I feel like so many people are so ungrateful. It is so easy to complain and point out everything you think is wrong with your life. So easy to be petty and be angry at people and at the world. But there are always people who have it way worse than you. People who would not know what to say if they had everything you had and probably cry tears of joy.
I think that we need to reevaluate everything we have and just simply be thankful to be blessed with another day of life and a roof over our heads. Something as simple as having multiple meals to eat everyday, we so easily take for granted. I sometimes feel bad when I reject a meal because I say I don’t like it because I know someone out there is starving and would love nothing more than the meal I just refused to eat.
It’s really crazy to think about how fortunate you are compared to other people. There are so many things that I am thankful for that I just don’t say it enough. I am extremely blessed and it makes me sad to think about how much I can complain about little things when there are people who find ways to be happy with what little they have.
I feel selfish at times. I have so much. I don’t say thank you enough. I’m quick to look at what’s wrong. But I do realize that I am blessed. I try to appreciate all the opportunities I’ve been given and take full advantage of them. That’s like my way of saying thank you. Making something of myself. Using my time productively. Maybe that’s why I’m such a busy body. Maybe that’s why I feel like I always have to be doing something. I just don’t want to waste the opportunity.
So from the bottom of my heart, to anyone who has ever given me anything or helped with anything, thank you. Thank you for believing in me enough to provide me with whatever that was and believe that I have definitely tried my best not to put it to waste.
