Life is a Gift

I found this article in my inbox and it made me realize how lucky i am all this time. i complained about 60 kgs of my weight, i complained about my mom's cook, i complained about how old my car is.. 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 husband or wife-Think of someone who's crying out to God for a companion. Today before you complain about life-Think of someone who went too early to heaven. Before you complain about your children-Think of someone who desires children but they're barren. Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn't clean or sweep-Think of the people who are living in the streets. Before whining about the distance you drive-Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job-Think of the unemployed, the disable and those who wished they had your job. But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another-Remember that not one of us are without wrong doings. And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down-Put a smile on your face and be thankful you're alive and still around. Life is a gift, live it, enjoy it, celebrate it, and fulfill it.
