Gratitude, Perspective then Hope
It is coming to 8th month since Malaysia first started the Movement Control Order (MCO), since then we have various levels of movement control and now into our 3rd wave of infections. All of us are somehow impacted by the pandemic response in many different ways. People are losing jobs, businesses related to travel is crushed, even the stable oil and gas industry is facing challenges with the price crude oil.
I would like to share this quote and the video that I was recently introduced to. Hopefully we can continue to take one step at the time to move forward with life despite the challenges.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will riseVictor Hugo, Les Misérables
The summary I would have for her message, to get up from the mental hole that we are in, start with gratitude. Find something to be thankful for, having a family, roof over your head.. or in her case.. just being alive. The sense of gratitude will give you the perspective to look at the positives which creates hope and effort
In the world we live in, there’s always challenges and problems it is part of life. Real suffering does not come from the challenge, it comes form the things we tell our selves on what is going to happen. We tell ourselves on the future that is scary.
When life hits back at you or when life test you, take stock on what life has given you. there are always things to be grateful for.
