The things that you take for granted someone else is praying for
In the hustle bustle of 21st century living we sometimes neglect certain things and take them for granted. We have super computers in the palm of our hands, endless streams of information at our fingertips and luxuries of our day to day that one hundred years ago wouldn’t even be imaginable. The speed at which we move today in business and life is incredible. We have become accustomed to this fever pace and sometimes we forget how much we have to be grateful for.
Just take a look at the house or apartment in which you are living. There are countless things throughout that you are so accustomed to that you barely even take a moment to appreciate. At the flick of a switch you are given light to the darkest of rooms. A kitchen full of appliances that make cooking a breeze. With the turn of a handle you have water at your disposal for several purposes of day to day living. A push of a button and you have seemingly endless streams of entertainment and information on what is going on throughout the world. Countless machines that make living on a daily basis much easier with each serving a specific purpose. A car that allows you to go to any destination with ease, giving you the freedom to travel miles in a relatively short period of time. These are just a small portion of things in our daily lives that makes life that much easier to live. All of us are truly blessed to have these things.
Since so many things have been ingrained into society in such a perceivably effortless fashion we often have an expectation that they will always be in our lives. In a way we take these little luxuries for granted. Others would be incredibly grateful to have these “luxuries” in their lives. We should all take a moment to be grateful for the little things in our day to day lives because others would do anything to have these little things. There is always things to be grateful for, no matter how minuscule they may seem in the grand picture of our lives. Do me a small favor find 10 things to be grateful for that you may be taking for granted.
Now for those who may not have what you want in life, whether it be a home of your own, the job of your dreams or anything else you feel is lacking in your life. Be grateful for the things that you currently have. Gratitude is a mindset of abundance, because even if we perceive that we don’t have much, in reality we still have something to be thankful for. No matter how small it is. You have your mind and that alone is something to be incredibly grateful for. You are alive and that is a blessing to this earth. Small gratitude’s in our lives allow us to see how truly beautiful life really is.
Hi! Welcome to the Imagination Salvation blog! My name is Bill and I decided to start writing this blog because my passion in life is to help others find the greatness they possess inside of them. I wholeheartedly believe that every person deserves to live their best life possible. My hope is that this blog helps you in the journey of life. Potentially sparking something inside of you to make any changes necessary to your life to live it to the best.
For the first post I would like to share with you my motto about life. I wrote this about six years ago after probably the toughest time of my life. Tough times happen to everyone. It is an inevitable reality of life. These times don’t last unless we allow them to. It is all about the perspective we have on this thing called life. The easier thing to do is to become cynical about life and look at life from a negative viewpoint. The other thing we may do is to continue to believe that life is beautiful and look at life through positive eyes. I chose the positive way and wrote about everything that I truly believe about life. Here is the result.
Life is Beautiful
Live everyday as if it were your last
Dream as if life was a never ending adventure
Give wholeheartedly to benefit the lives of others
Love with a heart of gold
Work is a blessing
Risk as if you have nothing to lose
Hope as if nothing ever dies
Believe with all of your soul
Have steadfast faith in the end result
Persist for as long as you exist
Stay hungry and never stop
You are always making improvements
There is opportunity in every disaster
Your character determines your success
Inspire others to believe that anything is possible
You are a person of destiny
Your imagination is your only limit
So live lifeBill Purdy
I am not going to explain what this motto means for myself. That’s not important. What’s important is what this motto may do for you. You may be going through some tough times yourself or my feel that you want more out of your life. Maybe you’re just looking for a bit of inspiration for your day. Whatever that reason may be I want to tell you something even though I don’t know you. You are beautiful. You are capable. You have what it takes inside of you to live your life to its fullest potential. You deserve it. You have the courage to begin to live a better life. All it takes is a single step. You can change your thoughts to a positive nature. Life is beautiful. I believe in you.
