A Space of My Own 我的空间

Contentment

Posted on: October 20, 2009


After
the (relatively) depressing post below, I realized that I need a
reminder to be contented with the lot I have. I got that reminder this
morning.

I may not have enough sleep, but I am still healthy.

My
grades may not be good, but I still get to go into university. And
despite of everything negative I say about uni life here, deep down I
still enjoy it.

My family may have expectations for me, but they never pressure me. In fact they show they care a lot for me.

I
am not a fast learner in school, but then at least I have a chance to
learn the things I learn, and many more lessons in life besides.

I may not excel among my peers, but I found good friends in them. Thanks Yew Hong, Mei, Kasun, Gant, and the rest! 🙂

I may not turn out rich, or have a glamorous job, but God will take care of me.

I
may not have everything in the world, but I have Christ, who is more
than everything in the world. How can I not be contented? 🙂

The
quote goes: Lack of contentment makes a rich man poor; contentment
makes a poor man rich. To me, contentment opens my eyes to behold how
rich this poor girl actually is, for in Christ, nothing I lack.

Thanks Martyn 🙂 Am always encouraged by you too.Piang! Thanks for the advice. Don\’t worry, I love myself too much to overwork (which probably explains my CAP). And why are you no longer updating your blog of tiny fonts????
