*Knocks* Anybody home?



Hey guys!

How is it going? I have been hiding in my room away from all socializing, because…YUP! You guessed it! It’s E X A M  Timeeeeee! I am drowning in more and more revision day by day, and have not had a chance to take some time off and just “Chillax”, like my friend says. However, I decided to screw work today, and come down here to see how all you lovely people were doing! Open-mouthed smile.

I don’t have much to blog about. Actually I don’t have anything to blog about HA! I’m saving my rants and stories for after exams. Today I just want to share a story with you that I found on Facebook. It actually left me pondering for a while, and I was a bit shocked as well to find such a BEAUTIFUL story on Facebook!! Surprised smile. The most time consuming/wasting sites ever created. [Yet she has an account on it. Eye rolling smile]

The story does not need to be explained or anything. It pretty much says it all, so I’ll get it pasted here right away so you can have a read. Although, I will say that it is directed mostly towards the female readers, but go ahead boys and take a read. It can’t hurt Winking smile

The Flower and the Pearl

One day, a brilliantly beautiful and fragrant flower with attractive colors met a pearl that lives far in the bottom of the sea and has none of these characteristics. Both got acquainted with each other.

The flower said: “Our family is large; roses and daisies are members of the family. And there are many other species that are various and countless; each has a distinctive scent, appearance etc.”

Suddenly, a tinge of distress appeared on the flower. “Nothing accounts for sorrow in your talk; so why are you depressed?” The pearl asked.

“Human beings deal with us carelessly; they slight us. They don’t grow us for our sake but to get pleasure from our fragrance and beautiful appearance. They throw us on the street or in the garbage can after we are dispossessed of the most valuable properties; brilliance and fragrance.”

The flower sighed. And then the flower said to the pearl: “Speak to me about your life! How do you live? How do you feel it? You are buried in the bottom of the sea.”

The pearl answered: “Although I have none of your distinctive colors and sweet scents, humans think I am precious. They do the impossible to procure me. They go on long journeys, dive deep in the seas searching for me. You might be astounded to know that the further I lay, the more beautiful and brilliant I become.

That’s what upraises my value in their thought. I live in a thick shell isolated in the dark seas. However, I’m happy and proud to be in a safe zone far from wanton and mischievous hands and still the humans consider me highly valuable.”

Do you know what the flower and the pearl symbolize?

Think, Think, Think…

You will find that: The flower is the unveiled woman (who shows her charms) and the pearl is the veiled woman (who conceals her beauties).
