~unchanged chance~

A fifty year old lady is dying of cancer.
She asks God to give her another 25 years more.
God approves.
After her successful operation, she gets face lift, lipo and tummytuck.
When she went out of the hospital, a truck hit her.
She asks God: "Lord, you said you will give me 25 more years to live?"
God replied: " Ooops! Sorry girl, I didn't notice it's you!"

Have you heard this story?

The first time I read this, I laughed. A 50-year old cancer survivor had all those self-beautification was hit by a truck? What actually does she look like for that driver to hit her? Maybe her face was tucked and her tummy was lifted? I wonder...
Kidding aside, so what's the point of the story? (Do i sound like a story-teller now?)

In our hopeless times, we ask God for miracles to happen. Longer years, beautiful life, greater jobs and even perfect lovers(?). And when God grants us our wishes, we get blinded of that chance we are taking. We get dissatisfied, not contented of what He gave us. We crave for more fun, more pleasures. In the end, we realize, we just had wasted the best of what we have. We lost them and regret again.
Sometimes we missed to stay as who we are. We became a different person. Great if we changed for the better, but sad if we become worse. Wish and strive to become a beautiful human from the inside. Mold your consciousness to the sweet wonderful life.

The physical beauty may perish but what makes you a YOU will stay until you're six feet under.

Its a very good story. Infact most of the time stories are good. But can we remain what we really are!!!!!! When we go to job interviews people ask us to look good and smart. Speak what interviewer wants to listen not what you want to say. And its not only in interviews its same everywhere. So Beanizer its really really difficult to stay what you are in todays world.

@ bunty:
I think I have put a line there.."good if we change for the better". I get your point, in today's world we can surely be influenced and "change". Well, when you go to an interview, you must fully know what the interviewer's standards or the qualifications maybe, and if you think you're not suited for that qualification, would you still push yourself to get that position? (Maybe if you badly needed that job and it you prefer to impress that man showing a different person you may be not) Change is inevitable, it is a fact. Yet, we are created uniquely from the other and that makes us WHO we really are. The story tells that if you are given that chance, you should usse it for a good purpose and never waste it. Every one is given a chance, but how you value that chance relies on you. Our character can be influenced but we play the major role of molding ourselves-it is our CHOICE to become either a better/worse person. In the end, you must find yourself and never forget who you ONCE become:)
thanks so much for sharing and droppin here. Really appreciated:)
