Gratitude

In case you are reading this post you should thank God for seeing yet another day and for his blessings of life and good fortune. Yes, you read that right, “good fortune” for even living itself is good fortune. It doesn’t matter the circumstance in which you find yourself in, all that matters is that you are alive and therefore have the chance to make whatever it is that is troubling you or your mind right. A friend of mine once told me that one should always be grateful in every situation they find themselves in whether good or bad, for whatever it is, it could have been worse. If you put this statement into perspective you would realize how much it makes sense.


You are complaining that you had one meal yesterday, ask yourself how many people went without even a single meal; you are complaining about your crappy job, ask yourself how many people have no jobs; you are complaining over lack of finances, well, at least you have the strength to complain, a strength you can use to figure out how to earn some extra cash, there are people fighting for their lives hoping that God gives them the strength to at least sit up on their hospital beds… I could go on and on but I hope you get the point…

Whatever “nasty” situation you find yourself in be grateful for it could have been worse.. Now don’t get me wrong here, I am not saying that you relish those situations which you don’t desire to have in your life, you can always pray, hope and even work for a better situation. All am saying is that you accept a situation for what it is and be grateful for it because without the bad situation you would not appreciate the good coming into your life.
