I’ve found that one of the ways to keep pressing on in life is to learn how to be more thankful. It’s so easy to take things for granted cos’ our eyes are always set on shiny things in life. The odd thing about the human condition is that we never truly appreciate what we have until it’s gone. Oddly enough, the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence.
Deep down inside I suspect we are ungrateful creatures; conditioned by the world to always want something more. It explains why all of us are always looking for something more and we’re never truly content. Why? Because always compare ourselves with others and end up wanting what they have too. The quest for the “missing” in life keeps going on & on. Will it ever end?
If you think about it hard enough no matter what your circumstances are or what you’re “missing” today; I’m sure there’s gotta be more than one good thing in your life now that you can appreciate more. It could be a friend that you have, it could be that PS3 sitting underneath your TV in the living-room; or it could just be something simple like having good health.
Stop. Think hard. Think different. Take a minute to be thankful today. Nuff’ said.
For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.
