Bank Pass Book – Life is about correcting mistakes.

Hey friends.....while searching some important information I found a good story.... I thought to share with you people... 

Riya married Hitesh one day. At the end of the wedding party, Riya's mother gave her a newly opened bank saving passbook. With Rs.1000/- deposit amount. 

Mother: 'Riya, take this passbook. Keep it as a record of your marriage life. When there's something happy & memorable happened in your new life, put some money in. Write down what it's about next to the line. 

The more memorable the event is, the more money you can put in. I've done the first one for you today. Do the others with Hitesh. When you look back after years, you can know how much happiness you've had.' 

Riya shared this with Hitesh when getting home. They both thought it was a great idea & were anxious to know when the second deposit can be made. 

This was what they did after certain time:

- 7 Feb: Rs.100, first birthday celebration for Hitesh after marriage
- 1 Mar: Rs.300, salary raise for Riya
- 20 Mar: Rs.200, vacation trip to Bali
- 15 Apr: Rs.2000, Riya got pregnant
- 1 Jun: Rs.1000, Hitesh got promoted
.... and so on...

However, after years, they started fighting & arguing for trivial things. They didn't talk much. They regretted that they had married the nastiest people in the world.... no more love...Kind of typical nowadays, huh? 

One day Riya talked to her Mother:

'Mom, we can't stand it anymore. We agree to divorce. I can't imagine how I decided to marry this guy!!!'

Mother: 'Sure, girl, that's no big deal. Just do whatever you want if you really can't stand it. But before that, do one thing first. Remember the saving passbook I gave you on your wedding day? Take out all money & spend it first. You shouldn't keep any record of such a poor marriage.' 

Riya thought it was true. So she went to the bank, waiting at the queue & planning to cancel the account.
While she was waiting, she took a look at the passbook record. She looked, & looked, & looked. Then the memory of all the previous joy & happiness just came up her mind. Her eyes were then filled with tears. She left & went home. 

When she was home, she handed the passbook to Hitesh, asked him to spend the money before getting divorce. The next day, Hitesh gave the passbook back to Riya. She found a new deposit of Rs.5000. And a line next to the record: 'this is the day I notice how much I've loved you thru out all these years. How much happiness you've brought me.' 

They hugged and cried, putting the passbook back to the safe.
I don't know how much they saved .I believe the money did not matter any more after they had gone thru all the good years in their life. "When you fall, in any way, don't see the place where you fell, Instead see the place from where you slipped.

Life is about correcting mistakes."

♥ My daily note to myself

Some time ago I decided that I want and I need a change in my life, that I need something more from life for my own good. Well in the moment I decided I need a transition I was making a plan how to do it. Everything is good while it's written on a paper, sometimes life isn't as sunny as we wish it could be. 

So I was looking for this extra thing that could make me smile when I feel low from time to time or when it's all fine and than you get a call or you have a meeting that change your mood from positive to negative. 

I decided that I am responsible for my life and I am responsible for my mood. I wanted to be happy, cheerful, powerful and positive all the time. The best thing to keep me "all smiles" is when someone is kind to me and speaks to me in a positive way. I wanted a daily reminder to tell me all those amazing things. 

On my Iphone I wrote a note to myself. It shows up each day at noon. 

"You are beautiful and amazing. You deserve love, joy and happiness! 
You are making your dreams come true girl. Work harder. 
Keep your mind clear. Love you! Your best friend Deva"

You can't even imagine how many times it shifted my emotions from negative to positive. I encourage you to try it!  All the best Lovers!
