A story about the value of envy: The head of colors
This is the incredible story of a very unique child. He always wanted what he did not have: the toys of his companions, the clothes of his cousins, the books of his parents ... and he became so envious, that even the hairs on his head were envious. One day it turned out that one of the hairs on the crown woke up green, and the other hairs, seeing it so special, felt so envious that they all ended green. The next day, one of the hairs on his forehead got blue, and when he saw it, all the other hairs were blue again. And so, one day and another, the boy's hair changed color, carried by the envy that all his hair felt.
Everyone loved his hair colored, except for himself, he was so envious that he wanted to have hair like other children. And one day, he was so angry about it, that he pulled his hair out with anger. A thin hair could not hold the pull and was released, falling to the ground in a soft flight ... and then, the other hairs, feeling envy, were also released, and in a minute the boy had been bald, and his face Surprise seemed like a bad joke.
After many tears and rages, the child understood that everything had been the result of his envy, and decided that from then on he would try to enjoy what he had without paying attention to the others. Trying to enjoy what he had, he found his head smooth and bright, without a single hair, and took the opportunity to turn it into his particular canvas.
From that day he began to paint beautiful colored paintings on his bald head, which everyone liked so much, that over time he became an original artist famous throughout the world.
