Always be thankful =)
On yesterday’s morning, I broke one of my cymbals.. I felt like crap during several hours, ’cause it costs like $300 bucks. It hurt, although it’s material stuff and I don’t care much about material, the thing is that it took a lot of effort for me to buy it, and watching it broken is frustrating.
So what did I do about it? In the moment, nothing.. I don’t know how to fix a broken cymbal, but I know the one who can do it (unfortunately, he lives about 90 miles away) and I don’t have the guts to travel to a big city all by myself with a cymbal like this, it’s pretty risky when you’re 17. So I’ll try to find someone who can go with me 🙂 .
But.. Beyond a broken cymbal
I learned quite well that I need to be thankful about this, because being thankful is the way how you show the world how much you care, and I feel very grateful that it can be fixable, that it lasted me through all this years in different shows, that it will last a couple of more years if I take good care of it and specially being grateful that I have the joy to have it 🙂
Once I read on a best seller book called The Secret about the law of attraction, it is definitely one of my favorite books, because beyond how dreadful you think it is while you’re reading with thoughts like ‘naah I don’t believe this crap, this has been the worst investment in my life. I’m sure it doesn’t work, so this book goes straight to eBay’
It’s not like that 🙂 ‘The magical way to get everything’ is not the purpose as it teaches you to have a better life, even if you reach or not your goals. Great book, highly recommended.
So what’s next?
Getting to know yourself is essential to find the right way to appreciate what you’ve got, it’s not about the pain that you feel once you lost it, it’s about knowing what you’ve got inside of you and outside as well; feeling every little detail of it, appreciate what you’ve got (your family, your partner, your friends, everything you have in life, even breathing) and soon you’ll see how life gives ten times more of what you’ve got. Every positive thought, is a seed of happiness in your mind, waiting for you to make it grow by bringing your heart out to the world.
