Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy.

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.

Wherever I go and whatever I do, I try to pay attention, because I believe there is something to learn from every situation. That’s why I enjoy talking to my friend Jorge (the one that thought me about the Virtuose Circle of Business Owners), I always learn something new from him.

I had lunch with him the other day. He told me that he has a son in a boarding school in the US, and his best friend is from Sweeden. One day, Jorge’s son and his friend went to the theater, and his friend drove them there. They arrived early, so the parking lot was almost empty. The sweedish boy parked his car at the farthest end of the lot. Jorge’s son asked him why he had parked there, if the parking lot was empty, they could park right at the entrance of the theater, and this was his answer:

“We arrived earlier than everybody else. We were lucky to have the time to come earlier. Not everybody will be so lucky. Some people are going to be stuck in traffic or tied up with something else, and they will be late. It is only fair to leave the closest spots to them, so they don’t have to run across the parking lot”.

What a lesson on the differences of our cultures, and what a lesson on life and gratitude. Instead of taking advantage of your privileged situation, why don’t you give thanks for being in that position and use it for the benefit of someone else? You know, some day you might, and you will, find yourself at the other end of luck, and will be grateful for the cosideration of others.
