Haha. Last night, quite excited wanna update a new entry for my blog. Unfortunately, something has happened and I can't avoid to sort out that matter first. Yet, today inshaAllah I will try to bring about a new entry for all of my readers.
Okay, let us start. Actually, this story is about a blind boy and a man.
|cc to WeHeartIt|
One day, there was a blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said, "I am blind, please help." Unfortunately, there were only a few coins in the hat.
A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon, the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon, the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, "Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?"
The man said, "I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way. I wrote, 'Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it'. "
Readers, both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?
Okay, look! I'm sharing this story with you not for encourage you to ask for sedekah or something like that. My motive is to make us alert of being thankful for what we already have. Because some of us are default to be grateful with what Allah gave us. And remember, there are many people around us who are not as lucky as we are. So, don't ever forget to thank Allah for everything.
So, moral of the story :
----> Be thankful. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.
My dear readers, I hope this entry may bring something good for all of us. InshaAllah. I'd be glad if you can spend ur time to comment and give me some responds about what you get from this entry. Hopefully.
Ohh ya! by the way, I'm trying to update this entry entirely in English. Do correct me if I made mistakes. I'd appreciate it much. Seriously!! Here is a quote from someone I know.
'When life gives you 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 100o reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.'
