We all live in a world where God put us to enjoy lives the right way. We all strive to earn for ourselves a life that will give us satisfaction and happiness. We Homo sapiens literally hate regret and are evidently scared to death of its possibilities. Sometimes we even go as far as to believe that we are better off than somebody else just because we have money, beauty, talents or positions. We come to conclusions so fast. Many leading to regrets that tend to stay on for a long, long time.
That man you see every day by your door selling fruits , could be just as happy and proud of his fruit cart, as the richest man in the world is of his billion dollar business. In fact he could be having much more happiness in his life. And here we are looking at him thinking how better off we are.
You can’t buy happiness. Why ever not? Well, it’s just because you just can’t sell it. Even if you want to. Happiness is a choice sometimes. You have to trust God to heal you and just let go of your past. The very picture of the sun rising above us everyday reminds us that yesterday is no more. Why in the world should we hold on to it?
We are all in the same boat. Some of us have gone through much more pain and sorrow. But we still are in the same boat. It’s just that somebody got a better seat with a good view.
When you are in first grade Math is so hard, when really its so easy. Our situations and what we’ve seen and gone through sometimes has a great role to play in how we respond to life. You could be devastated about you losing your only job, only to come home and see your 5-year-old kid just as devastated because he cannot find his teddy bear. We are all in the same boat. Sometimes we who have the best seats and the good views should look around our boat to see if there’s someone who needs it much more than you do.
You can’t sell happiness but you could be one in somebody else’s life. So look around today. Give somebody a compliment and be happy to give up your seat to somebody who needs it more than you do.
God bless you.
