Remind yourself how good you have it. Then challenge yourself to do something meaningful and significant with what you have.
Sure, you have your problems and challenges. Yet they are far overshadowed by the positive possibilities and opportunities open to you.
In fact, some of those very problems might indeed point you toward your most valuable possibilities. Even when life is at its most difficult, it is overflowing with opportunities.
What a shame it would be to have so much and not make full use of it. What a shame it would be to not experience and express and spread life’s richness far and wide.
Don’t even think about complaining about what you don’t have, for it is a waste of your precious life. Focus instead on all the goodness you do have in your world.
Embrace that goodness, and make it even more vibrant as it flows out from you. Realize how good you truly have it, and make it better and better.
