That you don’t already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
When you don’t know something,
It gives you the opportunity to learn.
For the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
For your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
For each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
For your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
When you’re tired and weary,
because it means you’ve made a difference.
It’s easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
It has been ages since I first read this beautiful poem. Nevertheless I still don’t know who is the author.
