When was the last time that you felt to be doomed to live a life of scarcity and inadequacy ?
When was the last time you aspired to live someone’s life ?
To want every wish of yours to be fulfilled.
Looking at those happy faces often put you in a pensive mood.
Why bad things have to happen to me, I’m ill fated.
Some people no matter what they have are never content with there life, like whenever your extravagant wishes are fulfilled you have a higher list to be met with.We complain and fuss over everything in life.
Aspired for something but could not achieve it?
Struggled day in and day out but still couldn’t get it?
Her parents give her everything she asks for, but mine turn a deaf ear to all my demands.
There are no reasons for me to be happy . I wish I had a better life.
From food to work , from family to friends ,we complain about everything in our life.
These are some of the phases that even I have gone through. But as I grew I realized that
there are a lot many things to be grateful for.A multitude of things to be thankful for.
Remember whenever something like this happens with you just close your eyes and thank God for being intact and complete in yourself,
for being able to see,read and listen ,
Walk,run,jump and climb
Speak ,express, eat and drink
Thank him for every morsel that enters your mouth
Thank him for giving you the ability to love,being loved,to be compassionate, to understand,
Thank him for the heart beating , for the lungs breathing, for the mind working
Thank him for the roof on your head. Be thankful for everything you have .
Have empathy for those who don’t have one of these.Empathy is a lot better than sympathy.
Even after not having one of these , they are a lot more happier than we are.
Remember ,there are people who don’t have the proper resources to learn read and write.
In a country at civil war,there are some who live in the constant threat of being attacked or bombed .
There are people across the world dying from epidemic..
And here you are fussing over things you already have.
For a moment just give up all the could ,woulds ,might and should.
And just focus on WHAT IS
Replace the “I want” with “I have”
Bring the sense of wholeness and satisfaction , and try to bring that through to your life right now.
And you will have a lot of things to be grateful for..
Don’t miss out on what you have with what more you wish to have.
