reminder to dads like me

Post by nomeradona on Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:36 am

First topic message reminder :

i know a lot of people had read this.. but again a good reminder for us dads....

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door...

SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'

DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.

SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily.

SON: 'I just want to know.. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'
The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.. '

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and started to think:

Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

'Are you asleep, son?' He asked.

'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy..

'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.'

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled.

'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied.

'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.'

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with someone you love.

If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives..

it was just the basic of how u control your life using your brain.. unconsciously.

think Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung and their theories ...
it was like getting what you want.. if u put your heart in it, you will surely get it.. No doubts and No negative thoughts

i knew this long long ago.. they just sensationalize the concept to gain money.. my mother is psychologist, kaya i read her books ...

if u want something, picture it in your hands ...

lets say for example, u want a new phone, get a picture of it and post it wherever you can always see it.. like on ur cork board.. basta un lagi mo sya makikita.. before u know it, meron ka na nun..
it happens.. you just have to believe..

OT na noh???

Hehe... OT na nga... but well said. ganun na nga concept! sakto... pero syempre para sa mga nkararaming believers, we couple it with prayers para maachieve yun specific dream na yun and of course kung pano natin idedicate and achievements natin...
