Last night, while out to dinner, I had a wake up call.
Lately I have become a ‘why me’ person. My husband and I have had a string of bad luck, which has been causing me to feel very bad for myself.
While waiting for our food, I began to cry. Looking around, I realized that I have a great life. I have a home, a loving husband, a caring family, and friends who would do anything for me. Although things are rough, my problems are temporary. There are plenty of people in this world whose problems are permanent, and yet they go about their lives happily. They never ask ‘why me.’ They accept the hands they are dealt and make the most out of life.
Things aren’t awesome right now, but they are fixable. I just needed a little reminder to put my life in perspective.
