I am currently stuck in a lot of work. That I neglect my blog, fail to see my friends and just hit the sack when I get home. I barely have time for myself.
Skipped going to the dentist to get my braces adjusted, even forgot to see my dermatologist!
Every night, I go check Facebook just to be in the know about what is happening in my circle of friends and somehow I cannot relate. Its like I’m trapped in an alternate world where all I see is other people’s blessings. I see their happy faces, travel pictures, family outings, new bags, nice clothes, shiny cars and the latest dose of gossip (who is with whom, who is seen in where…etc.). I then think about how badly I want a vacation, daydream about leaving and travelling… that always ends with I wish I have more money. Then I get sad.
But, this time my self pitying was halted by a pop up chat message from an old friend.
It says: Sorry for disturbing your evening but, can I please ask for help? I will be blunt. I am jobless for more than a year, I can barely keep up with my living expenses I need a job. please help.
Bam! Instant reality check.
While I was busy complaining that I am buried in a pile of work, my friend desperately prays for work.
I was appalled at my behavior and quickly thanked God for the daily blessings I receive.
Then proceeded to look at the net for some leads that could fit my friend. After a while some of my friends found something for the friend in need.
There is a lot to be thankful for.
Thank God for everyday blessings and carry on a positive attitude.
