As you can see, I don't usually share Internet-posted things on my blog. But there are exceptions. This time, I would like to share a short excerpt of an interview with J. K. Rowling.
In case of those who have no idea who she is, she is the author of Harry Potter series.
Most of the fans would know how J. K. Rowling wrote one of the phenomenal series during the last decade, most of the time inside a café called The Elephant House. What was presented to the public was that she was on welfare during the time, difficult time... And this is her view after she's gotten her bestseller, which is something we should bear in mind often.
In my opinion, this is a great kind of mindset. No matter we are on welfare, food coupon, parents' financial support or so forth, it should be our short term solution. We could view it as the kindness and compassion of others who invest on us, so that we could work our way out of current situation. All the time, grateful. Always be grateful and appreciate these, as blessings and opportunity. We shouldn't look at these as entitlement. And in future when we are able, we would return these goodwill, to the party/person who helped us, or transfer the kindness to others who are in need. We should work to make someone's investment on us a successful one, and continue to invest on another, and hopefully the line continues.
I fear my descriptive here might not be very clear, but yea, something to think about...
