Is Your Life Really So Bad?


 We all complain. We all want something better, someone better. We strive to look better, to be better. It’s such a waste of time. Stop focusing on what you don’t have and start feeling joy for everything you do have. It could be your health, a loved one or even that ass of yours that most people envy.
If you have trouble being staying positive and content, take a look at the pictures of two-year-old Aylan Kurdi. His body, as well as his four-year old brother, Galip, has washed up on the beach in Turkey. His family was trying to escape from war ravaged Syria in a boat with their mom and dad. His dad is the only one who survived when the boat they were on turned over in murky waters.
"I don't want anything else from this world," The father told CNN on Thursday. "Everything I was dreaming of is gone. I want to bury my children and sit beside them until I die."
Life can’t be like a Walt Disney movie, and there’s really no ‘happily ever after,’ but instead of most of us always focusing on the negatives that life throws us, let’s just be thankful for what we do have.
