BE GRATEFUL….

It’s a privilege that you can eat the food you want to eat. It’s a privilege that you can sleep when you want to sleep. It’s a privilege that you have somewhere you call your house. It’s a privilege that you are in the university/ secondary school/ working. It’s a privilege that you can smile anytime. It’s a privilege that you can talk to that person next to you.

It’s a privilege that you are in a marriage/ relationship, and you are still happy. It’s a privilege that you can go where you want to go to. It’s a privilege that you have this device that you are using to read this article. It’s a privilege that you can think with your brain. It’s is a privilege that you have that true friend. It’s a privilege that you found that true love.

It’s a privilege that you know God and serve God the way you want to. It’s a privilege that you are you. It’s a privilege that you can achieve your vision and set goals. It’s a privilege that you are alive.

If you think and believe that it is a right to have all this things, think of that person you saw on TV the other day asking for help or the Berger sitting on the road asking for money because they cannot afford to treat themselves after having critical health issues. If you think that it’s a right, remember those people that lost their homes to the recent flooding/fire outbreak and recent terrorist attacks.

There is someone out there that envies and wishes he or she is like you because you have all these privileges, and you are always there complaining about yourself, complaining that there is no money and so many other things.

My friends, when there is life, there is hope, and when there is hope, the impossible is always possible, and when the impossible is always possible, there is faith, and when there is faith, you can still make it, and when you can still make it, you still stand that chance to be the next solution finder to that problem of our generation, the next lender to many nations, the next CEO of a world class industry, the next president of your country, the next BIG thing that happened to our world, the next you that would shake the economy of the world. Your achievements are boundless and limitless, I can’t mention them all.

You just have to continue to work hard, pray well, put more effort and don’t lose hope. You would surely achieve all you want to achieve. Always remember to Give thanks for what you have while you work hard to get what you don’t have. All is well.
