I live my life based on gratitude
I live my life based on gratitude yes! I see every situation as an opportunity to be grateful. growing up wasn't easy not because we were very poor but because my dad is a disciplinarian that won't want his kids to have everything in abundance which sincerely, i used to hate him for but when i got older i realised that he did it for the best. i have no regrets about those hard days infact im grateful that i had those days because thats is the only reason why today i can survive through every situation.
If i wake up in the morning healthy, and I all my family and friends are alive I'm always filled with gratitude. i try to keep it simple, maybe its easy for me based on how i was engineered or brought up! but i really dont want too many things. if I have good food, light in my house, decent clothes and my work..I'm satisfied, I don't want the best car, the best clothes, the best house..im grateful for what i have presently.
I'm so grateful for being alive today, what if I came as a tree ? i lost my mum last year in June, i wish i still have her here with me but again im grateful for having her till last year, im grateful her seeing me become somebody..IM GRATEFUL
If tomorrow i lost everything i have , instead of drinking myself to stupor or start thinking about suicide or anything. Im going to be grateful for having it till now and i will start all over again, also will be grateful for the opportunity to start all over again.
Stop complaining about everything, stop expecting anything from anyone.
I think what i have been able to do and that has helped me is that I took the time to understand myself..I know my weakness, i know what im good at..and i treat people with empathy, before i expect anything from anyone i put into consideration what they want and what they need what they stand to gain what I am asking of them. Dont be selfish !
So today what I'm trying to say to you is, you should be grateful for every situation you are but that doesn't mean you should stay there. But stop complaining about the government, your family, your friends, your boss every time when you have never looked the situation through their own perspective and situation? and ask yourself what have you done to help ?
This is just my 2cent!
