Your life

Life Is a special privilege even though you might not see it that way

   Today before you say an unkind word -
   Think of someone who can't speak.

   Before you complain about the taste of your food -
   Think of someone who has nothing to eat.

 Before you complain about your husband or wife -
 Think of someone who's crying out for a companion.
        Today before you complain about life -
        Think of someone who died early .

Before whining about the distance you drive
  - Think of someone who walks the same distance with his feet.

And when you are tired and complain about your job -  Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job.

And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down -
Put a smile on your face and think: you're alive and still around.
  Please try to stop complaining, never ridicule other people.

All of us moan from time to time

What we do not notice is how this can become a habit

And habits once formed are hard to shift

So make your habits ones of compassion and appreciation for life

Once you do this your life changes for the better


Because you are becoming one with life.

Moving from a little blob of me me me.

To one uniting with all around you.

You are becoming more altruistic.
