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.

#1

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.

#2

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.

#3

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.
