If you are feeling down, make sure you start to think about all of the good, wonderful things in your life. Count your blessings and cherish the positive joys that make your life worth living.
Here are some life gifts to ponder that others may not have:
- You are alive and healthy
- You have family members who care about you and help you succeed
- You have nice neighbors
- You have a place to live and a comfortable bed
- You have a car or truck that works and drives well
- You have some money or available credit
- You have a job and a career
- You have a spouse or life partner
- You have a child or children
- You have wonderful pets
- You have a garden with flowers
There are so many choices in life and so many roads to go down. One decision at some point can lead to many other choices and life opportunities.
It is easy to think about how your life could have been easier or better if you had done things differently in the past. But you can never know for sure that you would be happier if you had made those choices.
One choice in life often leads to all kinds of other choices. Maybe you could have purchased many shares of technology stocks when they were cheap and you could have held onto them for many years, and then your financial wealth would have been great. But there is no way to tell if that would have let you to a greater life.
You don’t know for sure that all of your decisions are bad or good, because so much of life is about going somewhere and making the best of it. Life is about learning lessons and working hard, trying your best and not giving up, and being resilient when life is difficult.
Make sure to reach out to the wonderful people in your world who love you and care for you. Make sure others know that you love them and are there for them. Give support to those in your household.
People often feel unhappy and unloved, and they worry that they cannot make it in life. Financial worries and personal problems can overwhelm any of us. So make sure you give as much love as you take, and try to give a little more.
