Money is becoming more and more important in daily life. Without it, there’s much that cannot be achieved. But what this Malaysian did with his money will inspire you!
Facebook user Jagdish Singh posted a new update a couple days ago about how money values to him. His post writes,
“This morning I had my haircut. The barber was quite a young chap from India. Actual charge was only RM12 but today I paid RM32, including RM20 tip to him. He seems quite shocked, I told him ‘This one you keep’ and thanked him for the haircut before moving back home. It struck in my mind just exactly how much he earns and how much he sends back home with our currency rate now. Does he have any wife or kids back home? Did he even have his breakfast? What is the value of RM20?
Earlier just now, I had my late lunch in a small ‘gerai’ in Bukit Bintang. I saw 2 army and 2 police personnel having their lunch together with their weapons in hand. I opened my wallet and I saw only RM20. I called upon the waiter and told him I’ll be back after taking out cash from the nearby bank. Coming back from the bank, I noticed they were still there. I asked the waiter if they’ve paid and he said ‘Not yet’. I told him that I’ll pay for them all. After all, just how much I might spend? It was only RM30 for all four. Is RM30 enough for the duty of protecting the life of others? Can that money buy their life if it’s ever lost?
So what does 20 or 30 ringgit means to me?
It’s just a value on a piece of paper. Having lived 31 years and if suddenly I’m dead tomorrow, these papers would not benefit me in anyway. I admit I don’t earn much but what stops me from giving? What makes us think by just making money, by saving a lot of it, by collecting tons of it and keeping it all to ourselves we’ll be happy? Does it guarantee you eternal life? Hell not. Today if I didn’t spend this RM50 on others, I might be chillin’ in a pub drinking and enjoying myself, I might buy a brand new shirt, I would have spent it for a Tony Romas dinner, I would have been enjoying Starbucks, I would have filled up my cars tank but seriously…. Is that all that matters? Is it only about us? Aren’t we all human beings living on the same goal? So why the stinginess?
Today, this 50 ringgit of mine which I gave away, didn’t steal my smile, it didn’t make me hungry, it didn’t make me sad, I didn’t regret, it definitely didn’t make me any poorer. What I’ve lost, I can always gain back.
It just made me realize that whatever I have is just a value on a paper. But if you put that value of a paper on yourself, then you’re actually really worth it. Your life is worthy, only if you are.”
Wayda go Jagdish! We will definitely learn what you’ve done and spread the joy all over the world.
