Taking things with Gratitude


I were given a challenge to complete in one minute.

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Cleared!

Another challenge & I were fighting with time……..10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Cleared again! Phew!

A 3rd one – but this time, I have to compete with “A”……..10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Both of us have completed it, but I weren’t the declared winner.

Me: Teacher, I have completed mine too, I have given my best!

Teacher: You think you have put in a lot of effort, but “A” has put in even more, thus he is the winner. I will give you one more chance ….”

I remembered I were desperately fighting for time ……. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4…………. & suddenly in my “dream”, there was a complete blackout ……..


The next moment – when I opened my eyes, I started tearing uncontrollably in the operating recovery area. That is when I know – I have passed the challenge!

You may called it a “dream”, but I clearly believe that it wasn’t.

The message I have gotten and will never forget!

*Do not take things for granted.*

Life is short, I have learnt to take things with gratitude, with a smile & WITH LOTS OF LOVE!
