Grateful, thankful

There is a moment when you do something good and it leads to another thing you never imagine. For me, it is the moment when I feel so grateful about life. I'm so grateful that I feel all the things I do couldn't be enough to repay what I've been given. And the only way to repay it is by keep on doing a better good, then that thing will lead you to the next other thing.

By keep on doing things, you try to push the boundary bit by bit. Once Margaret Tatcher said that it is not about 'to be', but it is about 'to do'. What is essential is what we do, and what we become is just the consequence. We live in this world is to do something, to be something is just the effect.

Do good. Everyday. You will be grateful, and thankful.

After almost 1 hour of waiting, I was lucky that she replied to my question. Below is the original excerpt from the session, I hope her answer might help you too (I deleted the preamble greetings and salutations—like ‘hello’, or ‘thank you’—just to make it straight to the point).
