See how many are better off than you are, but consider how many are worse.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

It never hurts to look at those who are better off than you are. It gives you a list of goals to attain. Just don’t become envious of them. It just brings you discouragement to think that you don’t have all that you want. When you feel that envy is winning the battle, stop and take a look at those less fortunate than you. You may not know them personally but they exist. The homeless, the aged, the ill, those without family, those who have been abused. The list goes on and on. You are, in fact, in a very good place.  Take a moment or two to be thankful.

Thank you, God, for this good life and forgive us if we do not love it enough.
Garrison Keillor

 

 

I was doing my nightly stumbling and had a really neat page shared with me. A cartoon character was saying he didn’t want to live on this planet anymore. That comment was followed by numerous pictures of absolutely beautiful places I would love to see. The final frame was this same character saying he wanted to live forever. Life is often not what we want it to be but there are so many good and worthwhile reasons to enjoy life.  Next time you’re depressed and ready to quit, take a few minutes to look at the beauty that surrounds us, to think of all the things you would like to do yet, to remember all those who love you.
