The Best Gift

When I think of all the complaints I've made in this blog, I suppose I still have a lot to be thankful for. This may be trivial to most people but to me, after waking up for the 49th year this morning, I came to realise that just being able to breathe, walking about the house, chatting with my family, going to work, meeting and laughing with friends, are all things that I have taken for granted all this while. Things that I now realise are actually the most valuable gifts that anyone can get. Valuable because they are things that you cannot buy from any store anywhere in the world. Sometimes all you need to do to realise that these little things in life are gifts in themselves, is to take a little time to ponder. Quoting an unforgettable dialogue from an animated movie; 'The past is history, the future is a mystery but today is a gift. That is why it is called the present". Don't give me any present, just give me my present!


  1. hello,sir..!i can understand what are you want to tell about...
    but, the last sentences i can't pick up what that what meaning..
    the word'After walking up for the 49th year this morning' meaning today is your birthday?
    lastly i will take your advise in this blog as my guide in my daily life

  2. Well, the last sentence 'don't give me any present, just give me my present' means don't give me any presents (gifts) for my birthday because all I need is the present that is today. Hope that helps! Thanks for the comment!
