There are people with a bigger battle
It's been in my mind for a while. I've been through a turmoil cracks for quite some time that it's gotten me down for many many times before. But when I see something like this, it always reminds me that there are people who fight harder than me. Those people who don't have a morning coffee, a descent shelter. While I, on the other hand, can still afford a $5 Starbucks coffee, have a way better place to stay, going places, and so on and so on. It really makes me think.
Despite of everything that I've been through, I don't lose much. And it makes me ashamed of myself for those times that I let it take me down. While these people, and they're just a small number of example, have a bigger battle than me and they're still standing there. Making life. We all have more to be grateful for. More than we realise.
I feel so lucky that from time to time, when those obstacle taking too much of my thoughts, there's always a reminder for me that life is brutally just. Keith wrote about the exact same thought a few days ago, and he asked the ultimate question. "What does being thankful means to you?". For me, it's do the best I can with what I have and share. And I promised myself, that whenever the ebbs and flows coming around, I'll fight harder than before. Just like I always do.
