Gratitude

I’ve been doing much reflection about my life, what I have and don’t have, the things I want and the things I can obtain.  This video made me stop and think about how fortunate I am.  It’s often difficult to see all the blessings we receive on a daily basis.  Moreover, it’s easy to overlook the magnificent things we have and take for granted, rather than cherishing them every second we can.  It’s easy to get trapped in a cycle of desperation, thinking only about what we don’t have, rather than focusing our energy towards positive things.  If we only stop and think about all the great things in our lives, and appreciate the things and the people by our side, we can truly start to live a happier life.  We often seek perfection, but we forget to appreciate the abundance of it surrounding us…

  1. Reminds me of my ex. I used to take for granted all the good times we had. We would get together as often as he could because he was busy with school a lot and I failed to realize the importance of that over a relationship. So, instead of enjoying our time together I made both of our lives a living hell and complained and complained over and over and I'd get jealous and be angry . . . when in reality I was just happy to have a kiss and a night together. He always tried his best and I never got to thank him.

    Luckily, my ex taught me to appreciate everything now, no matter how small it is. Relationships, because of him, will be much better and I won't take for granted anymore when someone gives me their time, affection and relationship. Hope he will realize this . . .
