Never take what you have for granted

Friday, November 9, 2012

Appreciate all of the things you have; because somewhere out there, there is someone who has less than you or nothing at all. During Hurricane Sandy I learned a lot about life and how no one should take it for granted. I had a lot of time to think about my life and reevaluate myself, since I didn't have any power. During this time with no power I realized that I have taken advantage of it and I didn't really realize that until now.

Whether it was leaving the computer on or plugged in when I wasn't using it or maybe getting upset when I didn't have anything to watch on TV ( a lot of people may not have a TV to watch stuff). The point is everyone should be grateful for watch they because life is too short. "Life is not always greener on the other side" There are more important things in life and I understand that. I am not saying that I take or took things for granted, but I learned that there are so much more. I will admit that I took electricity for granted at times, but not anymore. I was freaking out because I didn't have power for almost two weeks, then I stopped and thought about people who don't even have a home. I appreciate life so much more and the little things that may seem so small are the things that are big and matter most.

I hope you enjoyed reading this!

  1. I love this post. You're right, we should be thankful everyday for what we have and stop complaining for the things we don't have. The mere fact that we wake up this morning should be enough for us to be happy and be thankful for this life that we have. Very wonderful post, girl!

  3. We don't know how good we have it until we don't.. I have been blessed with so much in life and I try to give to those who aren't.

  7. Amen! Couldn't have said it better myself. As a jersey girl myself it was hard when sandy hit, but I can truly say that it was a blessing as it bought my family together even more. It was like living like the little house in the prairie days. Not sure if you know what show I'm talking about cause I know I'm a bit older than you. LOL anyways, great post girl. xo
