There are often times in our lives when things don't go our way. We might blame ourselves, God, our parents, our siblings, our friends.... ya get the picture, but we need to step back and look at all of the GOOD we HAVE in our lives. Things will not always turn out the way we hope, but you need to remember that it all happens for a reason. Although we may not know what that reason is at the moment, life has a funny way of working itself out. God sees the entire painting, we only see a small corner. Trust Him.
Things to be thankful for...
your family, some people have no one to call after a bad day.
your friends, some people do not have any true friends.
the house you live in, some people live under a bridge.
the bed you sleep in, some people sleep on the street.
your education, some people cannot afford to go to school.
your job, there are people who are unemployed.
your freedom, there are other countries where people are told how to live their lives.
the food that you eat, there are people that go without eating for days.
the ability to run, some people are born without legs.
your health, people die from cancer everyday.
your eyes, some people cannot see the beauty of a sunset.
your vehicle, some people have to rely on others for transportation.
Now that is just a general list of things I thought of, but each and every one of us has a special and unique list of "things to be thankful for". I challenge you to sit down and write out every thing you are truly thankful for in your life, then when you have a difficult day, come back to that list and you'll realize, your life isn't so bad after all :).
Be Sassy. Be Sweet. Be You.
Classy, sassy, but oh so sweet!
