It’s easy to forget about things to be grateful. I used to go on a morning walk, like an old man, and go through a list that I’m grateful about in my life. Life goes on and I forgot all about it.
Last week, I met with my primary school teacher, Mr Au. Over the years, he had a couple of bad accidents. He is now in the midst of recovering from a surgery. He mentioned that every time that he moves his arms – pins and needles will be sent down his entire arm.
I asked him: “How do you feel now?”. He answered: “Much better”.
I replied: “Well, that’s great!”. He responded: “but I still feeling a little pain and I have to stretch every now and then”.
I noticed how he kept focusing on the pain. Why isn’t he happy with his progress? Wouldn’t he be healed with time?
It got me thinking that it is easy to forget about the good things that happened. My health, my relationship, having no debt, air to breath and so much more.
