I'm going to acknowledge the fact that I have been ignoring this blog for the longest time, but who cares? LOL. You know, I'm busy with this thing called life. Priorities, people! But I love writing, so here I am. Just needed a break from the hectic-ness of it all and reflect on myself.
The other day I went to the business office lots nearby my house to get something ordered for Adinda. When I return back to my car, I sat in front of the steering wheel, cooling myself under the gushing air from the A/C turned on at full blast. Then I saw this gentleman...he was carrying a stack of cardboard boxes on top of his head. He went to one trash bin to the other looking for more boxes, I would assume, to be sent to the recycling centre, and earn himself some money.
It's easy to pity him.
But I believe, more importantly, when we saw this kind of situation, remember it's Allah's little reminders to look back on all the blessings that we have been bestowed upon. How lucky am I that I get to sit in a car in stead of scavenging for boxes under the scorching sun? Or how lucky am I to even own a car? Or how lucky am I to have a stable job (I have to say a good one that pays well)? The list goes on...
I believe that if we have to compare our life with others, compare to those who is less fortunate as opposed to those who seems to have a better life. We may not know amidst all the things appears better when we look at others, they are facing Allah's tests in some other way. Even wealth can be a test.
It is not my intention for this post to be "tunjuk baik", just sharing my thought ;)
