I have a lot to be grateful for. For the most part, I live a lifestyle full of conveniences that rival that of most of the world. I have a business that earns the employees and me a living. I live in a nice, comfortable house that I enjoy cleaning. I drive newer reliable vehicles and do not have any shortage of clean water or food. I can get on my laptop and I have access to the Internet and connect with all corners of the globe. If I want to talk to someone, I can reach in my shirt pocket, pull out my iPhone and do not have to worry about communication issues. I have access to some of the finest healthcare in the world, all at a reasonable price. In short, I essentially live a good life with a lot of freedom, safety and security.
It is easy to take these wonderful blessings for granted. In the grand scheme of things, I have more than millions or even billions of inhabitants around the world. Sadly, most do not have the basic necessities of life.
When I think about it, most inhabitants of the world do not have anywhere near what I throw away. I often forget how blessed I am and how blessed I am that I live in a country so wrought with opportunity. When things do not go my way, it is all too easy to forget how blessed I really am. Maintaining an attitude of gratitude is something I need to focus on. How about you?
Think about it, those without a place to live would love to have a house to live in, much less clean. Sadly, most homeowners gripe about cleaning their home. A person without any transportation dreams of having a car to drive, while someone who owns a car is more likely to complain about the cost of regular maintenance and unexpected repairs. I truely have much to be grateful for.
