Life is easy why we make it so hard? – Reflection from our Hama student


Dear man,

How is your Ta Dung’s Video? Have you finished it?I’m doing well.
I’m writing this letter to you while I’m watching a TED’s video. This is a great video that have never seen before, so I want to share what I consider to be useful for anyone including you and me. I hope you will like it.
This video talks about a ordinary man named Jon Jandai and he comes from Thailand. His life is no difference than us. He is invited to come to TED conference to share his stories with the audiences.


You know, the first thing he said he isn’t clever than his peers at colleague. He is also poor to even buy new clothes because he can’t get enough money. On the other hand I think he is the richest man in the world. Why you may ask?. He thinks different point. Although he isn’t the richest dollar man in the world, he is the most happiest person in this earth.


In this video, he wears old fashionable clothes like a farmer’s uniform. Unlike any other TED’s speakers I have watched so far, they all wear a formal clothes and this guy is totally different. He clearly articulate feelings and thought “ Life is easy”.


He shares with his audiences a story that when he was a kid, everything was so easy for him. He didn’t have to think too much about his life. However, his thought completely change when he came to Bangkok. Life became harder for him. He had to study harder and work harder to achieve a better future. After a long time living there, he realized that life is very complicated. He asked himself that “ why do we make it so hard?” so he decided to drop out university and then came back to his hometown to set off the normal life again as he used to.


Can you believe it? During the speech he points a lot of things, he keeps saying “ Normal life is better than modern life” or “most of people who live in rural areas are happier than people who live in urban cities”. For instance, he has a small garden and he plants vegetable and rice, so he has enough food to eat, even for six members in his house. Sometimes he has surplus food to sell at the local market to have some extra money to support his life. For him, it isn’t difficult to look after his garden by himself. It’s 15-minute, simple and easy task. Unlike most people work 8 hours per day, he needs only 2 hours to take care of his work and I think it’s impressive. Those little mundane tasks makes him happy.


He has a lot of earthly houses. Although it’s strange and I suppose it seems not very strong, it’s quite cheap and yet it’s beautiful. Yeah, because of lots of house so the big problem with him is he doesn’t know which house that he should choose to sleep at night. I think it’s so funny, right?Well, that is his lesson he wants to share with everyone. He wants everyone to have a easy, simple life. He also wants to give a source of inspiration to everybody that “Life is easy and don’t worry too much about life”.


For me, I think I’m not brave enough to get a ordinary life like him right now because I am still young, I don’t know clearly the benefit of normal life. I still feel there are some difficult things somewhere around me.
Yeah, that’s all and how about you, man? Do you want to be a normal person like him? If yes, just take a plane ticket to Thailand right now and give up everything you have to meet him and learn how to start a normal life. Don’t worry about Hama and your students who are learning IELTS here, they are still Ok.
