You're Getting an Education

Isn't it funny how we complain about the most simple things? This week I have heard myself and others complain about:
  • The weather
  • Pains in their bodies
  • Homework
  • Tv shows
  • Parents
  • Sickness
  • Not being able to see their grade
It just amazes me how much we see the negative side of everything. One of my friends (that I seldom hear complain) told me that one day she was complaining about math and her teacher said, "Why are you complaining? You're getting an education." So true. There are so many people in the world who don't even get the chance to go to school, and yet, we complain about it.

I am trying to be way more thankful this year. Here are just a few things I am thankful for:
  • Jesus- I couldn't live without Him
  • My family- In which I have been appreciating a lot more lately
  • My dog- : )
  • My friends- Even when I get tired of them, I know that I have picked the best. : )
  • My house- I love being warm in the winter
  • My tv shows- Whose Line, Biggest Loser, Hell's Kitchen, Minute to Win it (I am such a diverse girl!)
  • Running and good water- Yes, some places don't have this
Like I said... just a few things. But I encourage you to take a few minutes and think about how much you really do have in your life. You'll be surprised.
