I’ve always loved inspirational and motivational quotes, and even when I was younger and waaay before Pinterest, I would find my favorite quotes and write it in a big purple notebook – one that I still have today. So when Pinterest came around and I found myself obsessed (it didn’t take that long..), one of my first boards was my word to the wise board, and so Wednesday Wisdom was born.
This week's WW:
I always think about what pair of shoes I wanna buy, or this new expensive handbag that I have to have, or how I don't like what's for dinner tonight, and I stop myself. What about those who don't have shoes, or have nothing to put inside a handbag, or can barely afford dinner for themselves or their family tonight. Our generation is a really materialistic one, and I always find myself falling down that path too.. (and it's hard too! We really do want shoes sometimes, and we work hard for them too!) but I always have to remind myself that I am so lucky to have so many things. To have an expensive MacBook to type this on, to have a functioning body, two parents who love me, a large family and a whole lot of friends who would do anything for me. I have two legs, two arms, ten fingers and ten toes. I have a functioning brain, and an amazing university education that I could never re-pay my family for. Sometimes we just need to stop and be grateful for what we have. You never know what you have until it's gone, and these days, nothing in life is guaranteed. So enjoy it while you have it, and appreciate your life every minute of the day, and when you can do charity. Doing something for someone else is the easiest way to find yourself. Guaranteed!
End rant! Happy Hump-Day everyone!
