Perspective... & Manic Monday - Wish

Some days things are put into perspective. Today is such a day.

I wish that there were no suffering in the world. I wish that bad things did not happen.

However they do. And sometimes I realise HOW lucky I am. And really how little I have to worry about. I have a home, a boyfriend, a job (or two or three), good health, a car, food, water... not much money but usually enough.

When I hear about bad or sad things I want to make it better. I think that's a girl thing - I want to hug it away. If only you could!

So I'll hug those I have. And I'll look after what I have. And be grateful that I have them.

Yeah, I fall somewhere in the middle too...maybe a few more health problems than most, but lucky in many other areas of life.

I'm with you. Basically I have the things I need and a lot of the things I want.

Hi TC. At the beginning of January, I set my screensaver to tell me "I have enough". Reading your blog reminded me that "enough" is not just linked to material things in life. Ta much!

MOI - Health is a big one that I didn't think to write down. doh. I'm gonna add it - thank you x

Trav - it's not a bad life is it really.

Mrs S - that's a nice idea - positive reminder.

Gattina - I really wish it would work if I could!

Your so right, we should always be thankful for what we have and not moan about what we haven't. Like you I wish I had arms long enough to wrap around all my friends and folks in need of a hug, such a small action but it can mean so much.

So sweet. I agree with my whole heart. Did you hear about anything in particular that made you think this?
