Enjoy what you have, when you have it.

I try to always have a “glass is half full” kind of view on life.

I try to always be grateful for ALL of the immense blessings God has put in my life.

But that does not mean I do not have bad days. I have bad days, everyone has bad days. Right?

Car accident at the worst time (is there a best time to get into a car accident?), a death in the family, a broken bone, a bill you have to pay late, a heel breaking, a job you did not get, your kids ruining your new couch….

You know the drill.

There will always be something that can ruin your day,

But next time that happens maybe think to yourself, “Ok this sucks, but, what has gone right today”

I mean face it people, you have so much going for you that you probably take for granted.

You have both arms and legs! You have a roof over your head, a place to shower with hot water and go to the bathroom, food in your fridge, a job to provide for yourself.

There are people out there that aren’t sure where their next meal is going to come from, or who don’t have shoes on their feet, or have health problems.

There is probably always going to be someone out there who has it worse than you.

I am not saying you are not allowed to have bad days. That’s ok. It happens to everyone.

But maybe next time something unfortunate in your life happens, look around and take in all that is going right.

It may help.
