The other day I stepped out my home to the minimart nearby to get some fruits. It was a hot and humid night. And in my head I started nagging about the heat…for a minute then stopped and thought about it: so I am going to the minimart that is less than 100 meters away, walking – that is I am in a good health, to buy something that I can afford, walking at night in a safe place then going back to a home where my family is safe and sound. Once I realized all this, I came back home thanking God for all the blessings I have, with every step I took.
See, sometimes you nag about your baby waking up at night for breastfeeding => baby is in a good health and you can breastfeed
Sometimes you nag about running around for your kids => you were able to have kids
Sometimes you nag about your kids being loud and doing mess around => they are in a good health and are meeting their milestones without major challenges
Sometimes you nag about being in the traffic => you own a car with a working air conditioning
Sometimes you nag about your boss or your colleagues or the workload => you have a job
Sometimes you nag about your extra weight that you can’t lose => you can eat anything you want
Sometimes you nag about your children’s grades => you can afford sending them to school and trust me grades are nothing.
Sometimes you nag about your parents are calling you very often => they are still alive
Sometimes you nag about the heat/cold when you go out => you are able to open the door and walk out
Sometimes you nag about how your feet hurt you because of how much you walked too much => you are not in a wheelchair
Sometimes we are so taken into our own drama that we forget our own blessings. Now I don’t expect you to be positive and happy all the time, especially when have more serious matters than what I stated above. It is ok to nag and feel down, just make sure once you start nagging, start counting the blessings. It always works.
Germany Kent , an American journalist and actress, said: “Take time daily to reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have.”
And Elizabeth Gilbert, an American author, said: ““At some point, you gotta let go, and sit still, and allow contentment to come to you.”
If you can get to a contentment state, you are already wealthy!
