I was listening to a cd the other day when the speaker said be grateful for what you have and work with it. After reflection I thought that it was a very true and profound statement.
How many of us ignore what we have to live in the past and the future. In our rush to do this we ignore what we have and keep on yearning for the “good old days” or “if only I had this I could”. The reality is that we all have a set of tools that we can use to make our lives the way that we want. By yearning and wishing we ignore these resources and we end up with a life that is not what we envisioned.
Take the time to take stock of what you have and be grateful for what you have. Be aware and grateful for the things in your life. Above all be grateful for the challenges because it is only through challenges that we grow. When you know what you want in life and are grateful for the resources that you have you can move forward, move forward to removing the blocks in your life that prevent you from having the life that you want.
