Today, as I was busy catching up on my work after missing on some of the self declared milestones,  Damcho forwarded me the story "Used vs Loved" in wechat. Scrolling down the whole length of the story, I said "I can't spare my time to read whatever it's all about". On a second thought, I considered reading it as she would never forward it to me if it do not touch her heart. I 'm sure most of you must have read this story, which I believe is going around in social media given the virality of the message. Here I am, reproducing the wechat message forwarded to me by my wife. It is slightly long but worth reading it.

While a man was polishing his new car, his 4 year old son picked up a stone and scratched lines on the side of the car. In anger, the man took the child's hand and hit it many times; not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all his fingers due to multiple fractures. 

When the child saw his father.....with painful eyes he asked, 'Dad when will my fingers grow back?' The man was so hurt and speechless; he went back to his car and kicked it a lot of times. Devastated by his own actions.......sitting in front of that car he looked at the scratches; the child had written 'LOVE YOU DAD'.

The next day that man committed suicide.

Anger and Love has no limits; choose the latter to have a beautiful, lovely life.

Things are to be used and people are to be loved, But the problem in today's world is that, People are used and things are loved.

During this year, let's be careful to keep this thought in mind: Things are to be used, but People are to be loved ... Be yourself....This is the only day we HAVE.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. 
Watch your words; they become actions. 
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits they become character; 
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

If you don't pass this on to anybody, nothing bad will happen; if you do, you might change someone's life.

Do you know the relationship between your two eyes? They blink together, move together, cry together, see things together and sleep together, even though they never see each other.

 I'm glad a friend forwarded this to me as a reminder.
God bless you; I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Thank you Dear for forwarding it to me. This will serve as a gentle reminder to be watchful of my thoughts and actions.
