It happens when we think someone is 'better' than us.
And it happens to me. Often.
She is married to a handsome husband.
He got a Mini Cooper as birthday present.
He could quit job and go travel.
She went to a boarding school.
She is married at 23.
He is doing PhD at the age of 24.
She comes from a rich family.
She has abundant of shoes collection.
She could afford a Prada.
(and the list goes on)
But, hold on!
Where and what my life is lacking actually?
I have great parents.
I have a complete family.
I have beautiful, handsome and intelligent niece and nephew.
I have shoes to walk in.
I have enough money to buy covered cloth.
I eat plenty of delicious food everyday.
and most importantly,
I have ALLAH with me.
Enough. (before people think I start bragging about myself)
The conclusions are...
Never underestimate your own life.
Don't look at the rich, but look at the poor.
Then you will realize you have enough,
and sometimes more than what you need.
So, say Alhamdulillah, and smile.
Note: Materialistic. I know. :p
