I find we rarely truly appreciate what we have in chasing for more more more in the rat race. We can see a beggar with one leg begging on the streets and feel sorry for him, but do we really look at what we have – health, wealth, happiness, a great future to look forward to, loving family and friends, a roof over our heads, a sunroof over our heads, yummy food on the table, holidays and new experiences – and appreciate it?
Sometimes our perspective on life gets abit jaded and we get unhappy and upset over the littlest things – ‘I couldn’t manage to grab the Manolo shoes on sale I wanted so badly’ or ‘My boyfriend/girlfriend forgot my birthday’, or ‘I didnt get that promotion I so wanted’. How about people with nothing much to live on, people who are unwell, people who dont have a loving family?
After a scrumptious meal Jimmy and I had in Shangai (JW Marriot) in KL last weekend…. pictures to follow:
And we finished our chinese floral tea leisurely after the delicious dessert of Black Sesame in Lotus Ball (I shared this on one of my earlier posts) and then headed downstairs to the lobby where there was a huge Christmas tree with tags hanging on it.
Curiously, we went to have a look, and it was really a mix-feelings, saddish moment.
