All the time you see on TV commercials for Lotto, you can see people who seem happy having their dream vacation in a place that probably I need a day to point it on the map because it is a destination that I never dream to reach-that’s way it is called dream vacation. You see them driving a very expensive car, having parties....and you think what you would do if you've won the big pot?
The days that we are living everything has a price, you think about “the girl’s best friend” equal diamond for the one that don’t know-I just heard it myself into a movie-I thought that a best friend is a human being, at least a pet. Can anybody explain it to me how a cold rock can replace somebody who listen to you, give you advices, hold you....? In my culture it is a saying:” Money cannot bring happiness but they can sustain it”...now I can see it, you can sell your diamond for money so you can afford to pay your bills and food for a month...aha. I don’t say you don’t need a house, a home for your kids, but for the mediocre people that thing does not come with a little bit of pain like savings.
A lot of kids forget about the people who helped them in the past and when they grow up they think that everything is for them. I called them spoiled brats or people without common sense. There are parents out there who cannot afford the daily bread because they don’t have an income. But fortunately enough there are people who give, who don’t forget and they are not doing that because they are afraid that they are not going to Heaven, what is Heaven anyway? It is there? For me heaven is my conscience, the way I was raised by my parents and grandma.
You cannot take everything for granted, there are people who don’t have money but they have more than that – a soul, common sense – and I think that is a fortune in our days. Fortune is when you are not alone, having somebody next to you who listen to you: your parents, husband, brother, friend, teacher. Education is a big fortune too, sometimes parents seems boring when they tell you to go to school, to learn. You never know what life is going to bring to your doorstep, if you learn how to manage yourself, learn a foreign language, learn the basic things like math, to read and write, how to write a letter, how to have a conversation with somebody, all of this will be handy when you’ll have to face your everyday life. What I try to say is to try to enrich yourself, your soul by appreciating the people around you, by having hobbies that fulfil your mind and heart with happiness.
Who you will become as a person is your fortune in life, not the titles will make you who you are. Titles can be gained, but don’t forget that behind all that it is the personality who gained them. It is the everyday life “human” in the first place. You can leave a finger print by just being you. Every people are rich if they can appreciate what they have: the parents, the family and what they learn.
