I used to be so fond of using that word. Throwing it at every caption, every little thing. Then I realize it meant something deeper. That only a few things would deserve being preceded by it. And that one of those few things is you.
Grateful piece of crap
So I felt all jelly and envious while browsing some random rich kid’s instragram account and seeing all her selfies with her iPhone 5s while driving her luxury car (she’s about my age, btw). My frustration made me close the IG app and then it hit me.. I am such a piece of crap. How dare I feel envious with the fortunes of others while I am living a pretty good life myself. More than the gadgets and gizmos, more than all material possessions, are the people I am blessed with and the life chances and opportunities that made me who I am and took me where I am today.
Thank you, God, that by making me look at others’ fortunes greater than my own, I found contentment and gratitude.
