Have you smelt the roses lately?

 
Greetings one and all, this Great New Day.
 
This weeks topic...'Have you smelt the roses lately?' focuses on the good things in your life.
 
It is too easy (when you see new products flaunted in your face daily) to feel lacking, unlucky or just plain undeserving.
I mean, you can't buy everything, the 'Jones' are running a tight race, and if you were to upgrade your phone every time a new model came out, you'd never know your own phone number.
 
Is it the collection of things we have gathered through out our lives that give our lives true meaning?
Is it the fact that we have all the latest gadgets that qualify us to be real humans?
Does our value of our selves depend on what somebody else thinks of us?
 
Try changing your focus from "I wish I had that" to "I've got this".
Anytime you feel lacking in whatever material things you desire try this new thinking.
 
There is nothing wrong with having 'nice' things, if you work hard for them, the problem is when we begin browbeating ourselves for the things we don't have, or measuring our humanity with goods and even going as far as to separate ourselves from those who do not have what we think is 'cool'.
 
This society places much emphasis on the pursuit of happiness.
It is to be perceived that money will bring this pursuit to an end, but how many millionaires/celebrities do we see in and out of rehab, suicide attempts and in trouble all the time as they are not contented with their riches and the many, many things they can purchase.
 
Happiness is not to be purchased, nor is it to be pursued.
It's already yours, you just have to switch it on and enjoy.
 
If you are lucky enough to have a family- be really grateful.
If you are in good health and of sound mind- be really grateful.
If you have genuine friends- be really grateful.
If you have ten fingers and 10 toes that are in fine working order or even if they're not- be really grateful.
If you have eyes to see this wonderfully beautiful earth...be truly grateful.
 
I could go on and on about the things we don't look at/appreciate everyday- but we'd be here all day, and I think by now you get the gist.
 
When we die a list of our gadgets and material belongings will not be read out at our funerals, because they are not of any importance,
but the person we were during our lives will be mentioned,
the good deeds we did will be mentioned and 
the love we shared will be mentioned also... and remembered.
Be of good character!
 
If we place our worth in fleeting things,
we will find we disappear without trace of us ever walking this earth, as these things have no place in eternity. 
 
Blessings, have a great week!
The Kayz

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Kudos
