Day 294 – Appreciate The Basics

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted or halted critical mental health services in 93% of countries worldwide while the demand for mental health is increasing.” – World Health Organization (WHO)

The world is getting a little crazy now; businesses are closing, over a million homes are in forbearance, ports are at maximum capacity of ships waiting for their chance to unload the goods from supply chain shortages, mental health has deteriorated in many, and manhunts for killers have turned out finding more dead bodies. The world is very weird right now, however, it’s the perfect time to appreciate what you do have. With the upcoming holidays, the materialistic self takes over and wants to buy up everything. This is the perfect year to change that due to supply chain issues and possible income shortages people may be experiencing. Why do you need all that crap anyway? At the end of the day, think about what you’d want at the end of your life. I know that a pair of boots won’t be what’s on my mind. Instead, it’ll be my husband, family, and friends and of course my doggo Luna. I’m also appreciative of my health, the roof over my head, and my job. I can go on and think about all the negatives that have come out of the last two years and focus on what I don’t have, or I can be positive and focus on what I do have. Being crippled with negative thoughts and grim feelings only makes things worse for everyone. Before you go to bed tonight, say to yourself what you’re grateful for. When you wake up tomorrow morning, say to yourself “thank you for today” and be lucky to be alive.
