Sometimes we have to appreciate all things even if they are not exactly the way that we want them to be. Things are never going to 100% going to be perfect in our lives. We can appreciate all things, nonetheless. We, often times, get caught up in how (in our minds) we think things should be. This is an imperfect world, with imperfect people, with natural laws that make things hard (very hard). Is it not enough that we have love, have friends, have a life, have a job, have food on our tables? Those are many small miracles that get overlooked every day.
The more gratitude and appreciation we have for things, great and small, the more room that we create for more of the same. It is energy. Be in the energy of gratitude and you will create the space, more space, for more things to be grateful for.
