For Granted.

Have you ever actually looked around? While sitting at work, at home, in your car, outside, at the mall, or still laying in your bed, look around. Look at everything that you have. Realize that some of the smallest objects that you see can make the biggest difference in Life. Something so small as a rock could change the entire course of nature. Even though a rock is so small and has no visual point, it does have one of the biggest purposes in Life.

One of the greatest mistakes that most of us make is how we take so much for granted. We all need to realize how much we have been blessed with. Realize that even the smallest things can be some of the greatest blessings in our lives. Never turn down an opportunity to meet someone. Have you ever thought of how much of an impact they will have on your Life? The world is filled with rocks, short ones, tall ones, big ones, small ones, and all different colors. When will we realize that they all serve a purpose? When will we realize they are blessings given to us? When will we realize that we are all equal?

I recently realized what culture shock really was. My culture shock was seeing how fortunate we are to live here and to have the things that we have. The shock of how ignorant we are to so many things. 

We need to make a change. We need to stop taking for granted the surroundings we have. We need to take care of what we have. We need to enjoy everything. We need to consider those around us and respect them. We have worked hard to be where we are today. Be proud of where you are, of what you have become, of the accomplishments you have made, of the journeys you have taken. 

When you fail, try harder. If you get knocked down get up and stand firm and stand for what you believe in. Keep Life filled with joy, filled with love, and filled with passion.

And remember the words of the great Ferris Bueller: 

Life moves pretty fast, if you dont stop and take a look around every once in a while. You might miss it.
