I wake up every morning, and my first thought is: “I’m alive, I survived another day”, and I thank god for that. I thank god for giving me the strength to live, for giving me a strong, healthy body, and for being able to talk, hear and sight. But I feel as I am one of a few who still thank God for what he has given them. People these days do not appreciate what they have. I look around, and all I see is people complaining about what they don’ have, resenting others who have more than they do, while they should be thanking God for what they do have, like the ability to speak and sight, being able to walk , and having a healthy body and a loving family. These are things that most of us have, but never really appreciate…

So, Instead of complaining about what you wish you had, be thankful for what you do have, because there are people who are living in far worse circumstances than you, and they wish they had the life that you have.

“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive- to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love-then make that day count!” ― Steve Maraboli
