As I grow older, there is one thing I’ve realized to be absolutely imperative.
Don’t forget to count your blessings.
We are all so wrapped up in a world where every corner you turn you are reminded of things you do not possess, qualities you do not have, the silver spoon you were never born with, the rainbow that never had your name on it. Too bad that within all these things that you do not have, you drown out the voices of the talents, qualities, gifts that you do own. And ironically, you always have what you need to get through the day, make it matter. Count your blessings. It is sad that you do not see the myriad people who envy where you are at and you throw it all away for a feigned sense of independence within your delusional world.
