Be Grateful for a few moments. Seriously. Most of my day is filled with people screaming at me because they’ve lost some important document, or they’re stressing out because they can’t do something. On most accounts, the issue is frivolous and unimportant.

Not being all worldly, or trying to sound smart, I want to ask you guys: what’s really important in your life? Your family, your friends, your hobbies, your job? You ever catch yourself wondering how things could be so much better if you did something, or won the lottery or something? Did you ever think about the other spectrum and wonder how much worse things could possibly be?

Just something to think about before going into the weekend. Be grateful for all that you have. Because there’s plenty of those who have much less.

Yes, smiles are always free.

  1. I was thinking the same thing this morning.

    Old age is making us deep n’ stuff.

  2. I’m grateful for the many things in life I have, and all the things that I don’t. I’m grateful for the challenges the world presents me, and that those challenges are never-ending. I’m grateful for those who accept me as I am, and those who do not. I’m grateful for all, and I’m grateful for none.

    Most importantly, I’m grateful that I can derive pleasure from simple things in life. Things like watching a bird fly by and marvelling at it. And I’m grateful that as long as I can find pleasure in simple things, I don’t have to go looking for “meaning” to find happiness. Happiness is something to truly be grateful for.

    Oh, and I’m grateful for good neighbours.

  3. Booch – Nice save with that closing comment. Very classy.
