UP/DOWN

November 24, 2013

I've always been taught to be thankful of what I have in life. I know that as a human, we will never be satisfied with what we have, we will always want more and more and more. We will always keep searching for something better. However, this is just a little reminder for myself that I have to be thankful in life, for everything that I have. Life is not about getting new car or buying new designer bags and shoes.

That doesn't mean that I don't want to move up to get a better living, I work hard to get what I want, but sometimes we need to pause a moment and be thankful. There are lots and lots of people who have perfect life and I used to envied them when I was younger, why can't I be like them? But maybe my goal in life is not about being 'perfect'. My goal is about to do something different, because my path is different than theirs.

At the moment, I still have my loving family, my parents who always stick one and another, two genius little sisters with their own talents, when some people wanting to have a family. I get enough food every single day, when some people don't even get clean water to drink. My parents can afford me to go to college and I'm about to graduate next year, when some people have to work really hard to pay for the tuition. I sleep safely every single night, when some people have insomnia. These are simple things that sometimes I don't appreciate in life.

When you think that your life is miserable, just think that there are thousands of people are desperately want to live their life like yours. My Dad always say, 'Do not look up too much the sun light's will blind your eyes, but look down so your feet won't be stumbled.' Be humble, always.
