One day I looked in my refrigerator and cabinets to realize I had no food; needless to say I had to go grocery shopping. Suddenly, when I started to fill my refrigerator and cabinets a sense of victory started to overwhelm me. It was at that point I felt blessed… because I had food to fill my house, which I bought with my own money. This idea is simple and may seem silly however, it was vital I realize this energy and acknowledge it because not everyone has that privilege.
I shared my story to say this… be thankful for what you do have. I am sure everyone can list the things they do not have but at the end of the day you still do not have those things, so do not focus on what you do not have. Rather, think about all that you do have (family, life, job, food, love, shelter etc) even if your not in the best situation remember someone has it worst and at the end of the day you still can be thankful and count your blessing.
