As a small child , I was very *selfish*, always grabbing the best for myself.🙄
Slowly, everyone left me and I had no friends. I *didn’t think* it was my fault and I criticize others.🤔
But my father gave me 3 sentences to *help* me in life.🤨
One day, my father cooked 2 bowls of noodles and put them. on the table.🤔
One had an egg on top while the other bowl had none on top.🙂
Then he asked me to choose a bowl of noodles 🍜 .
Because eggs were hard to come by those days.... I chose the bowl with egg! 🙂🙂🙂
I was congratulating myself on my wise choice/decision and decided to wallop the egg....to my surprise as my father's bowl of noodles had *two* eggs at the bottom of his bowl beneath the noodles ! 😀 😀
With much regret, I scolded myself for being too hasty in my decision.🤔🤔
My father smiled and *taught* me to remember that *what your eyes see may not be true*😇 .
He added that *If you make a habit of *taking advantage of people, you will end up losing*😇
The next day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles: one bowl with an egg on top and the other bowl with no egg on top.
Again, he asked to choose the bowl I wanted🤔
This time I felt smarter so I chose the bowl without any egg on top.🙂
Hmmmmmm to my surprise, there was not even a single egg at the bottom of the bowl!😱
Again, my father smiled and said to me, *My child, you must not always rely on experiences because sometimes, life can cheat you or play tricks on you*.
Never be too annoyed or sad, with situations, *just treat experience as learning a lesson experience that cannot be gotten from any textbooks.🤔🤔🙂
The third day, my father again cooked 2 bowls of noodles, one bowl with an egg on top and the other with no egg on top.🤔🤨
He asked me to choose the bowl I wanted 🤔.
But this time, I told my father, *Dad, you choose first, you are the head of the family and you contribute the most to the family*.
My father was happy to and choose for me🙌🏽🙌🏽
He chose the bowl with one egg on top, but as I ate my bowl of noodles, to my surprise! There were *two* eggs at the bottom of the bowl.👍🏽🙂
My father smiled at me with love in his eyes, he said *my child, you must remember that when you think for the good of others, good things will always naturally happen to you*😇
I always remember these 3 sentences of my father
