How ungrateful are you?


I wrote a blog post 'Do you take it for granted?' where I talk about the things you would never think about and probably do take for granted. If you haven't read that one then you should have a read, because this post leads on from there. In this post I'm going to talk about the things that we are more aware of, and we
sometimes or all of the time take for granted.
Home, family, friends, eyes, ears, hair, nose, mouth, tongue, teeth, hands, fingers, feet, a heart, hair, clothes, sofa, kitchen, chairs, TV, TV stand, book shelf, pots and pans, utensils, perfume, shoes, PS4, Xbox, laptop, internet, Wi-Fi, phones, social media, a job, skincare products, a toilet, bath, a place to have a shower, privacy, people who you can trust, people who you love, talent in a certain area, knowledge of certain things, doing something you love, school, university, education, memory, a mind to think with, you can taste things, you can hear things, you can see things, hospital, treatments, music, money, a car, shelter, restaurants, places to have an adventure, entertainment, water, all of your senses, traveling, pets, motor skills, nature, cooking, medicine, electricity, imagination,  breathing, each other, health, being a parent, freedom (emotional freedom, freedom of speech etc.), LIFE.
The above list goes on and on. If you do not have all of the things mentioned on the list then you're most likely to have some. I'm just trying to tell you that these are the things that some people may not have. 
You might have most of the things on the list but instead of looking at the people above you, look at people who are more vulnerable than you. Some people don't have food, they don't have a place to call home, they may not even have clothes to wear so don't take things for granted. Don't be ungrateful.

If you have family or friends, appreciate them, compliment them and tell them how much you love them. Try not to argue with them, and if you end up arguing then don't go to sleep mad at them. We don't know how long we are all living for. Just enjoy life and be happy with what you have. Instead of being greedy and wanting more, just be happy. There is nothing wrong with working hard to get to where you want, but just be grateful for what you already have. 

Don't be ungrateful and realise all the amazing things you have.

We have all been there at some point in our life when we don't realise what we have. We start taking things for granted and sometimes all you need is a little reminder. It's acceptable to have less things, long as you are happy and grateful. That's when you will value everything much more. You could be a millionaire but you might not be fully content because your greed gets the better of you, and all you want is 'more and more'. You might be searching for happiness but you might not find it. But when you look around and be grateful for all the things you have then you'll see life in a new way.

To end it I'm going to say be happy with everything you have because, some people may not be as lucky as you are. Appreciate the people in your life, be grateful for the things you have and, always be real. Some people don't even have as much as you do so be thankful.

I would love to know what are your top three things you couldn't live without and are grateful for?
