Inequity in life...
I am truly amazed when I am out and about in public. Whether it be work, the grocery store, a restaurant, and even church *gasp* (yes even at church)...one common occurrence that I witness is someone complaining about something. They may be on the phone going off to the mystery human on the other line; or even just bantering to another individual near them. Either way I am truly amazed that out of everything we have in this country that there is so much to complain about. A country where our homeless live better than many people in third world countries.
I challenge anyone reading this...from this day on...take the opportunity to focus on the positive things in your life. The blessings that have been given to you. If you need to stop and look around at nature...it is soothing, relaxing, and can really allow for you to acknowledge some of the great things we have in life. If you apply your attention prosaically on a daily basis you will find things begin to look up for you. Once you reach the point of feeling more optimistic about yourself and the world around you; you can then share that optimism with the world.
With all that being said...do NOT let the negativity become your idiosyncratic style. It is ugly and repulsing. No matter how bad things get...remember what you DO have.
If you focus on these things they will drag you down and not allow you to grow and move forward to reach your future goals and aspirations.
