Message of A Dying Heart About Living

Its nothing incredulous to shake hands with many good n bad moments in our rituals, those keep happening in life, as it is life. But the power of thinking about the good that excited us so far, when we deeply indulge in problems shows the difference amongst people’s life style and the passion of accepting problems. As some one said…
Its not how things are
Its up to us how we look at them
…And how we look up to them is all up to us.

In one of the forwarded mails I read a small story, which is in the forthcoming lines. In the very next moment after reading it, the above lines came in my mind and I put them in words.
Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS, which he got due to, infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983. From all over the world, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does God have to select you for such a bad disease?"
To this Arthur Ashe replied:
"50 million children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the grand slam, and 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals.
When I was holding a cup I never asked God 'Why me?’
And today in pain I should not be asking God 'Why me?' "
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrow keeps you Human,
Failure keeps you Humble
Success keeps you Glowing,
But only Faith & Attitude keeps you Going...

i read this story some time early yaar.... something which makes every one who has read to think about it....we never ask anyone about why they chose them if we are happy for it but if it has gone wrong in any way then the only question that we put on is..... "WHY ME AND NOT ANYOTHER??"

this is what is so called "ATTITUDE" and i hope we will not develop it in the future as well.
