We might be miles away for a while, I might not get to see you smile or hear you laugh or even watch you sleep, but Darling, you know that the true test of love is distance, for it's said that distance brings people closer together.
I am writing you this letter to tell you that my love for you is so real that I can't find any words to describe my feelings for you. At the same time I would like to thank you for all your patience while our relationship had to go through high waves and hard rocks. My love for you has grown so strong that I can never imagine a life without you now.
I will always be yours no matter what the world turns out to be. My heart will always yearning for your love and care forever. I love you always………………!
A Frenchman and an Italian were sitting next to an American on an overseas flight. They begun discussing their home lives. 'Last night I made love to my wife four times,' the Frenchman bragged. 'This morning she made me delicious crepes and told me how much she adored me.
'Last night I made love to my wife six times,' said the Italian. 'This morning she made me a wonderful omelet and told me she could never, never love another man.'
The Frenchman turned to the silent American. 'And how many times did you make love to your wife last night?
'Once,' he replied.
'Only once! said the Italian. 'And what did she say to you this morning?
A student sees a monkey outside and looks at it…and professor scolds him saying ' Why are you looking at the monkey when I am in the CLASS !
Well ….Yes…I do cry!
I have cried a lot in my life….I have had fair share of problems in my life…..but then, we all have our fair share! You know what? It’s not about comparing our problems. We all have problems: some have very serious problems, like, let’s say a physically disabled guy. I mean, with a problem like that, even the smallest of task which you do unconsciously can be a huge task. Some have emotional or mental problems. Some mental disorder which if untreated can lead to big disorientation in life. Some have no money and to worsen it, his/her loved one may be very ill and require a lot of money to survive! Some are just not happy with themselves…..some are not happy with the surroundings……some are not happy with circumstances….some are not happy with their luck! On the other hand for some life is smooth and they have everything! Health, money, family, friends etc.
Well, the point is, it’s not about how much problem you have or how serious they are. It is about how you deal with them! See, we have only one life. We didn't get anything from above. Friends…money….family….joy…happiness…sadness: we got all of them from here. We earned them. And we are going to return it all back before we go! So basically we have nothing to lose!
Once that is understood, then why do we work at all! Well, because that is life……you keep working….growing….learning….enjoying…..experiencing!
So what do problems signify! Well, I am of the view that problems are a blessing in disguise…..every problem gives us an opportunity to develop or learn something we don’t know.
And what do tears signify! I think that is the most amazing of human emotions! It is the strongest possible expression! You cry if you are parting from your dearest one or when you are just tired of your struggle and you are not getting anywhere!
Let’s take the example of working hard to make life better but you end up failing!
I cry when I fail! Because it expresses my emotions…my hard work…my desires going into vain! But it is deeper than that, tears are stronger than that…with them they carry away all the pain …all the disappointment and bring a new hope and light! They help you to get back on your feet! And basically try again! Or just be simply happy!
Now, go back to the 2nd paragraph where I said that we have nothing to lose! So keep on trying! If u fall down…..get up again and try once more. If u get tired, cry a bit. It will help u get up and go again……after all what is there to lose!
And remember, “Every dark cloud has an even brighter silver lightning.”
Every problem/crisis in life will teach u something! Be ready to learn and apply!
So it’s perfectly fine if u cry! But it is more important what that crying is leading u to ….I mean if it is making u positive and giving u strength to go on once again, then it is very healthy and good.
But if it is leading u to hopelessness and pessimism, making u dwell on your problems making them look really big, dissolving you in a spiral of sadness, then you need to work on your theories and convictions about life.
Tears are the most moving and inspirational fluids in the world!
And I will be privileged and honored if I can provide the shoulder on which they fall!
