(I already know I'm gonna get complaints about this post. Because I know people who are gonna assume it's directed at them. It's not. But I will say this.. if you feel like you're guilty of this maybe you should consider why..)
People are so selfish. Sometimes I just wanna shake them and say, "WAKE UP! Don't you see how lucky you are? You're alive, you're not homeless or starving, you have clean water to drink. Your life could be SO much worse!"
I realize I don't have much room to talk in the complaining department. I'm guilty of having the occassional pity party. Sure, everyone's entitled to a nervous breakdown every so often. At least when something tragic happens, I REALIZE how lucky I am, how insignificant my "problems" are. So, I broke a nail, my freaking feelings got hurt, I didn't get exactly what I wanted. So.. freakin.. what!
Right now, people in Japan are missing, dead, starving, homeless. Suddenly my life seems pretty good. Here's my challenge to you: SUCK IT UP. I'm sorry that you're having a bad day, week, year. But guess what, it could always be worse. Right now it IS worse for a LOT of people. Think about someone other than yourself for five minutes today. Consider how lucky you are and the things you have to be positive for.
And, for goodness sake, put a freaking smile on your face!
