Be grateful...

02 November 2011, 18:00
Have you realised that time is precious?

At this time as you are reading this post somebody is fighting for his life somewhere...what do we do as human beings? We brag, complaining about our wants while we have all the basic needs that will enable the human being to survive.

Is this you?

I am not perfect either but I have eliminated complaints about my life and I suggest u should do so. For the fact that you are literate enough to read it doesn’t mean you should complain about your life being not perfect but you are educated.

What can be more important than the fact that you are still alive? What could be more important than the fact that you can still see while others cant? What could be more important than the fact that you have eaten something while somebody somewhere haven’t even had something nutritious in days.
What are you complaining about? Be grateful about your life.

You can still say I love you to your mom while others don`t even have both parents. What are you complaining  about? Be grateful for your friends, be grateful for your family, be grateful for your boring lectures...someone couldn’t get that time and chance to be in Varsity.

For the fact that you are Healthy while others live on medication should be sign that you have to be grateful.

Some of you have never been admitted to hospital, you don’t even know the hospital entrance but your complaining about your life being not perfect of life in general being not fair. Who told that life is FAIR?

For the fact that you are wearing something, you have eaten something in the morning, you have access to that computer while other people don’t even know the Space Bar button - in fact they have never pressed it in their lives.

Do yourself a favour, BE GRATEFUL!!!

GOD LOVES YOU.

An honest view of the South Afric...

The South African Poultry Association has made allegations that the increased US poultry imports will undermine the gains made by the local industry. I find this to be manifestly unfounded on a number of grounds. Read more...
