EditorsLetterSometimes getting what you wished
for is a bigger tragedy
than not getting what you want!
Summer Holidays! Its wonderful to see how happy everyone is during
this time. So much to
do, so much fun to be hadOh to be a kid again!
One of the first things my daughter wanted to do with her best frien
d was have a lemonade
stand. What would st broken even. The news was received with blan
k stares on their faces.
They were not quite ready for that reality yet. After all, to them it wa
s just the experience of
having friends come taste their drinks, not about the money. I felt bad I
had even mentioned it.
There I was, trying to turn my daughter into a business woman at 8 ye
ars old. However, it did
remind me about the story of Midas, which I had read with Tayla a few
We all know the story of the greedy King Midas. He had a lot of gold, a
nd the more he had, the
more he wanted. He stored away all his gold and spent his days count
One day a stranger approached the King and said he would grant hi
m a wish. The king was
delighted and asked that everything he touched turned would turn
to gold. The stranger
granted king Midas his wish. The next morning when King Midas went
down for breakfast, his
newspaper, then his eggs and bacon all turned to gold. Just then his da
ughter came running to
hug him, and she instantly turned to gold. The king bowed his head an
The stranger returned and asked the King if he was happy with his gold
en touch. The King said
he had never been more miserable, and he asked for forgiveness. I w
ill give up all my gold
for my daughter, he cried. The stranger empathized with the King and s
aid, You have become
wiser and you have learned a golden lesson. And with that, he rever
sed the spell. The King
got his daughter back and learned a valuable lesson that he would n
ever forget for the rest
of his life.
Be careful what you wish for, because it may not be what you expect. T
he moral of the story for
me is to never lose perspective of whats important in your life. Happin
ess is not having great
possessions, but having fewer wants. Epictetus
I often wonder, knowing the story of King Midas, how people still ref
er to the Midas Touch
and Everything he touches turns to gold, as a positive thing. Every
one would love to have
huge wealth and success, but at what price? The King had never been m
ore miserable with his
Midas Touch. The nice thing about stories is that invariably the flawe
d character usually gets
a second chance to make everything better and the story usually end
s with a happy ending.
Life is not always so forgiving. As Bob Marley so aptly stated, Dont
Gain The World & Lose
Your Soul; Wisdom Is Better Than Any Silver or Gold.
Enjoy your summer. It truly is a gift!
