Is it just me or does this election seems to be pretty crazy and very divisive?
A conversation today on Facebook about how bad our system is got me thinking….. Are things so bad? Really?
Don’t we live in a country that even the poorest are in the top 1% of the world?
We live in a time that everyone has food and shelter if he or she chooses…. Remember that A third of the world lives on less than $2 per day.
Sure we can complain about everything that is wrong with this country and this world, or we can choose to be grateful for a wonderful life IF WE CHOOSE to be grateful. Because ultimately it is what’s in your head and your perceptions that create your reality.
I just want to say I am grateful for my beautiful daughters who can go outside and are safe, that they know how much they are loved. I appreciate my family (the crazy ones and all) and the friends I have met over the years. Moreover, I look forward to meeting so many more friends.
So yes, our political system and the world can seem like a mess if you let the news consume you or we can focus on being grateful for what we do have and strive to continue to improve and learn.
We get so caught up with all the negative news that we forget that we are the ones who determine our destiny. I want you to know that I am grateful for everything I have and hope this message can take our focus off what’s wrong with the world to what is right and what can we be grateful for? Money does not bring happiness, gratitude does.
Here is a great article on being happy.
