    Teacher Birds
    We have so much to learn from birds. They are stress free unlike human beings. We are in stress, in tension for tomorrow that’s why we are always busy in earning and saving for tomorrow and while saving for the future and having enough for present still we are lacking peace of mind. Birds don’t have stocks of food for tomorrow but they still use to sing songs when they leave their nests in the morning even they don’t know from where they will get their food and will they get or not? In the evening they return to their nests while singing songs, they feed their children and sleep without wasting energy and time on thinking about an uncertain future which we cannot predict. Amazingly they have peace of mind which we also wish to have but we don’t know the ‘WAY’ of achieving it.

    How many people truly can you rely on?if you have someone who can come your place and wake you up in the very early morning since your safety for your work. Then you can say you have someone that you really can rely on.It is important where you can find your friend and how would you treat your friend.
