Just How Lucky We Are…
The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.
Whenever I feel down I just think of this old Chinese proverb. All the time we say its a miracle to do this and that, but we fail to keep in mind the simplest yet most outstanding miracle have occurred in each and every one of us. The miracle of life.
I’ve been feeling really lousy the past few days and whenever I’m like this I usually get drawn to a more introspective mood. A good thing especially since we just started the year. 2010 was full of challenges for me yet, I’m here. And I’d like to think the new me in 2011 has become a lot more wiser, albeit older. There are times when things are going really tough that I almost wanna swear on things, but now I keep thinking if not for those difficult times I would never have appreciated the good times.
Life is a balance of good and the bad. I don’t think I would want to have a life that is all ‘good’. If I had that, would I ever even know if I’m having a good thing not having experienced anything bad?
Here’s my mantra for this new year. We are lucky. We are blessed. I’m lucky with my lot in life. If there are things lacking and wanting, then it’ll just come as long as I work diligently for it.
Despite hardships, I’m thankful I was given the privilege to be here. To walk on earth. To have life. To be alive.
