Remember as your head hits the pillow tonight that there is someone out there wishing and praying for all the things that you have and take for granted.
You might not have everything you want, but you still have way more than a lot of people around the world.
The next time you start to complain or to fall into the envy trap, remember that there are people who don’t have nearly as much as you who are way more content.
The old saying remains true– when you give thanks and practice gratitude, it makes what you have enough. You won’t get caught up in the futile race to find peace through the accumulation of stuff.
So give thanks for what you have and be generous to those who don’t have as much as you. Be one of the radical few who don’t feel the need to keep up with those proverbial Joneses but are satisfied with what they have.
I think that covers it for this Thursday, December 7, 2016.
