Great topic. Feel like that’s what’s lost on a lot of people today, folks spend too much time worrying about what they don’t have….and not enough time being thankful for what they have.
I have a lot. I’m still alive and in good health, my parents are still alive. That in itself should be a mic drop. I have a high probability (99%) of being promoted soon, which will come with an entirely different pay structure and incentives package. If not I still love what I do. My training and diet are on point. My truck is paid off. My nieces and nephews are on the right track and killing it in school, expect some big time admittance letters to be rolling in. I’m single, and there are lots of ladies looking to mingle. I still have most of my hair (aside from the very top). I still keep in touch with my long time friends and overall my family is doing well. Recently I was fortunate enough to make a donation to a local youth sports program that will help area kids participate. It’s a blessing in itself that I can do that.
For me, everyday starts with a reminder to be grateful for life’s gifts and thankful for everything I have. All of the above isn’t a brag, it’s just that I know how fortunate I am and thank God for the blessings.
