Do you ever feel like you don’t have the right to complain about anything, or even feel bad about upsetting situations in your life when you look around you and see others suffering worse problems? I hate where we’re living at the moment. No space, no yard, no place to go to vent stress…but I have a home, a roof over my head. We have food, water. There are people in Puerto Rico who no longer have homes and none of the things so many of us take for granted. These are matters I look at and say to myself “count your blessings and shut up” because my probs seem so insignificant to those others are suffering through.
I suppose it’s one’s outlook that makes the difference? I try very hard to have the right outlook, but usually have to remind myself to actually *have* the proper attitude. When things are bad, always remember someone out there has it worse. And when things seem insurmountable, remember that there are people out there who are defeating the odds. Then use this to put your life in perspective.
Blessings and white light to all the people affected by the last few hurricanes. May you receive the things you need and may the Lord rattle the brains of those in charge of supplies so the people who need them receive them ASAP.
