one at a time.

One day at a time.
One thought at a time.
Trying to stay positive.

The road to figuring out yourself and life is not easy.
No one ever said it would be, but I’m determined.

I don’t want average. No. I want to be above.
I want to be in control, I don’t want to just join the flow.
Life is too short.
I’m in search of real happiness and inner peace.

I’ll get there.

 

It’s important to remember the good things in life, and to be grateful… So therefore I’ll state 10 things that I am grateful for, that happened/were possible today:

  1. I woke up
  2. I slept in a warm bed
  3. I woke up in a peaceful place, no war zone, no fear
  4. I had food to eat
  5. I had water to drink
  6. I had clothes to wear
  7. I had a mother to talk to
  8. I had friends to talk to
  9. I had time to waste
  10. I had legs to walk

Why stop there though, I am grateful that I have all daily and basic necessities such as: food, water, clothes, shower, warm bed, roof over my head and health.
I can see, hear, talk, smell, taste and feel. I have 2 legs, 2 arms, and all limbs. I can make my own food, I can go to the bathroom on my own, I can move freely, I can see the world, I can hear the bird, I can smell my morning coffee and taste it.

I’m lucky.
I’m incredible lucky, and I don’t even realize it on a daily basis. What a crime ungratefulness is… Although it is unintentional, but we all take basics for granted.

Something as simple as being able to use all your limbs, imagine not having arms, or being stuck in a wheelchair… It’s not the end of the world, no. BUT many of us have the privilege of having the freedom of mobility, and we forget – we take it for granted.

We shouldn’t.
Every day we should remember what we HAVE and what we CAN do. Not what we DONT have or what we CANT do.
No.

Focus on the positive aspect of things in life, not the negative.
Life is too short.
The mind is too complex, and changing your way of perceiving and thinking can make a huge difference.
Instead of complaining about not having milk left for your coffee – remember that you’re privileged and lucky enough to even drink coffee, you’re privileged and lucky enough to be able to go and buy more milk… To add to that, you’re so lucky that you can in fact MOVE on your own to go and get more milk, you can afford it, you have the opportunity of getting it.

It’s all a matter of perspective, and in the end that’s what life comes down to.
Your life is how you choose to see it.

You want to be happy or you want to be sad?
Start with your way of perceiving. Be positive.
