It is that time of year again where we look back at what has past and look forward to the things yet to come.
Despite this past year, I try to look at the big picture and realize that I have so much to be thankful for, a life that many people would strive to have. This allows me to appreciate everything that I have:
Health – without health, you really can’t do anything, you can’t live life to its fullest.
Family – it is all about family, whether it be blood, through marriage or any extended family, and that includes friends who are brothers and sisters from another mother! Kids are your legacy and one of the greatest joys in life. You get to shape a person to be somebody great and help improve the world we live in.
Friends – as one blogger commented on my previous post “friends are the flowers of life”. I love this comment as it sums it up perfectly, friends are everything to me. You don’t need to speak to them all the time to know they are there.
These are the three most important pillars I like to base happiness on. Everything else is just gravy 🙂
While we all wish for more, please never forget to take a moment and appreciate all that you have and all the good things in your life, for there are others who don’t even have that …
