The Meaning of Life - a slightly different version...

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the desk in front of him. When the final student was seated he picked up a large and empty glass bottle and proceeded to fill it with rocks...about 2" in diameter. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

He then picked up a box of pebbles and added them to the jar, shaking it lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks. "Is the jar filled now?"
Yes, the students said.

But then he picked up a bag of sand and poured it into the bottle.
The sand filled in everything else.
Once more he asked if it was full and after some thinking they said that it was.

The professor then took 2 cans of beer from a bag at the side of the desk and opening them both, poured their entire contents into the jar. The students roared at this demonstration.
After the laughter subsided the professor spoke: "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the important things in your life; your family, your partner, your health, your children...things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter...like your job, your house, your car.
The sand is everything else. The small stuff
If you put the sand into the jar first there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical check-ups. Take your partner out dancing. There will always be time to go to work, clean the house, rewire the lamp.
Take care of the rocks first...the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand."

After the impact of what he had said settled one of the students raised her hand and inquired what the beer represented.
"I'm glad you asked. It just goes to prove that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of beers."

Repost: Guy's point of view

This is very cute!And even written by a guy!
You might agree with it, but when it actually happens 99% of girls don't realize it until its too late and that guy who did it is so frustrated that he has moved on to someone who will take notice.
From a guys point of view:
  • We don't care if you talk to other guys. 
  • We don't care if you're friends with other guys. But when you're sitting next to us, and some random guy walks into the room and you jump up and tackle him without even introducing us, yeah, it pisses us off. It doesn't help if you sit there and talk to him for ten minutes without even acknowledging the fact that we're still there. 
  • We don't care if a guy calls you, but at 2 in the morning we do get a little concerned. Nothing is that important at 2 a.m. that it can't wait till he morning.
  • Also, when we tell you you're pretty/beautiful/gorgeous/cute/ stunning, we freaking mean it.
  • Don't tell us we're wrong.We'll stop trying to convince you.
  • The sexiest thing about a girl is confidence.
  • Yeah, you can quote me.
  • Don't be mad when we hold the door open. 
  • Take Advantage of the mood I'm in. 
  • LET US PAY FOR YOU! DON'T 'FEEL BAD' We enjoy doing it. It's expected. Smile and say 'thank you.' 
  • Kiss us when no one's watching.
  • If you kiss us when you know somebody's looking, we'll be more impressed. 
  • You don't have to get dressed up for us. 
  • If we're going out with you in the first place, you don't have to feel the need to wear the shortest skirt you have or put on every kind of makeup you own. We like you for WHO you are and not WHAT you are. Honestly, i think a girl looks more beautiful when she's just in her pj's. Or my t-shirt and boxers, not all dolled up. 
  • Don't take everything we say seriously. Sarcasm is a beautiful thing.  See the beauty in it. 
  • Don't get angry easily. 
  • Stop using magazines/media as your bible. 
  • Don't talk about how hott Morris Chesnutt, Brad Pitt, or Jesse McCartney is in front of us. It's boring, and we don't care.You have girlfriends for that. 
  • Whatever happened to the word 'handsome'/'beautiful'. I'd be utterly stunned by a girl who greeted me with 'Hey handsome!' instead of 'Hey baby/ stud/ cutie/ sexy' or whatever else you can think of. On the other hand im not sayin i wouldn't like it ether. 
  • Girls: I cannot stress this enough: IF YOU AREN'T BEING TREATED RIGHT BY A GUY, DON'T WAIT FOR HIM TO CHANGE DITCH HIS SORRY DISGRACE-TO-THE-MALE-POPULATION ASS AND FIND SOMEONE WHO WILL TREAT YOU WITH UTTER RESPECT. Someone who will honor your morals. Someone who will make you smile when you're at your lowest. Someone who will care for you even when you make mistakes. Someone who will love you, no matter how bad you make them feel. Someone who will stop what they're doing just to look you in the eyes....and say 'I love you' ..........AND ACTUALLY MEAN IT!
 ***Give the nice guys a chance***

    Every person has two sides to them. One they let the world see & one they keep to themselves.
