Missing Piece Story

  1. 2. The piece about “Imperfectness” and “Satisfaction”
  2. 3. He’s missing a piece. He’s very sad.
  3. 4. He set off to find the missing piece.
  4. 5. He rolled along, singing….. “ Oh, I am going to look for my missing piece, I am going to look for my missing piece, Ah ha ha, on the way, To look for my missing piece”
  5. 6. Sometimes, he has to bear the heat of the sun…..
  6. 7. Following that, that icy cold rain falls…..
  7. 8. Sometimes the snow freezes him up. Then the sun will come out to give him warmth…..
  8. 9. Because he is missing a piece, so he can’t roll very fast. Thus, he could stop and chat with the worm…..
  9. 10. Or smell the flowers…..
  10. 11. Sometimes he overtakes the beetle…..
  11. 12. Sometimes the beetle will also overtake him.
  12. 13. This kind of moment is the happiest for him.
  13. 14. He continued on across the ocean “ Oh, I am looking for my missing piece Across the land and seas Not afraid of the long road ahead, I am looking for my missing piece.”
  14. 15. Through the swamps and scrubs,
  15. 16. Up the mountains,
  16. 17. And down the mountains.
  17. 18. “ Hold on”, the piece said “ Don’t sing that “not afraid of the long road ahead”….. “yet….. Till one day, he saw it and sang “ I have found my missing piece, I have found my missing piece, Not afraid of the long road ahead, I have found…”
  18. 19. “ I am not your missing piece. I am not anyone’s piece. I am my own piece. Even if I am someone’s missing piece, I believe it would not be yours.”
  19. 20. “ Orh !” He sadly said. “ Sorry to disturb you.” And he went on his way again.
  20. 21. He then found another piece.
  21. 22. But this piece was too small.
  22. 23. This one was too big.
  23. 24. This one is slightly too sharp.
  24. 25. This one was too squarish.
  25. 26. There was once when he found a piece with the perfect fit. But he did not grab hold of it tight.
  26. 27. And he dropped it.
  27. 28. There was another time when he grabbed hold of it too tight...
  28. 29. … and broke it.
  29. 31. He went along his way again.
  30. 32. Met with some dangers,
  31. 33. Fell into a pit,
  32. 34. Crashed into a stone wall.
  33. 35. One day, he met another piece which seemed to be a perfect fit.
  34. 36. “ Hi!” He said. “ Hi!” the piece said. “ Are you anyone’s missing piece?” “ No, I am not.” “ Then are you your own piece?” “ I can be someone’s piece, as well as, be my own piece” “ You probably would not like to be my missing piece.” “ Not really.” “ Maybe we are not suitable.” “ Don’t say that…”
  35. 37. “ How is it?” “ Feels good.”
  36. 38. Very suitable! A perfect fit! Finally found it! Finally found it!
  37. 39. So fast that he could not stop to chat with the little worm. He rolled along, because he does not miss a piece anymore, he rolled faster and faster, faster than never before.
  38. 40. He can’t stop to smell the flowers too.
  39. 41. So fast that the butterfly is not able to rest on him.
  40. 42. But he could sing his happy song. He finally can sing : “ I found my missing piece.”
  41. 43. He started to sing: “ Ummm…Bleh…Hmmm, Ummm…Bleh…Hmmm, Hmmp…Ummp…” Oh god, He does not miss a piece now, but he cannot sing.
  42. 44. “ I know why.” He thought. “ There’s a reason here.” He stopped.
  43. 45. And put down his missing piece,
  44. 46. And left…..
  45. 47. He moved along, and sang softly:
  46. 48. “ Oh, I am looking for my missing piece, I am looking for my missing piece, Ah ha ha, on the road, To look for my missing piece.”
  47. 51. 在一個講究包裝的社會裡,我們常禁不住羨慕別人光鮮華麗的外表,而對自己的欠缺耿耿於懷。 In this society that emphasizes on the packaging, we would sometimes inevitably envy other people’s good looks, and lament about our own imperfection.
  48. 52. But in fact there’s not a single person whose is perfect, Everyone has a lack of something. Some couples are very loving, with handsome earnings, but they could have problems bearing child. Some people have the looks and talent, but could have a rough time in relationships. Some people have lots of money, but they don’t have filial children. Some people look to have a good life, but their brain could be empty all their life.
  49. 53. Everyone’s life has been designed with imperfections, You may not want it, but it will follow you. I used to hate my imperfections, But now I have learnt to accept it with open arms
  50. 54. The flaw in life is like a spike on our backs, reminding us to be humble and empathetic with others.
  51. 55. If there are no hardships, we will be complacent. If there are no sufferings, we cannot be compassionate and console those who are less fortunate. Life cannot and can never be too perfect. Having a crack, to let happiness flow to others, is a beautiful thing.
  52. 56. You don’t have to have everything. If you have everything, what’s left for the others? Also recognise that life has flaws, That you shall not compare yourself with others, Instead cherish what you already have.
  53. 57. So, don’t go around envying others, count the blessings that Heaven has bestowed upon you. You will find that there are more things that you have, than things that you don’t have.
  54. 58. And what you do not have, although not lovable, is very much part of your life, Accept and appreciate it, and your life will be much happier. *~*~*~*~*
