The Princess and the Porridge!

There was once a man who was so in love with the princess and even asked the king that he wants to marry his daughter. The King in his power test the man by putting him in prison within three days without food. After 3 days, the man was already so hungry and he was badly imagining and begging to the king to give him even a little food or something to eat. So the king ordered the princess to do a porridge and when it's done and still smoking, he let the man out and brought to the table with a warm captivating porridge in front of him and the princess sat across the man.

Because the man was so hungry, his attention was focus on the porridge, he even barely noticed the princess. And when the king asked; " What or who you want, the porridge or the princess. He answered, by choosing the porridge because he thought , he is dying and his stomach needs the food that time or else he'll die. He did not think that if he chose the princess, automatically he will also get the porridge because she owns and did that porridge. The king in frustration gave him the porridge and kick him out after.

We sometimes miss the most valuable thing in life by our wrong choices. And it is when we only think on how pitty we are in the moment, forgetting the reason why we are here in such situation. "DO NOT TRADE YOUR PRINCESS FROM A PORRIDGE!"
