    [FONT=&quot] Just Never Regret A Day In Your Life... [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT] [FONT=&quot] [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]One day I decided to quit...
    I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality...
    I wanted to quit my life.
    I went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
    "God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?"

    His answer surprised me...
    "Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" [/FONT][FONT=&quot][/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]"Yes", I replied.

    "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds,
    I took very good care of them.
    I gave them light. I gave them water.

    The fern quickly grew from the earth.
    Its brilliant green covered the floor.

    Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.
    But I did not quit on the bamboo.

    In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.

    And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
    But I did not quit on the bamboo." He said.

    "In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed.

    But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again,
    there was nothing from the bamboo seed.
    "I would not quit." He said.
    "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.

    Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant...
    But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.

    It had spent the five years growing roots.
    Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.

    I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots?"

    "I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you."

    "Don't compare yourself to others." He said.

    "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern.

    Yet, they both make the forest beautiful."

    "Your time will come", God said to me. "You will rise high!"

    "How high should I rise?" I asked.

    "How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return.
    "As high as it can?" I questioned.
    "Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can."

    I left the forest and brought back this story.

    Hey Ragini

    Very Insipiring piece of writing, we often forget these things in life when faced by problems... these fwds remind us basic things of our life... so i wud say these forwards are actually Snippets of life that we come across day to day and teach us a thing or two

    wat say ?

    Thank you all.

    Abha, very well said.......completely agree with you. In spite of knowing, we often forget these basic things when faced with problems in life. No doubt that they are Snippets taken out of our everyday lives.

    Cheers!
    Ragini.
