I’m aware that there will be bad days that’ll get in my way and not every day is a good day. It’s a reminder for me that bad days do exist, not only the good ones. So as much as I want to bring positivity to everyone every single day, I can’t do that. I’m being honest with myself that’s why instead of pretending to myself and others that everything is fine, I decided to be true and put what I truly feel into words.
I want to share with you all the things that I’m grateful for. Appreciating all of the good things in life can bring us happiness and contentment. Yet, sometimes, we tend to compare ourselves to others and complain about the things that we don’t have while some have it. I’m guilty that I used to be that kind of person; someone who loves to fret about everything and it annoys the people around me. I realized that it’ll not bring me to a good disposition. So, I changed my negative attitude and turned it into a positive one.
The first thing that I’m grateful for is the roof over my head. This may be just a simple thing for some of you but for me, it’s a big thing. Some don’t have any place to be called ‘home’ because the cold, dirty and dangerous street is what they only have. It must be very hard for them to live there through the pouring rain and hot sunny days. That’s why I’m glad that my Mom works very hard so we can live in a place like this comfortably.
Aside from that, I’m also thankful for the food that I eat and the clothes that I can wear. It breaks my heart to see that some people around the world don’t eat food a few times a day and don’t have clean clothes to wear. It made me realized how lucky I am that I still have something to eat and I should stop whining when I can’t eat the food that I’m craving for. And be glad about the clean clothes that I can wear every day.
And lastly but not least, I appreciate all the good people in my life right now. My family, loved ones and good friends who are with me through thick and thin. They are the reasons why I’m making myself better every single day. They serve as my inspiration to do good in life and keep me motivated by the things I do.
I hope I inspire some of you to feel blessed and thankful for all of the good things that you have in your life in the present. There are so many things that I’m grateful for and these are just some of them. And maybe soon, I can add more to my list and make a post about it.
Thank you so much for reading!
