Day 43: 3 Profound Lessons
Today was a great day. I will tell you why. We were celebrating mum’s birthday. Yes, at her age…it is a very special way of reminding her how important she is. A time to celebrate all her efforts. The celebration was a package.
As I was reminiscing afterwards the significance of the celebration, deep down in me, I knew the cake is only a symbolic, a symbol of admiration, love and more importantly a symbol of desire; desire to see her continue thriving.
Let me share 3 profound insights from today’s experience.
Always express gratitude for what you already have. If you cannot be happy with what you have today, you will not be happy with what you have tomorrow.
Redefine negative events into opportunities and lessons. An event is terrible for you only if you decide that it is. Look at it as a lesson or an opportunity to change your life, in order to give it an empowering meaning.
Surround yourself with positive vibes, yes – positive people, positive content. If you only read gossip news and hang out with pessimistic complainants, you will experience a difficult time showing optimism.
All this flooded my mind as I admired how how she can be. Happy Birthday again mum, and to everyone who was celebrating his/her birthdays today.
