Those questions that maybe nobody besides me is asking themselves... or that everyone is asking themselves - #1. "Unique" gifts

How much would you value a present you got from someone you like, let's say something like a small nice gesture made just for you and that made you feel special at the moment you got it, if you should suddenly discover that they gave the same present to someone else?

Would you think "No biggie, business as usual!", would you appreciate how generous those people are with just anybody, or something would change for the worse,  in the way you see them and your relationship with them, no matter what kind of? 

[This thoughtful gift is just for you...
and for other fifty human beings around us right now]


Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.
Khalil Gibran 
[born Gubran Khalil Gubran bin Mikhā'īl bin Sa'ad, 1883-1931]

What does matter to you?
The gift per se? The occasion? The uniqueness of the gesture? That you got it from someone special to you? All of the above? None of the above?

A very big challenge in everyone's life is trying to change the way our mind looks at what happens around us. It's a life-long journey and we can't be sure that we'll succeed at it.

The main point is: Do we always have to?
Do I really want to see things in another way or can I feel hurt and not appreciated?
