Embrace What You Have

Love it!

Every morning I wake up in my own bed and think about what I have, which is  two dogs, a beautiful wife, and an amazing family that is always there.  I use to always say, I don’t have this or that and I want this and that. In this life with flashing commercials, friend’s pictures on Facebook, etc, we forget sometimes what we have. That’s why every morning before I get up, I look around my room to see what I have and remember what is waiting for me.

Lately there is too much talk about not having this, the money, the car, whatever it may be. Everything that you can buy is just in the end worthless if you look at it, if you can afford it and then get it now, by all means go out have a blast if you are response. Don’t buy things because you think it looked great on Beyonce so it has to look great on you.. (note her dress probably cost $500) Just cause your friend got a brand new sports car because they could afford doesn’t mean you and your family of five have a need or use for it.

Truth is no matter who you are, you will always want something either from the past, the store, love, friends, etc. It’s loving what you have at the moment that makes life so great! Sure you can have million dollars, a supermodel wife or baseball star husband. But the trick is if you want stuff like that you need to work very hard for it. Also, once you get it, you may not want it.

Many times we focus on what we don’t have and not what we do have. Today, I want you to stop saying and THINKING about what you don’t have. Start noticing what you have. Hate your job? Be thankful you have one, many other would kill for that right now! Hate the government, make a positive stand by becoming involved in politics. Want a million dollars? Find ways to work hard and set a realistic timeline on when you can reach that million mark. But for right now, take a deep look at your life and notice what you have. You will be surprised how lucky you truly are.

Embracing your life is key in this Savage World; that you are no longer just living in, but beginning to own!
