The lottery in life
The next time you have a bad day or get hung up on what you don’t have in your life, take a minute to think about what you DO have and write it down so you can reflect on it later.
Try to put things into perspective and just think about how lucky you really are to have the basics in life that we so often take for granted. We live in a beautiful city with a roof over our heads, healthcare, running water, food…
We’ve won the lottery in life simply by being born at this certain time and certain place. The next time you think “I wish I had,” pause for a moment and list all of the good things that you already have in your life. A rich life can come from within through laughter, making a difference in the world, rewarding connections with others, and self-value.
