Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. This weekend I was talking to someone who talking me about things they weren't happy with, and I thought about how a lot of people want what they don't have. People with curly hair want straight hair, and those with straight hair would love curly locks. Sometimes those that are too thin would like to gain a few pounds, while those that are overweight would like to lose a few. It's a never ending battle. We always want what we don't have. Why can't we just be grateful for what we DO have. Someone with a small house wants one bigger. Someone with an old car wants a new one. But there is also someone with no house that would grateful with a small house. Or a person that would be grateful driving around that old beater. Be grateful you are where you are and with what you have. God has put you where in your life for a reason, it may be to grow, or someday help others with your situation. But remember it could always be worse. I am just so blessed to be alive and have people that love me and that I love surround me. Material things come and go. That's all I have for today. God Bless!

When you feel down and upset with everything that is happening with your life, please always remember how lucky you are that you got the position where you are right now or the things that you have. There could be possible people who are suffering more than you, so you should always take that into consideration. Before complaining, it would be ideal to always check on the mirror first, because you might be acting a little bit prissy because you don't see other people's situation. Always think that you're blessed, and you will be blessed!
