Yesterday, after reading a book, it got me thinking. And as always; I have to share my thoughts😊. My thought it mainly about gratitude; or being grateful which is something I neglect. As an individual, or a girl😅 I realise that I complain in a way because I always want more than I have. Typical! I definitely don’t work, and as a teenager, I depend on my parents. They provide everything I could possibly need; but well, I’m human and I want millions stacked in my bank account so I can waste it😂 But after what I read, I realised that I get basically everything I want and I don’t show gratitude. Sometimes the money I use in a month, some people don’t use that amount in three months. The way I live in school, most students don’t live that way. My place in school is basically my second house as it’s well furnished and huge. Most families don’t even live in a place like that. I’ve had people jokingly say they want to live with me or they want to meet my parents.
I could go on and on about everything I have and how blessed I am. But, being blessed is one thing; and showing gratitude is another. I don’t have to hug my parents all the time or do all that stuff that feels really weird to me😅 But I realise that I have to show appreciation at some point because on one hand, I want more; which kind of feels selfish. But on the other hand, there are so many people who wish they were in my shoes. I can’t possibly imagine my life without my parents as they’re my support and everything. But I have to learn to be grateful; I guess that’ll be my new year resolution. Or something I’ll just keep in mind because I don’t do new year resolution stuff😅
At this point, anything could happen but I have to be grateful because it can be money, clothes, food, health, or some irrelevant stuff; but I have it. And at the end, I’m still alive; that’s what truly matters. Are you grateful for what you have no matter how little it may be?
