When I read the news and learn about what people are facing in Syria and many other terror struck countries, I feel blessed. I pray to God to give peace to every soul on earth and I thank him for keeping me safe. Isn’t it a big thing to be happy about? We can actually find happiness when we stop to look at the grass and if it seems greener on the other side or our own side.
We are blessed with so many things in our life. Things that we know are there but still never acknowledge. Instead, we keep running after something new, something to excite us more, something to give us happiness. But, do we ever achieve that happiness? Even when we get what we wanted, we tend to set new goals and start running after them rather than enjoying what we achieved.
How do we make ourselves satisfied and have contentment? The key is – Appreciation. When we start to appreciate what we have, we start to feel satisfied and happy from within. Appreciating the fact that we have a beautiful family, the fact that we have enough to survive and to lead a regular life, the fact that the sun never fails to shine and give us warmth, the fact that we have a roof on our heads, the fact that we are still far better off than many others.
Let’s Appreciate Life!
