Have you ever got this experience? “My pocket left only ten Ringgit. I’m lack of cash for tomorrow meal.” I do experience this kind of situation often. It will have no effect to us if the next day we have no other plan then we are save. But these experiences always happen when I have something on the next day. Always happen when I have a normal day activity for example working day.
Tomorrow is a working day, and I left ten Ringgit in my purse for my daily expenses like transportation and meal. How should I cope with this? My transportation cost me more than half of what I left and the balance goes to my meal. Unfortunately, today is not my lucky day. I don’t have extra cash hidden in my secret place. I always like to keep some cash in my hidden place for my emergency usage.
When I think about this situation, I feel insecure. Scared about how I will survive a day like that. When I was a small kid, I used to think that 10 Ringgit is a big amount. Now, it becomes a burden if that amount left in my pocket with no emergency cash in hand.
Nowadays, the younger generations seldom feel this kind of situation. For them ten Ringgit is just a small amount that has a small value. They always complaint when their parents gave them only ten ringgit for their daily expenses. What they don’t know is that their parents too used to have this experienced. They work hard to gain what they have today and they appreciate it. Therefore, our parents would like to teach us and let us experienced it, as we experienced it we will be more mature.
Some parents spoiling their child with a luxurious life and things. Let’s look around ourselves. Today, children with average age less than 15 years old have game consoles, Smartphone, tablet and etc. After so many things they have, they still complaining if they did not get what they want. They will behave rudely to parent or elder people if they did not get it. When will they become mature?
I know older day is different from now, today is the modern technology days. Somehow when I see this kind of attitude in children hurts me a lot and d feel like want to help and guide them. Seeing them hurt their parents by being rude just because did not get what they want is not an appropriate attitude.
Anyway, I feel grateful that this kind of situation happens on me so that I will appreciate what I have now. Although I myself is from the modern technology generation, but having this kind of experienced really make me mature a lot. I am happy when older people say I am mature than how I look like.
