Count it a privilege that you are alive today, that you can pick up the phone, text or go through your social media accounts, and even say how you are feeling or what you are going through.
Privileges are in the little things we rarely give concern to, if any at all. How many times do you get out of bed, look at your phone, make breakfast and head out to start your day without even thinking how lucky you are? I bet they are quite many.
When we are going through hard stuff in our lives is the time we remember that our life is a privilege, but when everything is going great, we don’t even think about the privileges we have. What each of us goes through is not, and should not be a defining factor to our goal and purpose in life. When we look back at how far we have come, what we go through should really serve as a motivator to face life ahead of us.
Remember, nobody is perfect and instead of focussing on our problems, we should look at the bigger picture of things, focussing on what really matters.
The things we take for granted may just one day be taken from us, and when they are gone, we will realize how important they were in our lives.
Forever be grateful for the little things and maybe, just maybe, half your problems will be solved.
