Everyone has their own issues. That’s true.
Some of them are big some of them small. Anyway, your issues they are yours, so naturally you’ll feel they are bigger and worse than everybody else’s.
The grass is always greener on the other side
People often say that, but that’s not true. It just looks greener, but it’s not really greener. It’s Fake.
Sometimes we tend to forget to be gratitude for all the good things in life instead of seeing the bad things only. Don’t search for what you’re missing in life, search for what you already have or achieved. Sometimes it’s not that easy.
Movie nights in our house are usually on Sundays. The whole family sits and watches a family movie. We choose a movie that both adults and kids enjoy to watch together. Lately we saw the movie Annie. We loved it very much. If you didn’t see it yet, go and watch it.
The movie summary is this: A foster girl named Annie lives with her mean drunk foster mom. She sees her life changes when business tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly veiled campaign move and takes her in.
What the summary didn’t say is that this Annie is a very happy girl, who lives with other foster girls at a foster home and looks for her biological parents with no success. Until she runs into that rich guy who wanted to get elected for NY mayorship and (accidentally) saved her life and decided to be her foster home.
Sometimes we forget to say thank you for what we have. We have good health, loving family, home, food on the table, toys and games, cloths. Not everybody have these things. Even though Annie didn’t have, she was still happy with whatever she had.
We need to remember to be happy with what we have and appreciate it. Some people don’t have it.
Gratitude is very important. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
Don’t forget that.
