Ever realized how many times you say the words, “I want” in a day or a week.
Just think about that? It was a lot wasn’t it? For me it’s almost too many times to count. I realized that’s something that I struggle with. I’m constantly thinking about myself and the wants and needs in my life that I don’t take time to see my blessings and the gifts I do have. Looking at the others that are less fortunate than me and it makes me disgusted with myself to know I was being that selfish.
Focusing on others needs and helping them with what you can do can bring such joy to your own life and be more satisfying than getting yourself that new shirt or outfit you wanted. It is a sacrifice to give up things you want and give to others, but if you can find that joy in giving, your life can be just as blessed. Look beyond your own needs and seek to help others. It’s a difficult task, but also a very rewarding one.
