Life Is a Gift

Just want to share this meaningful passage with everyone – whether you’re breezing through life or facing obstacles now. Life is a gift. Embrace it.

Today…

Before you say an unkind word
… think of someone who can’t speak.

Before you complain about the taste of your food
… think of someone who has nothing to eat.

Before you complain about your husband or wife
… think of someone who’s longing for a companion.

Before you complain about life
… think of someone who died too early on this earth.

Before you complain about your children
… think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.

Before you argue about your dirty house someone didn’t clean or sweep
… Think of the people who are living in the streets.

Before you whine about the distance you drive
… think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job
… think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

But,

Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another
… remember that not one of us is without sin.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down
… put a smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still breathing.

And when there is life,
… there is always hope.

Look at life as 'half-full'

Dear poppy15,

It’s human nature to complain and not feel contented with what we have. But we can train our mind to look at life as "half full" instead of "half empty", and we will definitely be happier. 🙂

thanks for sharing. a great article. very true, we, as humans, often take things in life for granted. we are always comparing & complaining & never once really sit down to think about what we do or say…. until something terrible happens… but by then its too late…

human nature, i guess & that’s what we are & always will be.
