I found it an interesting read for everyone, because of some nuggets it contains. DR. BEN CARSON(RETIRED WORLD-RENOWNED NEUROSURGEON) WROTE THIS BEAUTIFUL PIECE. Read and be blessed.

Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life, while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life.

A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of flying. But, a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams of returning home. That’s life!! Enjoy yours. If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets. But only poor kids do that.

If power ensures security, then officials should walk unguarded. But those who live simply, sleep soundly

If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages. But those who live simply, walk humbly, and love genuinely! All goodwill comes back to you!!!

A man asks, “Where was God when Myles Munroe, his wife, and his associates were killed in a crash? He answers, “The same place I sat when John the Baptist my servant was beheaded. When Stephen my servant was stoned to death.

When Paul my servant was murdered in Rome. The same place I sat when my only Son was brutally crucified, wounded, bruised, and killed. I have not moved from my position.”I am the same. It is not the means of exit from the earth that matters but the destination. Live simply. It’s all about God.



  1. What a beautiful and inspirational piece written by Dr. Ben Carson. I am sure that as a world renowned neurosurgeon, he would have treated many patients that would have loved to have swopped places with someone else. But it is as the saying goes, the grass is not always greener on the other side. But it is only when you get to the other side, that you realise that what you had, was the best for you. 

    So what is good for your neighbor, or best friend, is not necessarily best for you. Important is to make the most of what we do have, and thank God for giving us the life that we can live to our best. 

    1. LineCowley, your invaluable reaction to this post is greatly appreciated.

      Indeed, we will remain grateful to God for giving us the life we have.
