WHAT WE TAKE FOR GRANTED
Have you ever stopped to really think about all of the things that you are blessed with?
Instead of looking at what you don’t have, maybe it is time to take stock of what you do have.
We live in a society of want. Always wanting more but do you really need more?
Often times, what we really need, we have, and it is those things right in front of us that we take for granted.
Imagine if you had to go without. If you were stripped of everything.
What is it that you would need first?
Perspective is an interesting thing. We live in a time where there are more and more people living in poverty, unable to meet their basic needs. More people with medical issues including 1 in 3 people in North America who suffer from mental health diagnoses, 1 in 2 people will get cancer, the exponential rise of diabetes and obesity and the list goes on.
Open your eyes and take a look around you. Even in your own backyard, there are those in need. Maybe it is time to lend a hand as often times, the best way to help yourself is to help others.
