32) Be a Happy Monkey

Posted on

This is the front cover of positive thinking campaign post card by the Singapore Health Promotion Board.  Though the campaign was held many years back, but the post card is still sticking on my wall.  It pose as a reminder to me and the cute monkeys always made my day.

The campaign is also broadcasted on TV, with a few animated monkeys talking about how they feel so blessed though they are only getting peanuts for their salary.

At the back of the card, the Authority concerned throw 3 questions asking for feedback for a positive mind.  This is an effective way of getting people to think and find a solution to their own answer.

 I’ve chosen “I think about the good things in my life” among the 3 answers.

 First of all, there are too many good things in my life.  I’m not here talking about how much I have in my savings, and not referring to how complete a life cycle people always define to be.

 I’m talking about the living up to an age with a moderate health condition, moderate standard of living, moderate unevenness of my path.  That is good enough for me to conclude how much good things I owned in my life!

 I’ve yet to include the blogging trails with the world that I have started 6 months ago.  And I have not included my good bonding friendship with all my dear friends, my family members and my other half.  Last but not least, how about my pet dog, Cougar!

All these enhance my quality of life and are comfortable enough to be treated like a 5-star dinner.  I have so much side dish to recommend if I wanted to!

 I can be served with a simple meal just with vegetables, though I’m not a vegetarian.  I can bring in plants to add lush to the dinning hall, but I prefer to eat under the sky beside the green.

 That’s the reason why these cute monkeys are still swinging on the wall without resting for a day!  My gratitude to them for serving as a reminder, reminding us to create positive energy for our own and extension to others beyond your own circle.  How about that?!
