Measure Your Life By What You Have

In case you needed your priorities reset and rebooted, this picture should just about do it.

How many of us focus on what we don’t have and take for granted what we have?

I read somewhere more than once that if you have a roof over your head, more than one change of clothes, more than one meal in the last 24 hours, access to clean water, transportation, and people who love you, you are richer than most.

In fact, you might be in the top 5% globally speaking.

Somewhere out there someone would give anything to have one of your “bad” days. Your worst days are probably better than their best days.

So if you want the cure for the disease of comparison and complaining, it’s gratitude. If you want to eliminate envy and banish bitterness, the answer is to give thanks.

Measure your life by what you have, not what you don’t.
