Slow Dance - A poem written by a teenager with cancer.

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. 
She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite the poem. Please pass it on.  This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital. It was sent by a medical doctor.
Slow Dance
Have you ever watched kids On a merry-go-round? Or listened to the rain Slapping on the ground?  Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight? Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last. 
Do you run through each day On the fly?  When you ask How are you? Do you hear the reply?  When the day is done Do you lie in your bed With the next hundred chores Running through your head? 
You'd better slow down. Don't dance so fast. Time is short. The music won't last.
Ever told your child, We'll do it tomorrow? And in your haste, Not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch, Let a good friendship die Cause you never had time To call and say,"Hi"

Where are you living now?

If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.”

Strong mind can turn any situation into an opportunity

When mind is Weak, situation is Problem.
When mind is balanced, situation is Challenge.
But, when mind is Strong, situation becomes Opportunity.


The Platinum Rule: Treat others the way they want to be treated

The Platinum Rule: "Treat others the way they want to be treated."

We all know the Golden Rule: "Treat others the way you want to be treated."

The Golden Rule implies the basic assumption that other people would like to be treated the way that you would like to be treated.

The alternative to the Golden Rule is the Platinum Rule:
"Treat others the way they want to be treated. Find out what respect means to others."

The Platinum Rule accommodates the feelings of others.  You start finding out what respect means to others instead of just knowing what respect means to you.

The focus of relationships shifts from "this is what I want, so I'll give everyone the same thing" to "let me first understand what they want and then I'll give it to them."



A moment of misunderstanding

A single moment of misunderstanding is so poisonous, that u forget, hundreds of lovable moments spent together, in a minute.
