This question was a hard one for me to wrap my little brain around.
I feel like I do a pretty good job of celebrating the things that I have,
compared to the way others celebrate things they have.
But, I still feel like I'm doing a terrible job.
What does that say about the world?
Honestly, for every 100 complaints I hear a day from
friends, family, teachers, anyone, I hear maybe one celebration.
Isn't that so sad?
One thing I always say to people is 'wow, you're really pessimistic.'
And the usual response I get?
'No, I'm not, I'm just being a realist.'
Sorry, but that's not being realistic.
Yes, I understand that you don't want to be that super
optimistic person that gets let down a lot but, geez!, at
least appreciate something in life.
Everyone says they appreciate that they have a roof over their
head and food on their plate but I don't see people appreciating that
at all, I admit, I don't appreciate it as much as I should either.
I don't want to babble on about this because I think the picture
and the question have enough meaning in themselves.
One thing I have celebrated today is the fact that I'm almost done
with the semester (one more final to go!). But, more importantly,
I'm thankful that I have been given to opportunity to attend college.
So, what have you celebrated today?
I know I've posted this picture before but
the words are so powerful, especially for today's
question. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Be thankful you're here to celebrate it!
To all my Faithful Readers:
Here is a small peek inside my brain. Enjoy.
