To be honest today hasn’t been the best day. Exhausting in some ways but most of all tiering. I’m absolutely ready to fall asleep any minute now but before I do I wanted to share my blessings instead of my complains. Because there is truly so much we can be grateful for each and every day.
When you see your child smiling
The best feeling in the world is when you see your baby smiling back at you, and you haven’t even done anything, just shown them your face. It melts my heart right down to the ground.
We often take our health for granted and only realize how lucky we are when we get a cold or get sick. There are so many people suffering from so much more and it can be a daily battle to get to the next day. So being well and healthy is something we shouldn’t take lightly.
Food on the table
It’s amazing that we can fill up our fridge whenever we want and we only need to take a couple of steps into the kitchen to get water. Imagine struggling everyday, not knowing if you’ll find food or water the next day. We should always keep reminding ourself how blessed we are.
Family and friends
Lastly I’m grateful for my amazing friends who have supported me and been there through it all. They are less than a handful but I can truly say they have been there through it all. And my family, especially my mother, has been a huge rock for me to lean on whenever I need.
Before you complain about what you don’t have or how awful your life is, take a step back and look at the big picture. You’ll probably see that you have more than enough so count your blessings and not your complains.
