The one with just because

Ever since I left work, it has been a conscious effort for me to look for ways to earn to at least compensate for the moolahs i used to enjoy and mind you, it's not a walk in the park. But it comforts me knowing that this is the priority we set and heck, i bet we'd still look for extra income have i still been working? the costs are just too high now and with baby needs adding up to our current bills, it's just so hard to save nowadays.

And just last night, I was saddened seeing on the news about a child hit by a truck and immediately lost his life. His parents could'nt afford a lawyer to give justice to the loss of their child, simply because they don't have the money to pay for one. It 's sad to see street kids begging for money and their parents can't provide decent food for them. it makes you count your blessings more but at the same time leave a guilty feeling of why i can't help all of them. Your resources are just enough, you can only do this much.

But after seeing the movie Pay It Forward last night starred by Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and the A.I. boy, i know it is still possible...to help and exponentially bless people. The movie is about a boy who had the idea of helping someone ( a stranger perhaps) but the help should be something big, something he or she can't do on his own and ask the one he helped to "Pay it forward" and do it to three more. I think if we all live a "pay it forward" life, all of us sooner or later will achieve exponentially blessed life. :) So, who do i choose for my Pay It Forward? I'll let you know.
