And You Think Your Life Is Rough

Lately I’ve been thinking and learning about being thankful for what I have. I’m one of those people that can easily look at the negative side of things. I don’t like go into deep depression or anything, but if I’m not careful everything can seem sad to me!

I get sad whenever anything changes. I cried buckets of tears when I graduated highschool, knowing things would never be the same. I got sentimental and a little down every time I was done with a certain semester of classes and was getting a new schedule. I don’t like starting a new year—all I can think about is how I will never ever again have this year back. I think I just inherited a very sentimental, easily-attachable nature. (From my dad!) In some ways it’s a good thing—whatever I’m doing right at the moment, I end up liking it and don’t want to change. But it definitely can be a bad thing, when I don’t realize that I like what I’m doing until it’s over and something changes. Like college—I didn’t realize how much I loved it until it was over! (But I haven’t forgotten the stress and to-do list…yeah, I’m not crying much over that one. 😉 )

Here’s something else I can sympathize with:

Please tell me I’m not the only one who hates changing my password! Even my fingers grow used to typing in my trusty old password and I have to get them used to a new one all over again.

So sometimes it’s good to just take a step back.

To look around and realize that even when everything seems wrong, I am a blessed person. I’m going to Heaven. God’s on my side, He’s working in me. I live in America. I have two loving families that live within driving distance. I have Abe, and Kali. I have a lot of work to do…but that means I have a house and a job! I have a lot to pray about…but that means I have a lot of opportunities to see God work.

I’ve compiled some “First-World Problems” memes that put things in perspective. If you need a smile today or a reminder that it’s all gonna be OK, I’ve inserted some of my favorite stop-being-ridiculous pictures below. Hope it makes you smile!
