“When driving down the road of life rarely do you know how good you have it, until you see it in the rear-view mirror.
Which is not to suggest that you should look back now, but to remind you that where you are today is more awesome and amazing than you probably realize.
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
Appreciation is something that many people fail to express. I guess the feeling of entitlement overrides that need to express your appreciation for what you already have. As long as you have a roof over your head, food on the table and clothing on you, you are probably richer than 75% of the population. If you have over 5000 dollars available at any given time, you are probably richer than 92% of the population. The image below will give you a better understanding to what i really mean.
So, are you going to be complaining about anything now? I don’t think so. It is important to look back at times and open your eyes and learn to be grateful. All of what you have can disappear in an instant. Never take anything for granted. You may think it is not enough, which may be the case, but just imagine how others less fortunate than you, seeing how wealthy you are with the things you are complaining about daily. Life is too short to not be grateful. Wanting more shows energy that you can do better, but the time is now to live your life, NOT after you reach your goals. One most important thing, never give up on your health as it will give up on you.
