Once upon a time, there was a Chinese farmer who lost a horse that ran away.
That evening all the neighbours came around and said “That’s too bad.”
And the farmer said “Maybe.”

The next day the horse came back and brought seven wild horses with it.
That evening all the neighbours came around and said “That’s great.”
And the farmer said “Maybe.

The next day his son was attempting to tame one of these horses. While riding it, he was thrown off and broke his leg.
That evening all the neighbours came around and said “That’s too bad.”
And the farmer said “Maybe.”

The next day the conscription officers came round looking for people for the army. They rejected his son because he has a broken leg.
That evening all the neighbours came around and said “That’s great.”
To which the farmer said again “Maybe.”

The moral of the story is; it is really impossible to tell whether anything that happens is good or bad. Because you never know what will be the consequences of the misfortune or you will never know the consequences of good fortune.

What’s this got to do with snacks? Nothing other than our philosophy of living Happier, Healthier, Greener. This story is a great reminder that one can find happiness in each moment if you cease to judge that moment whether it is good or bad.
