One Remarkable Lesson for a Better Life

One Remarkable Lesson for a Better Life

“There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”

We tend to think that the happiest people are the ones who have it all – money, looks, health, love, friends, success, shiny cars, big beautiful houses  – but is that really true? I have met so many “poor” and “rich” people while traveling around the world.  I can tell you that often the people who had less seemed more at peace and more happy than the people who had it “all”…

Today I want to share with you a really beautiful story that comes with a remarkable life lesson. Enjoy :)

World of Smiles

About ten years ago when I was an undergraduate student in college, I was working as an intern at my University’s Museum of Natural History. One day, while working at the cash register in the gift shop, an elderly couple come in with a little girl in a wheelchair. As I looked closer at this girl, I saw that she was kind of perched on her chair. And then I realized she had no arms or legs, just a head, neck and torso. She was wearing a little white dress with red polka dots.

As the couple wheeled her up to the counter, I was looking down at the register. I turned my head toward the girl and gave her a wink. As I took the money from her grandparents, I looked back at the girl, who was giving me the cutest, largest smile I had ever seen. All of a sudden, her handicap was gone and all I saw was a beautiful little girl, whose smile just melted me and almost instantly gave me a completely new sense of what life is all about.

She captured me – a poor, unhappy college student  – and brought me into her world; a world of smiles, love and warmth. That was ten years ago. I’m a successful business person now and whenever I start to feel down and think about the troubles of the world, I remember that little girl and the remarkable lesson about life that she taught me. ~Author Unknown
