Finger CountingIt is close to the end of the year and time for me to count my blessings again! I have started doing so eversince I turned 50.
Life has been full of challenges for me: poverty, betrayal, desertion, office politics etc. And I can always blame my parents for giving me my freckles, the only child among eight with freckles.
But why torturing myself with these negative thoughts? Why keep recalling bad memories? I am my own master. I decide how I feel. This awakening brought in my new life!
I am, generally speaking, healthy. I am still a useful person in many ways. At my senior age, I still have my mother. She is diabetic but well taken care of by the public health system. And she is a really good girl controlling her sugar intake. I am not rich but my wants are always satisfied. My son has a loving wife and an adorable daughter. I live in this clean, safe city of Hong Kong.
