A eleven years old girl went to her mother to complain. “I can’t manage to have friends. They all stay away from me because I’m so jealous.”
Her mother was taking care of newly-born chickens, and the girl held up one of them, which immediately tried to escape. The more the girl squeezed it in her hands, the more the chicken struggled.
Her mother said: “try holding it gently.”
She obeyed her. She opened her hands and the chicken stopped struggling. She began to stroke it and the chicken cuddled up between her fingers.
“Human beings are like that too,” said her mother. “If you want to hold onto them by any means, they escape. But if you are kind to them, they will remain for ever by your side.”
Anything that you learn becomes your wealth, a wealth that cannot be taken away from you; whether you learn it in a school or thru bad or good experiences of life. To learn something new is a timeless pleasure and a valuable treasure.
The wealth of a soul is measured by how much it can feel. Grateful souls focus on the happiness and abundance present in their lives and this in turn attracts more abundance and joy towards them.
True wealth is of the heart, not of the purse.

“But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face.
Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking.
But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”
