Mother had 3 virgin daughters who were all getting married in quick succession. As the mother was concerned about their first experiences, she made them all promise to send a postcard from the honeymoon with a few words about what transpired.
The first girl sent a card from Hawaii two days after the wedding The card said nothing but: ‘Nescafe’
The mother was puzzled at first… she went to her kitchen and found the Nescafe jar. It said: ‘Good till the last drop’.
Mom blushed, but was pleased for her daughter.
The second girl sent the card from Vermont a week after the wedding, and the card read: ‘Rothmans’
The mother found her husband’s cigarettes, and she read from the pack: ‘Extra Long. King Size’
She was again slightly embarrassed but still happy for her daughter.
The third girl left for her honeymoon in Auckland, New Zealand. Mom waited for a week, nothing. Another week went by and still nothing. Then after a whole month, a card finally arrived.
Written on it with shaky handwriting were the words ‘Air New Zealand’
Mom took out her latest YOU magazine, flipped through the pages fearing the worst, and finally found the ad for Air NZ.
The ad said: ‘Ten times a day, seven days a week, both ways.’
Once You Learn These 8 Hard Truths About Life, You’ll Become Much Stronger
The only real way to live a happy and fulfilled life is to accept your life as it is.
If you have trouble spending the day, relax and watch these 8 truths. Breathe. Everything will be alright.
1. Everyone You Love is Going to Die
It’s a terrible and depressing thought, but the truth is undeniable. But learn from it. Improving your relationships for as long as you can and enjoying your friends, family and loved ones while you still have the opportunity.
2. We Give Our Lives Meaning
According to Buddhists, humans create their own world with their own thoughts and actions, which means that we are truly the ones who give meaning to our life and our selves (or not). Everything is a matter of choice and free will, and we must remember that we are not concerned with what we do not have and what we want. Concentrate on what you want.
3. The Perfect Partner Doesn’t Exist
Just as no one is perfect, no partner is perfect. However, it is always necessary to consciously acknowledge and accept this harsh truth. If you do not do this, you may miss almost perfect opportunities for a meaningful and lasting relationship, or you will turn away from these scenarios. Relationships are like works of art; You and your partner are tools with which you can create artistic perfection and harmony.
4. Life Is A Game
Although human beings may not have an “extra life” or “free life” in reality, we have many options to correct our behavior and try again in our lifetime. It is important to stick to it until you cross all levels of life and “beat” the game recognizing happiness and long-term success.
5. Everything Ends
This is another hard truth that seems obvious but is often ignored or unrecognized. Keeping this in mind reminds people to enjoy what they live while it’s fun. Things can change dramatically overnight or in a minute. It is therefore essential to take advantage of the present rather than wait for an even more uncertain future.
6. Be Romantic About The Little Things
Especially as people get older, romance always seems to be a lost art. However, romance involves imagination and almost electrifying feelings and emotions. Make sure you experience meaningful love rather than thinking about it.
7. Be A Realist About The Big Things
Although creativity is crucial, it must be balanced and based on sound intelligence and reasoning. Since most things require some time and energy, it is essential to know how long it is difficult and how different aspects of life are (and will be) difficult.
8. Figure Out A Way Or Don’t Complain
There are innumerable things to complain about in life, but there are also countless problems to be solved. It is far more productive to spend time and energy solving problems than complaining. Think about how often people react to another person’s complaint as soon as they leave the area and say, “If they do not like it, why do not they do anything to change it?”
