Positive Points

After posting so many negatives regarding the current political situation in the USA, I feel that it's about time something lighter and positive is desirable. Here's a go toward that end.

A pencil maker gave the pencil five important lessons just before putting it in the box.

First: Everything you do will always leave a mark.

Second: You can correct many of the mistakes you make, but never all.

Third: What is important is what's inside of you.

Fourth: In life, you will undergo painful sharpening, which will only make you better.

Fifth: To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the hand that holds you.

We all need to be constantly sharpened. This brief parable may encourage you to know that you are a special person with unique talents and abilities. Only you can fulfill the purpose which you were born to accomplish.  Never allow yourself to get discouraged and think that your life is insignificant and cannot be changed. 

Like the pencil, always remember that the most important part of who you are is what's inside.
