Entitlement or gratitude? Which of those are you filled with? I think they are pretty much the opposite of each other.
We all have so many expectations in to-day’s society. We want everything and everyone around us to be perfect. Our version of perfect that is. We get offended if another vehicle cuts in front of us or if a friend doesn’t treat us the way we feel they should.
We seem to forget that the other folks are living their lives towards their ‘perfection’ also. They aren’t really interested in our needs. They are travelling their own road with their own expectations of us.
WE have to learn to ‘get over it’ quickly. Forget about it if someone does not do as you expect of them. Just carry on and be grateful for what they did do.
That is the key. Teach yourself to be grate-ful for all the things around you. We all have a lot going for us but we just take it all for granted.
I can say that my life is a lot tougher than it was a couple of years ago, but through this journey I have seen a lot of blessings. I have had many people step up to help me in many ways. And I am grateful.
A perfect example is dialysis itself. I hate it but I am grateful that I am able to do it and stay alive. Believe me, the gratefulness outweighs the negative aspects every time.
