Paul Walker’s Final Words
Rest in peace♥
the best of art, design & fashion:
first of all how dare you
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’
The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..
‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.
‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.
If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.
Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.
Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.
One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.
This just changed me
First off I must say it is late. And my mind has decided to find the meaning for life. In an odd way at that. Simply put my mind has been doing some extraordinary things at this point. I feel quiet amazing and I must share this with you. Starting with the saying when life gives you lemons what do you do? Well you make lemonade of course! Well yes but here is a new way to think of that. When life gives you lemons yes make lemonade but dont just do that. Lemons have seeds yes? So plant those seeds and eventually in due time you will have a lemon tree an unlimited supply of lemons as long as you have given that wonderful tree plenty of love and care it will supply you with an unlimited amount of lemons. That is such a spectacular thought isn’t it? You will always have this thing that life gave you because you took care of it! The lemon tree would produce more lemons which you can grow more trees and more and even more! And all you ever needed was simply one single lemon. But maybe you’re wondering “well what does that mean?” well I want you to think about it and I dont just mean ponder I mean for you to have a long profound thought about it and here’s what I want you to do while you do so. Simply take the word lemon and replace it with one very simple word and that word is happiness.
best. submission. ever.
