Birdie's Dreams Come True!!

Do you expect someone to take care of you when you find it difficult on your own? Do you know who that person will be? There are many who promise to stay around, hold your hand, lead you through when you cannot find your way. But do you really think they will do it when the time arrives? I know that if there is anyone whom I can always call on such occasions, who would come around and do it, it would only be my dad.. No wonder I always list out people who are similar to him in their personalities - the ones who value their word, the ones who would give in their possible best, the ones who never stop doing things, as they know, the way to live is to 'do, or die'.
After 35 yrs of experience with people, I've finally arrived at these conclusions. There are only 2 types of people on earth. The ones who would do things, others who won't. Among type 1, there are a few very special ones who could take care of their stuff and also take care of a few others (some on need base, others out of habit). I want to be the one who can take care of myself as well as a few needy (kids at this point, parents when they are older, others who have to be under my care.. as life decides) I generally type cast people almost instantly into the two main categories, those who would do, those who wouldn't do - irrespective of their age and capacity! My respect goes to the doers, and that's my only yard-stick of measuring a person. This trait is easily distinguishable in children, adults and elderly. I wish my kids imbibe this quality.
In an attempt to avoid work, people huff, puff, vent out, fall sick and do everything possible, other than work. If these wasted energies are put into productive channels successfully bound by habit, whether one achieves success or not doesnt matter. Because success is not something that is to be assessed at the end of a day, it probably takes a life-time. But the effort, most surely is counted at the end of each passing day, right when you lie down to sleep! I realize the reason for most human miseries is the attempt to avoid work. It could be either one person who doesn't do what it takes, or it could be someone who tries to get work done through someone else! I have mostly been the hard working type, and realized in the year 2005, that it is better to die of work, than to die of no work! This is what kept ringing in my ears all these years - "Let me do it! Let me not shy away!". That left me with no time to complain.
