I won’t complain

What I have been telling myself is this.

I am thankful for what I have.

We tend to focus on what we DON’T have.
I always do that.

Looking at my friends’ Facebook posts,
I feel jealous that they have what I don’t have.

Looking at things that I want to buy and realizing that I don’t have any money to spend for fun,
I feel disappointed.

But if I look around,

I have a place to live.
I have Internet to entertain myself.
I have a good phone to connect with people I love.
I have lots of cloths to wear.
I have shoes to wear.

I have bags to carry things.
I have health that some people really wish to have.

So… I won’t complain.
I am fortunate.
