Entitlement

I don’t know who this person is living inside of me lately. I’ve felt so chaotic, irritated, and.. well… dramatic. I have NOT been able to look on the bright side, which is sad, because I would say that is usually one of my greatest qualities.

I think I let myself become ungrateful, pretty ungrateful. I get so stuck in this state of mind that I am entitled to one thing or the other. I should be living the dream, so to speak. When in actuality where I am right now, is fine. Its more than fine, its blessed.

So I think tonight I will spend an evening focusing on how grateful I am. We are all so concerned in getting to this one “place”, “if I could only do this, or, “if I could only be there.” When all the while we are “home” we are present and we are alive. That in itself is enough for me. (atleast today) :) A man at my work sent this email today, about God’s love and how he is so patient and kind to us. Here’s a part I especially liked:

Love comes and sits with you when you’re feeling down and finds out what is wrong. It empathizes with you and believes in you. Love knows you’ll come through just as God planned, and love sticks right beside you all the way.

I hope you are able to see all of your blessings today. Love to you…

    This is exactly how I’ve been feeling lately. This post really got to me. I’m really going to try and start being grateful for what I have today and quit stressing about the other things I have no control over. My life is pretty darn good, thanks for reminding me.

    I recently decided to start a blog and I just wanted to say I like your work, you’ve given me great inspiration.
