I recently watched an awesome video online. The video was the family’s Christmas card where they shared all of their accomplishments of the past year while dancing and singing in their Christmas pajamas. Here’s the video.
After watching the video I started to read the reactions from people and came across this one. This is only one of many comments from this gentleman.
This man is obviously triggered by this family. His reaction actually has nothing to do with this family and how awesome they are, how they accomplished so much and seem to be living the dream all while having a lot of fun. It has everything to do with him feeling that he is a sad loser living his sad little life and because he doesn’t have the things this family has. Since he’s not grateful for what he has in his life it means they deserve to be hated on because they are grateful for the good fortune in their lives…and 166 people agreed with him.
The fact is no one is better than anyone else. We’re all in this thing called life together.
Why not celebrate each other’s accomplishments instead of being victims who are pissed because they don’t have what other people have?
Why not be grateful for all that we have in our lives right here right now instead of focusing on what we don’t have like the man did? If you can feel gratitude even in the tiniest way it allows you to be present and happy. Otherwise you are always going to be wanting more and more.
Let’s take a moment to send this man some love.
The family from the video shared with us they are very proud of their lives right here right now by showing us their new Prius, how awesome their kids are and that the wife got a part in a major movie.
It’s not bad to brag about the things you are proud of. It’s a good thing.
I’m inspired by all the awesome you have in your life and I want to hear about it.
