Life’s very uncertain, what’s there today isn’t there tomorrow. There are others out there longing for what we have and so are we. So why not instead of longing for what we don’t have and looking at the negative side of our lives, we appreciate and be grateful for what we have?

I have a lot to be grateful for, but to begin with I’m most grateful for my family. Whatever I am today is just because of them. The support, love, and strength that they give are inexpressible. Is it like that for you too? So instead of fighting with them for the problems and add up to them why not give them a shoulder and help them get through it?

Instead of arguing with them all the time why not be quiet and listen to their perspective too and find solutions for it peacefully? Because at the end of the day, whatever they do is for you and for your betterment. I’m also very grateful for my brothers and sisters who guide me in every step of my life and are always there for me no matter what. They add meaning to my life and are the priceless gems of it.

In a similar way, I have a lot more to be grateful for, like my friends, without whom life is incomplete. They are the ones who add up fun and happiness to it. I’m also very grateful for the life I have, full of love and bliss. All I wish is for it to be like this forever. So instead of always focusing on the negatives, let’s pay a little heed to the positives. After all, life’s very small and so pause and appreciate!
