Often the situation can be very difficult and for you it’s easier to thing negatively. The story will understand those who are positive and torn trough joy in life. The true way we shall look at life and all its wonders. Please read the story.
Two men are seriously ill and in the same hospital room. For an hour each day, the nurses would let the man closest to the room’s only window sit up in order to help drain the fluid in his lungs.
The other man in the room spent all his time flat on his back.
As you can imagine, with little else to do, the men would talk for hours. They spoke about their families, homes, their lives in the military and where they had travelled.
And each day, the man sitting away from the window longed for the hour when his roommate would be able to sit up and describe the details of the world outside their room.
He would speak of children playing, of animals peacefully roaming and of happy families playing in the water.
Sadly, after months of this, the day arrived when the man closest to the window died in his sleep. After his body had been removed from the room and some time had passed, the other man asked if he could take the bed by the window. The nurses were happy to oblige him and they made the switch.
Once they were gone, the man slowly and painfully pulled himself up so he could take his first good look at the world outside the hospital room, the world whose description had brought him so much comfort.
To his dismay, he found that the view was not as vibrant as he’d been told; in fact, the window faced a blank wall.
Upset, the man called for the nurse and explained the situation.
“Why would he lie to me?” he questioned the nurse.
After thinking for a moment, the nurse looked at him and said:
“Maybe he just wanted to encourage you.”
This must be lesson to learn for all of us. We can do tremendous good for those who we love only by looking on the bright side.Even when we’re faced with what seems like an impenetrable brick wall, we can bring so much happiness and joy to those around us if we find positive ways of looking at the world.
