When Robert K. and his sister were children, they went cherry blossom-viewing in the park. Robert was so poor growing up, that the only brother-sister date he could afford for his sister was to the park. No shopping dates, no cinema dates. Just cherry blossom-gazing.
Robert’s sister didn’t mind that they were poor in the pocket. They were already rich. Even as the cherry blossoms faded and the siblings went their separate ways, they never forgot about the cherry blossoms-dates that they had growing up.
Robert became a businessman and his sister became a buddhist nun. But each of them have one they in common: even if the petals of the cherry tree fall and all of the money in the world fades away; money isn’t the real thing that makes one rich. It’s knowing the true things in life that make you rich.
In Doris Dörrie essays, the writer explains that rich people are poor when they are greedy,bitter and resentful. Rich people are truly rich when they are kind, open-hearted and giving. Even if they are penniless.
Being rich takes time and a lot of hard work, practice;kindness and heart.
Go for broke!
