I just want to take a moment to address a personal pet peeve of mine. One thing that really troubles me throughout my journey of life, is to see people who are so incredibly blessed and don't realize it.
Some people wouldn't recognize a blessing if it literally came and slapped them in the face! (Ugh)
I get it. I understand that we all have bad days, or moments in life where we struggle and it becomes difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But often times if you decided to shift your focus, and start to focus on all of which you do have in comparison to what you don't... you may be surprised how your attitude may change.
For example; instead of complaining about how much you don't like your job, be grateful that you have a place of employment. Instead of complaining because your not a millionaire yet, enjoy whatever you have in the mean time (money isn't everything). Stop complaining about how much your family/friends get on your nerves, and praise God that you have them in the first place. There are so many people out there that wish they had a best friend or mom to argue with (as crazy as that sounds).
There are way too many of us just navigating through life, and missing the blessings they have on a daily basis. People become so obsessed with negativity, that they become blind to positive notions. Don't be this person.
I know we all like to think that we are going to live forever, until we are 190 years old. But the harsh reality is that some people's forever is 20-30 years or less!
If that isn't enough to make you appreciate everyday, I'm not sure what will.
If someone told you this was your last week. How would you live differently?
Love like never before. Appreciate the little things; like health, relationships, clothes, and food. Shifting your focus will change your life.
Take it from me. RANT OVER!
