A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE
For the last few months I've been trying to keep my attitude positive. Instead of complaining about things I can not change, I try and look at the bright side. I find when I stop and think about things they become a little more clear. Here are a few complaints I've muttered in the last couple months:
Complaint #1: I hate my job!
Reality Check: I could be unemployed and not know how I was going to pay my bills
Complaint #2: I'm not married.
Reality Check: I could be in a loveless or abusive marriage
Complaint #3: There is nothing in the refrigerator that I feel like eating.
Reality Check: I could be digging through the garbage looking for scraps of leftover food
Complaint #4: I wish I lived in a nicer house or drove a nicer vehicle
Reality Check: I could be homeless without a vehicle to drive at all.
Complaint #5: I wish I didn't have to get up so early.
Reality Check: I could not be waking up at all.
I guess if you look at the bright side, our problems don't really look that big. I know I could be a lot worse off, so today I'm just going to be thankful!
