If I have learned anything in my life and spiritual journey, it is to always be grateful. It is such an easy concept yet, so many aren’t grateful. Often times we play the victim of life, and complain about all the awful things that have happened.
I know I used to be this way, I would complain about everything. I would say it was everyone else’s fault for what was happening to me. I would do all of these things yet, I would rather sit in misery than take the effort to change anything. Then one day I was complaining about everything, when I actually started to annoying myself. Then it hit me, no wonder I have a negative life. I have done nothing but put negativity out into the world, of course it is going to come back to me. It was crazy how in that moment everything became so clear to me. How everyone saw me and how I was treating myself. That is when I took the effort to change.
I had become so used to complaining it became a second nature, and it was hard to brake. It has been quite some time since then and I complain very rarely now. When I do, I think to myself, well that was stupid. Why am I complaining? Am I trying to convince myself of something? I just stop and put everything back into perspective. There is always someone worse off than me, and me complaining about something petty is ridiculous.
There is always a reason to be grateful, even if it doesn’t seem like it. Even in darkness light can be found, you simply look for it. The way I see it everything that happens to us for a reason. It molds us into the people we are today. We can either go through life playing the victim or we can be proud of who we are. The choice is ours alone.
