I've always been the type who wanted what they couldn't have and secretly disliked those who were able to have what I couldn't. There I admitted it. As I've grown older I've become more aware of the longing to be in with the "in crowd", especially in the industry I'm in. I've also disliked some of my colleagues because they had gear I could never afford, or being able to attend every workshop under the sun. It's horrible! I feel so guilty because I've neglected to see all the wonderful blessings that God has given ME. I cannot expect him to give me everything I've wanted or answer every.single.prayer....because if he did I'd have a Pony & I'd still be with my ex-boyfriend who clearly wasn't meant for me! God knows my NEEDS and will fulfill them as he see's fit, my want's are nothing compared to what he knows I need! This year I am going to work on trusting God with my needs and thanking him for the blessings he gives to me. I may not be able to have all the latest gear or attend every new workshop that pops up, but when he see's the time is right he may bless me in that way.
So stop looking at what other's have and be thankful for what God has blessed YOU with, it's hard to do sometimes...but count your many blessings, you'll be surprised at how they add up!
