Story of the bird.

I am sharing an interesting story which I received.

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.The dung was actually thawing him out!

He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

What lessons can we learn from the story:?
(1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
(2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
(3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

A reminder of these simple lessons in life is useful for we are sometimes narrow in our perception of happenings around us. Often when things do not turn out the way we expect, we are very quick to point fingers instead of looking within ourselves to analyse the situation. Maybe recognizing that certain things are within our control can help us accept reality and take positive action to resolve the problem. Thus having a positive mental attitude is the key to good interpersonal communication and being happy.
