shortcoming or blessing.

I was thinking today, as I try to do on a consistent basis in order to function in life.  There are people in life who will point out things you find as blessings to be shortcomings.  For example, somone may point out that John Doe seems to get gadgets before others.  This person may also point out John Doe’s electronics are updated within 6 mos leaving him to the ‘old stuff’, which is expected.  Is this a (tangible) shortcoming?  I like to think of this more as a blessing.  John Doe is pretty lucky to be able to experience things he enjoys and is a trendsetter.  Lucky for him, he may also get bored easily so the fact that gadgets change in 6 mos may be what excites him? 

Kind of like changing my hair every 5 weeks.  It’s like a whole new Pribble.  If my hairstylist chooses the wrong cut for my face…it’s ok.  Why?  Because hair grows back.  5 weeks later…new Pribble.  Love it.

Don’t get caught up in what others have and always be thankful for what you do have.  The fact is things are only ‘things’.  Life is short and nothing matters more than the loved ones you have in your life and the way you choose to live your life.  Count your blessings.  The more humble you are the more blessings you will receive.  I have learned the hard way a time or two…which I am sure I will continue to learn for the rest of my days.

I love my family and friends…gadgets, schmadgets are just extras people get to enjoy.

Enjoy your day!
