A simple yet powerful story with a wonderful perspective!
One day, a man took his affluent family on a trip to show how poor people live.
They spent a number of days and nights on the farm; what would certainly be thought about an extremely inadequate household.
On their return from their journey, the dad asked his kid, “Just how was the trip?”
“It was wonderful, Dad.”
“Did you see exactly how bad people live?” the father asked.
“Oh yes,” said the kid.
“So, tell me, exactly what did you learn from the journey?” asked daddy.
The son addressed:
“I saw that we have 1 dog and also they had 4.
We have a pool that reaches to the center of our yard and also they have a creek that has no end.
We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the celebrities at night.
Our terrace reaches to the front yard and they have the entire horizon.
We have a tiny tract to survive as well as they have areas that exceed our view.
We have slaves that offer us, but they offer others.
We purchase our food, but they produce it.
We have wall surfaces around our residential or commercial property to protect us; they have pals to secure them.”
The young boy’s dad was without words.
His kid included, “Thanks Daddy for showing me how poor we are.”
Isn’t perspective a remarkable thing?
Good things would certainly happen if all of us appreciate others and get appreciated for every little thing we have, instead of bothering with just what we don’t have.
Hope you enjoyed the story and embed its essence in your life to make it more beautiful and meaningful.
