In the society that we live in it is very easy to "allow" things to get to us, more and more life is becoming about money. Life is lived by the funding in your bank accounts, the ability to work your butt off to only reap the rewards once in a blue moon and if you're lucky once a year. [If you are lucky.]
I have noticed it gets harder to wake up in the morning, it is harder to want to get ready to go to work, and the traffic is only getting worse. I am so close to moving further away from work and all I can think of is, "How long am I going to be able to do this?", and fight the urge to not want to go to work.
This morning I got up, took my dog out to use the restroom and thought to myself is today a day that you finally call in for once? Is today the day that you stay in your pajamas, enjoy a cup of coffee and write the blog from the comfort of your bed?
With the weekends seemingly getting shorter and shorter and less and less getting done, I can only hope to one day have the benefit to not feel guilty about having to go to work. But even with all that life is currently throwing in my direction, I just try to think of what else makes me happy.
1. The good Lord wakes me up every morning.
2. I have someone to share the journey of life with.
3. I have a job.
4. I have a roof over your head.
5. I never go hungry.
6. I have clothes to wear.
7. I have a car.
8. I have the ability to use all 5 of my God given sense.
9. I am loved.
10. I can do anything that I set my mind to.
So with all that life has to throw at me and sometimes I get overwhelmed and frustrated, I try my best to breath and think of what life has given me and all that I have to be thankful for. You can do it all, you just don't have to do it all at once. I challenge you to look at life and any current situation differently before making the decision to be unhappy.
What do you do to remind yourself to be happy?
