To bitch and moan about everything that is wrong in your life or everything that you don't have(or everything that someone else does have), has become nothing short of the new social standard. What ever happened to "I may not have(insert something you desire)........but, I sure am lucky that(insert something that you do have)"......? Times sure have changed, but it is due to our attitudes and outlooks on things. Do we see the good....or just the bad?
There is so much to be thankful for in this life. Most of us have eyesight, hearing, friends, family, food, entertainment, clean water, good health, shelter, and clothing.......we are so fortunate. But what do I hear? "I'm so sick of this......I'm so sick of that.......I've got it so bad......wah, wah, wah" . Listen and listen good........Suck it up. There is someone who has it much worse than you do who is out there smiling right now enjoying life and taking their hardships on the chin, while you're curled up on your armchair, pouting, and feeling sorry for yourself........ and for what?
Listen, I'm no millionarie either, but let me tell you.....I am thankful for so many things: My mom, my dad,my brother, my dogs, my health, my guitar, my wonderful readers here on www.brainshelter.com and so much more. What are you thankful for? Come on, there has to be something. Face it. If you have the physical, intellectual, or financial means to read this......you don't have it that bad. Someone else's family is getting bombarded by a hurricane as they hold on for dear life in a fragile straw hut somewhere in the Pacific Islands. So.....tonight before you go to bed, end your night with "I'm thankful for....." If you can start your morning with the same phrase. Your outlook on life will change forever, and each day will always be better than the last. Take care everyone!
See you next time!!!
