I was telling one of my bosses about my trip, especially about my room. How I wasnt supposed to have towers view, but I was thinking about how would it be lovely to see the towers from my window. I went to my room, opening the curtain, and on the left there were the towers.

Laughingly he said, "You got a lot."
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"Well, you've got a lot going for you"
"Oh, yeah"

I know I've been complaining about things. But every now and then something great happened in my life. Sometimes it's a small thing like this bloke gave me small change because I couldnt exchange my money anywhere for my locker while he scolded the next person who had the same problem as I did. Or a grand gesture of a friend who stood by me when my brother got married.

Despite all the low points in my life (and some of them were really low), I know full well that I'm blessed. I'm counting my blessings.

In tghe long run and in a wider perspective our lives usually show a reasonable 'balance-sheet'. But not for everybody and not in each period of life. And unfortunately bad luck, disappointments, personal traumas, problems in general etc, stand out if only because they usually take a lot of our energy.

Hope your trip to Bandung will be added to the blessings.
