my stuff, after all,” she said.
- Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, suddenly, I realized that I needed to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.
- A boy in a wheelchair, he saw me fighting desperately on crutches with a broken leg, and he offered it to me from my backpack and books.
He led me across campus to my classroom, and as he left, he said:
- Today I felt depressed because the biopsy results were cancerous.
When I got home, I opened the letter that says::
“I’m thinking about you today. If you need me, I’ll be right there.”
It was made by a friend of mine, whom I haven’t seen in 10 years.
- Today I have a trip to Kenya and met refugees from Zimbabwe.
He told me that he hadn’t eaten anything for more than 3 days, and he looked very ill and unhealthy.
My friend then offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating.
The first thing the man said was:
“We can split it up.”
