The Un-Explainable Thoughts of Mine
Waking up early in the morning, hearing the sounds of the rooster waking up the neighborhood, you’ll get to hear and see school buses came in and go to fetch students in the neighborhood, groups of people waiting for their transport at the road side, some who had to leave early to their work places started to warm up their car engines and me on the other hand enjoying every single moment of my observation from my house window.
It makes me wonder how great life is; be it to individual or be it to a family.
I used to rent houses back then and I used to envy those who had their own house; simply because they can do whatever they want to the house without seeking the landlord permission. Now, I had a home and I can do whatever pleases me. Little that I knew by owning a home is not as easy as what I’ve envied before. It is actually more than that.
I used to envy those who owned their own car. Back then I depend on the public transport and sometimes hopped in friend’s car to work. Now, I had my own car and I can go wherever I want to. Little that I knew by owning a car is not as easy as what I’ve envied before. It is actually more than that.
I used to envy those who had bigger pay than me; simply because they can have more stuffs than me. Back then with RM500 salary per month, I barely survived and always ask for extra cash from my parent. Now, though my pay had increased and barely enough to cover monthly expenses still I survived and no longer depend on my parent for extra cash. Little that I knew by having bigger pay is not as easy as what I’ve envied before. It is actually more than that.
It makes me wonder how life has changed for me.
I begin to appreciate what I have. What more can I ask? I have everything that I wanted in life.
It makes me feel lucky in a way as I was given the opportunity to feel all of this and dwell with it though at times I do feel want to give it up but I didn’t.
It makes me strong every day.
It makes me who I am today.
And I want to stay that way…physically and mentally strong.
What about you??
