The End of What?

Well here we are at the end of another year.
Are we any further ahead than we thought we would be?
Or do we find ourselves behind the proverbial 8 ball?

Personally I am a little of both.
After taking 6 months off for a ‘sabbatical’ this past year.
I find myself much further ahead in my own personal state of being.
But still a little behind the 8 ball, as are most people in the world
Some much worse than I.

Really what are my problems compared to others in the world?
They are miniscule, they are nothing.

We bitch about our jobs when others are even lucky to have a job.
We moan when someone else gets a promotion because we truly didn’t have the commitment to the job.

We are jealous of those who have more than us when we truly have so much more than others. One thing I have learned this past year is that it is all perspective. Those with more  are no happier than we are with less and there are so many more people out there much more unfortunate than us.

So truly think in this new year to make a change for yourself which in turn will help make a change in the world.  Think about someone less fortunate than you who works a lot for much less and never complains when you next bitch about your situation whatever it may be.

Compassion, peace and love is what I wish for in the year ahead and for many more to come.

Love and understanding
