I can never stress enough about being thankful.
I've been on two sides where the pendulum swings and here's my take on it, if you want a shitty life, then keep complaining, but if you want a life that's worth living, keep thanking..keep thanking everything that has happened to you good or bad.
It always helps to be optimistic about everything. Even when met with an accident you can say hey, worst things could have happened AND you could say this is a good lesson for me to always be cautious on the road. Or you broke up with someone you loved, you can either curse the situation or be thankful and say that it wasn't meant to be and thank God because it is paving the way for you to be with someone who is best deserving of you.
It's kind of like counting your blessings. You can thank your lucky stars for the recent promotion you got, or the BMW you're driving in, and you can also think the little things like the air that you breathe and the safe country that you live in, and being able to see the faces of your loved ones everyday.
A lot of people in the world would die to have the things or people we sometimes take for granted.
As for me, I'm thankful for the air that I breathe, the loving family, friends and boyfriend that I have. Thank you for being in my space and making me better!
WHAT I LIVE BY
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
