give.

“ give, while u can”

Dad always says that to me. He is not even a millionaire. He just another man on the street, who goes to work 5 days a week, 8 hrs a day ,ever since he received his degree up till the time his employer disown him. he also need to pay for taxes, bank loan and  bills. Though his net income is 5 figures, he still  (sometimes) struggles financially.

However, dad pictures money differently. He pictures money like the rich, but too bad he is not rich. Hahahahha..sorry dad, no  bad intention tho >< . Maybe he is not meant to be rich in money, but rich in good deeds who knows :D

 by saying picturing money like the rich, dad always give.  If u read Robert Kiyosaki’s book, “Rich dad, Poor dad”, ready to give is one characteristic of rich people. They don’t wait till they have extra to give. My Dad has this characteristic. He gives though he didn’t have enough. Whenever he sees the poor selling stuffs, he will buy it straight away, though  he well aware the stuff is awfully bad. When he saw an old man digging the garbage, he will go to them. There was a time when he left with only a few bucks in his pockets, but he saw someone in need, he gave all he had and going home penniless. When he knew someone ( who is not financially crook) forsake their health because of the medical fee is too high, he pissed off. He doesn’t like that type people who treats money like the king. He is not stingy and he teaches me not to be one.  He always reminds me, don’t devote yourself to money. Don’t get scared of money. Money is the root of evil, if only if you let it control you..but money is a powerful tool, if you are the one whom controlling.

Back in the time when I was a kid, I never bother to learn bout money.  Dudes I’m  too young for that and my parents are rich, I still can eat la. But things start to change when I enter university. Money is  always being  my first world problem though I have sponsorship. Honestly, I can’t get of rid of the habit of spending carelessly. My bank always running out of cash before the end of the semester. Then, I start to skip my lunch and even my dinner in order to cut the budget. My last resort is asking money from parents, but it is never easy. The feeling of guilt always holds me back.

Because of the guilt, I start to become greedy and desire to be rich. Being poor is suck, having financial problem is troublesome and being penniless is frustrating. I start to think money has power, and I desire to have that power.i want to be wealthy, wealthier than the Rockefeller and Rosthchild. I am greedy, and I admit it. and I’m proud of it.  I don’t to feel guilty for having that kind of desire because I believe that desire will create a better me in the future.

But, I have decided to live my life for others. I want to be rich for others. When I have more money, I can give more. I can give the homeless home to return, I can feed more starving kids, I can build more school for the poor and etc etc. I vow to myself not to let the money rule me. I want to be like my dad but richer than him. one day if anyone ask me who inspires you, I will proudly say ‘dad’. I learn to give from him, and because of that I respect him more than anyone else. When you give, you are not simply making other people happy, but actually your kindness eases you more than the person you help. Positivity is too good to be kept alone, so spread it.

To dad, I owe you the greatest life lesson.
To the world, I vow I’ll live to give.
even if my dead body can be use, take what u need.

lesson

Good to know that I’m in early 20s, well fed, well educated and healthy. Alhamdulillah, it is a blessing to be born in a wealthy family. I don’t have to worry bout foods,clothes and my tuition fees, because my parents have it well prepared for me. Plus, I live in a peaceful and economically stable country where I should not worry about waking up the next day to the sound of riffles or sleeping with a rope around my tummy tightly tied to shooo away the growling tummy.  Alhamdullilah, I AM SO GLAD!

However, this comfortable life is not ‘design’ for all. There are many girl like me, out there, somewhere across the globe struggle to see the rising sun. They live their life worrying about the bullets awaiting for them and their beloved behind the concrete walls. In another part of the world, some of my sisters are fighting for education and at the other part, some of them are picking  up the bread crumbs that scattered on the dusty ground. Their life  is pathetic and i can’t imagine living with it every single day. To be honest, I rather die than having a stressful life. The perk of being born in comfortable zone I could say. 

Rising up in a comfortable zone is amazing but in other hand, being trapped in a comfortable zone is pathetic. People who already get used to comfort, picture hardship as apocalypse. Like me. When it comes to hardship, I easily break down and torn apart. People like me, if you put me together with them, in my current condition, will jump off the building as soon as life become sour. Even small problem sometimes will make me give up with life. I have no idea to turn sour lemon into lemonade,tho. 

However, people whom waking up with the struggle for living picture life differently.  They seem to appreciate life more than me.  If u go to ruined down country, I guarantee you that you will see  lively smiles behind the teary eyes. These people treasure their life more than us. Despite the torturous life that they need to endure, they manage to smile. Wide and bright. I believe; they see hope in every hardship, glimpse of lights in the dark alley. They are determine, they are faithful, strong, and above all, the treasure life more than us. These make them a superb human being. They are indeed  superheroes in disguise . Amuhzingggg!

Therefore, I thank Almighty, for all the blessing that being granted for me and for my beloved family. Life is so good and I really wish everyone can feel it. It's so good till some call it paradise. Having money is good, enough food is great and going to college is superb. I wish to share it with all the unfortunate people who can’t experience this ‘paradise’. definitely they will over the moon and their smile will be brighter than the shinning sun. nope, not exaggerating...:P

  And in return for that , please teach me how to live like superhero. ^.^
