Five People You Meet in Heaven

I was unable to post articles for half- a- month already due to time restriction (I prefered to sleep than to encode). But I wouldn't say that things that occured are not that worth-while, it's actually the exact opposite.
I believe that everything and every individual that comes our way are constituents of our life's journey. They are the pieces are hone and bind us into who we are and who we are going to be. They make our life's jigsaw puzzle complete. They are part, both directly and indirectly, of how we live our lives.

Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven depicts how one's life is affected by the way other people [around us] we encounter and vice versa. The story reminds us to be sensitive enough in dealing with our neighbors. Reading between the lines, I have realized that getting-to-know the people we interact with is not simply a courteous act, it is living a good life. The things we chose to do and not to do impinge on other people's lives too, not only ours.
We should bear in mind: the people we meet don't just come and go; they leave a mark that remains in the blueprint of our lives.

This is one of my favorite books. I like the concept of how we are all connected. How "there are many stories, but the stories are all one." It's a concept I believe in. Be kind to your neighbor for you never know how your act, no matter how little or big it is, can affect him, can affect you.
