I started my jewelry business a year ago and I am thankful to God for how far I’ve come!
A few days ago I noticed my younger sister making bracelets out of rubber bands. I complimented her impressive creations and went ahead to suggest the inclusion of charms which would make her bracelets even more unique. She smiled and set to work.
She came back from school the following day and was excited. Everyone loved her bands and inquired where to order them.
My sister kept expressing her appreciation for my suggestion, and I was proud. I said to her that it was nothing and that i was just a genius like that…LOL!
Next I took the bracelets to my brother. He loved them! He teased me saying that I’d better watch out, my sister was going to surpass me in the jewellery game. We all laughed and cheered and went to bed.
I woke up the next morning with a spiteful spirit. A thought in my head just kept saying what if she does passes you by. The thought kept running through my head ‘what if she does pass me by?’. Then, I laughed at myself, and said wow…….. Well this says a lot.
Family is said to be the strongest hold an individual needs to have. The way a child turns out depends on the role of his/her family. It is a fact whether he/she has it or not. But in the world today, family is something we try to avoid as much as possible.
Most families have been ruined by this jealous act. Siblings not being able to help one another because of jealousy or deceit. We all have weak moods, times when we’re vulnerable to do things we wouldn’t do in our right state of mind. I know of someone who literally destroyed his brother’s opportunity to succeed, but when he was in a similar position he failed as well because if his brother had succeeded he would have been able to help him.
Life is a circle. What goes around definitely comes back around. Whatever you sow you will definitely reap. Our acts today, determine your opportunities and standing tomorrow. Don’t destroy people for no reason at all. Evil can never be justified. Don’t use your position today to destroy the chances of others. Act in love, even if others don’t treat you in a pleasant way.
My sister following in my footsteps is a source of a great joy and pride. Life is full of mishaps and I’m happy I can guide her towards the right direction.
“If you want to do really important things in life and big things in life, you can’t do anything by yourself. And your best teams are your friends and your siblings.”
― Deepak Chopra
So don’t be spiteful or jealous of family. Help them, and if you don’t want to help, you are better off letting them be.
