Friday Frills - Life is a Privilege


Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, 
But in time you’ll realize they do, perfectly. 

 So thank the situations that didn’t work out for you, 
Because they just made room for the situations that will. 

 And thank the people who walked away from you, 
Because they just made room for the ones who won’t.

No matter how good or bad you think you have it, 
Wake up each day thankful for your life. 
Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. 

 Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, 
Think about what you have that everyone else is missing.

Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive in your own shoes...
To breathe a fresh breath, to think another thought, to enjoy a new moment, 
To have options – then go out and make the day count.

Sometimes I don't understand why some things didn't work out at the time, and than when I finally realise the reason why something didn' hapen the way I thought it should have hapened, I am sooooo surprised and astonished how things just fit perfectly, without my assistance and all... Someone above works i misterious ways...

Hello dear Sam, Would that be wonderfully if those pretzel are just fit right in with no matter what size and shape they are but the truth is, it takes only smart and small group of people who willing to work them fit, some people are give up so quickly and not willing to learn how to make them fit. Life is all about challenges:). You and I are knows exactly what I'm trying to say here. wishing you a really lovely Friday and weekend ahead:).

Kim Alston said...

Definitely let go of people that don't want to be in your life. It makes room for those that want to be there.

A beautiful, inspirational post dear! Thanks for the reminder to appreciate every moment and season in life, I needed this. I can't seem to understand the season I am in now but I'm learning to appreciate it and know everything will fall into place and will make sense

Thanks dear

Denise Sabs said...

Dear Sam, it's really so refreshing and uplifting to have your Friday frills! Yes, life is a privilege, for sure. And yes, we have to be glad for the ones who walk away, cause then we have space for positive vibes again. And I totally agree with you about think about the ones who have less and would love to have what you have. I never take things for granted. I always thank for all the luck and donate what I think people will need more than myself. I'm not perfect, of course, but I try to be a good human being! I read it - you know what I mean - and will give my opinion on Monday! Have a great weekend! denisesplanet.com
