I know I am always talking about how important it is to be grateful for what you have. Well, today I am grateful for what I don't have.
There are a few things I remind myself of everyday:
Recently I had back surgery and I was feeling pretty down about it. I didn’t want to go. All you think about are bad things that could happen when you’re put to sleep and they cut you open.
Between filling out all of the necessary paperwork and answering tons of questions, mentally I was spent.
Do you have/have you had:
I can go on and on. There were probably 100 things on that list. As I’m checking things off the list I thought to myself, “Wow, back surgery doesn’t sound all that bad considering all these boxes I’m saying, 'no,' to.”
So, what’s my point? Well, while the back surgery gave me a little scare, I realized that there are a lot of things I don’t have…and that’s a good thing. For the most part, I’ve maintained my health and that’s something I need to always be grateful for.
What are you grateful for?
"Yeah, having houses across the globe gives my wife something to do, but its all bullshit. I couldn’t care less about them. The only thing that matters in life is relationships with friends and family. That’s it."
