Living A FUNtastic Life (Part 29)

by Patrick Liew on September 10, 2011

I was writing this Love Note while I was sitting in the Business Class cabin of the best airline in the world – Singapore Airlines (You can tell I’m a proud Singaporean).

A good friend of mine had paid for my ticket to accompany him on his business trip. There were some matters that he wanted to discuss with me.

The ambience was great. Service – exceptional. Seat – absolutely comfortable.

The air stewardess had served me a delightful meal put together by an international panel of award-winning chefs.

While eating my food, I was reading an interesting book by a renowned Russian-born professor.

I knew many people would envy me and would do anything to exchange place with me. I should be having a great time.

There was one moment in time when I was looking at a passenger across the aisle.

I was trying to read her magazine. Then, I started to look at her food, admiring it, and imagining its taste.

Then, a thought hit me.

Oftentimes, I have looked elsewhere for a better experience in life. Yet, the best experience could just be right in front of me – and it was within my grasp.

Our Creator has put in place wonderful experiences… magnificent views… invigorating sounds… sensational aroma… touching moments… and uplifting emotions… just for me.

There is beauty all around me – if only I care to look. There is wonder within my reach – if only I stretch out to get hold of them.

There are magical experiences – if only I seek to live them.

Happiness is around me – and within me. I have to take ownership of it from right now.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.

By the way, I have also recorded other reflections.

Question: How can we enjoy the beauty, the wonder, and the magical around us?
