There are moments in your life when you feel life is seemingly unfair. For some reason, we happen to forget how blessed we are and complain about things that are meant to be blessings.
Moments you have to wash the dishes
We all love to eat, but when it’s time to wash the dishes, everyone else disappears. Why do moments like this seem to be such a big old task? Instead of ranting your way through the sink, think of it as a blessing. Don’t you know how blessed are you to be able to wash dishes? Almost 795 million people are starving around the world and here you are trying to complain about how you always have to do the dishes. Real talk here, stop your rants and enjoy the moments you have to wash the dishes.
Moments you ran out of money
The moment you realize that you don’t have enough money to go out with friends. Ugh! These moments are also one of the worst feelings. But hey, you didn’t really mean “no money” as in “zero balance” right? What do we mean? Well, have to say, “I don’t have money” is more of an expression today than a reality. The fact that you are reading this is because you have a laptop, desktop, electricity or a phone with you, that is as good as money when you decide to sell it. Sometimes you are also to blame for running out of cash, so take this as a lesson. The moment you run out of money is technically just a ‘moment’ but for some people, it is a constant way of life. Going every day trying to look for ways to get money, at least even for food, is their thing. So before uttering and realizing you don’t have money, count other blessings and know you are blessed with so much more.
Moments your parents do not allow you to…
How old are you? Even if you’re not 14 years old anymore, and you’re allowed to go out without permission, we are sure you’ve struggled with this. If you’re still a teenager, then listen up. Before you wish they were not your parents, stop! Be grateful you have parents. Fine, so you still hate them? That is a serious case of ungratefulness. Even if you think they are bad parents, they still want what’s best for you.
Moments he cheated on you
If you have been cheated, then congratulations! We know it isn’t the best feeling in the world, but it isn’t also the worst. Be happy and feel blessed because you are about to experience great things. Move on and thank yourself for not ending up with him. It’s better to break it now than prolong the infidelity.
Moments you’ve failed
Moments of failure are inevitable. We face failure as much as we don’t want to. When you are in the middle of failure, don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s cliché to think of this, but you are blessed more than you know because failures make you stronger and be a better person.
Realize that moments like these, may they be simple or complicated, crazy or hurtful, are the fine prints of life. It is inevitable, and it makes our life happier and meaningful. Changing your perspective from a life of complaint to a life of gratitude will make you realize that you’re blessed more than you know.
