Be greatful

I saw a blind elderly couple travelling on the bus, aided by their teenage grandchildren. Watching them interact as they got off the same stop as I did, made me instantaneously feel blessed and greatful for all that I have in my life. Sometimes it takes something little and simple to jolt you into reality to appreciate and realise what you do have in life, and just how fortunate you are! We do take alot of things for granted in life, and it's only when we put ourselves in someone else's less fortunate situation do we sometimes realise how blessed we actually are.
We all have our gripes, moans and groans, and at the end of the day after the "huge" disaster has occurred, we often forget that it ever happened, or wonder why we made a big deal out of something so little!
Life is too short to be expending energy stressing about the little things, because the big things will end up running you dry!! We often forget just how good we have it. Watching someone appreciate the little that they have without any whinging can teach us so much.
Before you complain about your studies, job, spouse or "material stuff", realise how fortunate you are to be in that place and what got you there :)

                                           HAVE AN AWESOME DAY !!
