You enumerate all your responsibilities and conclude that self-growth belongs in the bottom pile. The irony is that self-growth is pivotal to the improvement of your life and the more effort you put […]

Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically. “Perhaps,” the farmer replied.

One quiet and peaceful morning, it was snowing. The fluffy snowflakes slowly circled in a captivating dance, slowly falling to earth. Two little snowflakes flying close to each other struck up a conversation and to avoid drifting away from each other, they held each other’s hands.
