Not so much of my fortunate position have what I do, but, more so to be thankful for just LIFE!
My mind is always in a GLOBAL mindset. I think of those with less, those who suffer, those who would give anything to have what I take for granted. It's probably for this reason that I live my life in the manner I do. Respectful to others, compassionate, and reaching out with a helpful hand ( in whatever form it may be).
I am thankful for many things, I share just a few.....
I am thankful to be a dad to an amazing, intelligent (smart mouthed), little four year old girl.
I am thankful to have been born in a country where I may openly criticize the things I do not agree with.
I am thankful to live in a country where with some hard work , and perseverance I can follow my dreams.
I am thankful that I live in a country where the world is at my doorstep ( or more accurately past the TSA checkpoint ! : )
I am thankful for all the things that have happened to me good or bad, because they have brought me to where I am.
this list is always ongoing, but I'll stop there....
See there are many things we can let hinder us or weigh us down, but in the grander scheme of things there is no point to living that way. If you are reading this from a nice cozy office, on your couch, shoot even on your toilet, than you are already in a much greater position than a lot of the world.
Don't WASTE your life on the things or people that don't matter, fill it with joy, and with moments that are worthy of the amazing person you are or can be.
And if you find yourself in a position to give big or small, please GIVE !
small acts become BIGGER once multiplied !
I am genuinely thankful, and I hope you are as well : )
