I always hated successful people.
You know the kind. They have a nice house, great parents, a good relationship and a decent job.
Sometimes they complain a bit. But they only do it to comfort you.
In reality they have everything. And they know it. And you know it.
I always wanted to be one of them. And I always knew I just couldn’t.
Then something happened…
One day I saw an old shop on the street that I have already passed countless times in the past.
But now something dragged me in. I just felt, I just knew that this time I have to stop.
So, for the first time ever, I have entered.
And there it was…
It was a little statue.
And it was laughing at me.
It was so happy, so joyful, so careless that it made me angry immediately.
But then I felt a light breeze that calmed me down.
I stepped closer to have a second look.
How can he be so happy? And why am I not?
I wanted to figure out. I wanted to figure it out badly. So I took a deep breath and bought it…
I’m not sure any more how it happened.
I saw him in the morning and the moment I got home from work.
He was on the shelf, waiting for me every day.
And as time passed I started to like his smile, his happiness, his joy.
We became friends.
And then, before I even realized it, my life has changed forever…
Did I change? Or my fate has changed? I will never know…
But day after day I felt better and better. I met nice people everywhere, I made new friends, I even got a promotion.
Suddenly everything clicked. Everything made sense. And I had a friend, right on the shelf, always smiling.
