Well today marks my 30th birthday, I’m now officially 1 year older and wiser then last year. This is probably also one of the darkest periods in my life. I’ve been through a lot this past year.
but even though I’m pretty much dirt broke right now and can’t afford to buy myself a present nor a birthday cake. I’m trying to embrace a new philosophy of life which involves being more positive and thankful for the things that I do have such as:
- My health. There are a lot of people out there who are in way way worse shape then me.
- I grew up in a developed country with clean air,fresh water, and doesn’t have thugs running around rampant.
- I have a roof over my head
- Good health care
- Had a good Canadian education.
Sometimes when you feel down and lonely, and you feel like you have no control over your life any more, just remember this… You have control over your outlook and attitude. I’ve learnt through these struggles that its much better to look for the positives in everything then the negatives. You can choose how you see things. I think this will allow you to take the proper action when its required instead of wallowing in self pity. Because of this positive outlook I decided to embrace, I was able to find $10 on the floor today because I was more attentive to my surroundings. Not bad for a birthday gift eh? I ended up going to Krispy Kreme and stuffing my face with 2 donuts. I hadn’t had these babies for 6 months now and have been craving it like crazy ever since.
What are you guys thankful for? Please leave a comment below.
