People have BIGGER problem than me

Another blog which I used to frequent is Odissi's blog. This blog was recommended by mystic_grey. It's written by a Malaysian who is currently staying in London. What I like about this blog is her writing style. She's a journalist and naturally, her writing style is pretty interesting.

I had a good laugh reading today's entry. It was her words of wisom at the end that prompted me to write something today. There are a lot of people who have BIGGER problems than me and therefore I should be very thankful for what I am having today (or thankful for not having when problems, headaches, family matters, etc). Just an hour ago I was having my lunch and had to share a table with a couple of people. From their conversation, the lady was extremely pissed with someone in the company and is threatening to leave the company. The man was not pacifying her either and was adding salt to the wound. As the conversation progress, she became hysteric and her voice was getting louder and louder. It was an awkward situation for me.

At an adjacent table, a few young men were delivering expletives at, I am guessing, another co-worker at work.

Thinking back, I don't think I have much of a problem at work with all my co-workers. I don't remember being shouted at by colleagues or managers. I don't remember shouting at people. And I don't remember losing sleep over work too. Ok, perhaps once or twice.. but that's like a rarity than a norm. 8 years of blissful working life and here I was, thinking about quitting. Lesson learned: Be thankful.

When in doubt, always remember Odissi's story about other people having bigger problems. The problems I faced daily are insubstantial!

My opinion on iPhone X

I'm a huge fan of everything Apple. And yet, I don't have the latest Apple gear. I'm not that rich to buy every Apple gear there...
