Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food–
Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your sister or brother–
Think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life–
Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you argue about your dirty house,
Think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you travel–
Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your homework–
Think of the someone who is denied education.
Before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
Remember that not one of us are without sin.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
Put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.
