.: Change Your Perspective Of Life :.

How does one not tear after reading this article?

Here is an old man, who, at 78 years, should be sitting at home or having coffee at the nearest coffeshop with other fellow retirees chatting about or spending time with his children/grandchildren at home. And yet, this man is up at 6am, rummaging thru garbage bins collecting recyclables, earning a honest living, so that he can have some money to buy something nice for his two teenage grandchildren for Raya.

Just be grateful and thankful for everything we have... to complain less and appreciate more...

MALACCA: Everyday from morning till evening, a grandfather is diligently scouring the backlanes of Heritage Zone here to collect recyclable items all for the love of his two teenage granddaughters.

Ali Ahmad hopes the weather will be kind because it is easier to work on sunny days, and he wants to quickly collect and sell enough items to raise RM400 to give to his granddaughters this Hari Raya.

From 6am to 4pm since Monday, the 68-year-old can be seen rummaging through garbage bags and trash cans.

“It is not an easy thing to do. It is smelly and sometimes, dogs come after me.

“Some folks also look down on what I am doing.

But I ignore their stares because I am earning an honest income,” said the former driver for a local authority when met at the back lane along Jalan Bendahara here yesterday.

Ali is determined to achieve his goal because he wants his granddaughters to “have money to buy something nice for Hari Raya”.

“My wife is frail, and my pension is small. The money is not enough to buy Hari Raya stuff because I have to take care of the house rental and other daily expenses.

“I hope what I am doing now will bring in some money,” he said, adding that he sells the salvaged items to a local recycling centre.

.: Lesson In Optimism :.

It is a known-fact that I am not exactly the most optimistic of person. In fact, I can be very much like Eeyore most of the time.

So, when a friend posted on her Facebook wall that she needed help to win some Hello Kitty stuff on some Facebook contest, I clicked on to check it out. A scrolled thru comments after comments and saw that one person had like 130+ likes. And then I spotted her name further down, and at the bottom of her comment box, there was 7 likes.

Ah, I said to myself, tough luck.

 I closed the screen without bothering to vote and proceed to checking my emails, blogshopping, paying my bills online, downloading some Photoshop tutorial and having an argument with someone else on Facebook. And then, pop, that particular friend’s message appeared on Facebook.

“Hi” she started, and before she even begin to type finish, I knew what she wanted.

“You want me to vote for you right?” I typed and pressed entered, almost a second after she told me she needed my vote to help her win.

“Do you know that there’s someone who’s like 130+ likes ahead from you?” I asked. “How optimistic are you in your chances of winning?” I continued.

She replied (something to this line, no word for word) “Yes, I know. But I still want to try. It’s better to try and lose than to never try at all.” And because of that, she had my ‘like’.

Just because you don’t think you’d have a chance that should not stop you from even trying. Afterall, there’s nothing to lose, and much to gain.

By the way, she did not win that Hello Kitty thingamabob. But what she had done is taught me a humble lesson.

Well, hopefully her optimism she transferred on twitter actually rubs off on me.

.: Forgive Those Who Have Sinned Against Us :.

An Iranian woman has forgiven the man who blinded and disfigured her face, by throwing acid at her.

The AAP reported she forgave her attacker and decided not to go ahead with the court-ordered retribution, which involved a doctor putting acid into his eyes. This is based on the Islamic law system of "qisas," or eye-for-an-eye retribution. She asked the doctor to spare him at the last minute in a dramatic scene broadcast on Iran's state television.

Ameneh Bahrami lost her sight and suffered horrific burns to her face, scalp and body , when attacked by a man whose marriage proposal she rejected. "It is best to pardon when you are in a position of power," she said. The sobbing man, Majid Movahedi, said Bahrami was "very generous." It was a change of heart when the court handed down the sentence in November 2008.

Bahrami was then happy with the ruling. "I am not doing this out of revenge, but rather so that the suffering I went through is not repeated," she said in that March 2009 interview.

And forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.
Matthew 6:12

If you were in her shoes, would you have that forgiveness in your heart to forgive something done so cruelly to you? Makes you wonder about all the unforgiveness you have harboured over petty petty things done by others to you, doesn't it?
