On This Day.......

It has been an interesting morning, to say the least.  As I was working away supporting the Daily Outsider, I ran across this I wanted to note that goes to the heart of being human:

We are all a people in need.
We are not perfect. 
We are not machines.
We make mistakes.
We need grace. 
We need compassion.
We need help at times.
We need other people.
And that’s okay.”
~ Jamie Tworkowski

I also saw this on one of the blogs I personally follow and the insights are amazing.  I made it a point of thanking Saad for sharing this as I note this advise from his grandfather here:

Advice from my grandfather for me and my siblings, circa 2005. It’s been over ten years since he handed this to me after I taught him how to type on a computer, and I hope I live to pass it down to my children and grandchildren. Nothing has changed and yet everything is different.

For My Grandchildren (July 2005)
Believe in God almighty and always trust in God almighty.
Do not forget your origins.
Do not waste your time.
Do not put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today.
Do not postpone your work for tomorrow as tomorrow never comes: A man who is destined for success makes every minute useful of his life.
Avoid laziness and always be a careful person.
Concentrate on your studies.
For success, following elements are absolutely necessary:
  • Seriousness and concentration
  • Learning and practicing
  • Revisions
  • Concerted efforts
  • Scan everything: what, why and how?
Make your self strong:
  • Physically
  • Mentally
  • Financially
Change/Make your fortune yourself by working hard
You all brothers and sisters give respect to each other and extend help to each other at every moment.
Give unlimited respect to your parents and be kind and sympathetic with them.
Remember, as you sue, so shall you reap.
Give due respect to every human being and help them.
Be patient. Patience makes everything possible.
Take care of your health. Do not forget to exercise and walk.
Attend the library daily for hours and also borrow books for reading at home.
Do not take rest until your good is better and better is the best.

Muhammad Iqbal Malik
