I seem to concentrate too much lately on the negative. I need to concentrate on the positives, as there are more of those. There’s a reason why we need to stop for a while and smell the roses. I get too lost in what I don’t have instead of being thankful and grateful for what I do have.

I wrote a long post on this topic this morning but when I went to upload it, nothing showed up. I tried to reach back into my saved draft but it was blank. So, I’ll write it again but I’ll make it short this time.

I need to remind myself that I have a roof over my head, food on the table, I’ve never been cold and thankfully I’ve never been too hot. I have clothes and a vehicle and at least some goodly amount of money in a secure financial environment. All of these things didn’t come too easily. Much sacrifice had to be done to make it all blend out and balance. It isn’t easy living a debt-free life. Sometimes I wish I had more but I have to appreciate what is enough. It’s good every once in a while to remind oneself the power of ‘enough’.
