Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you can appreciate some of the things in your life, maybe even appreciate life. And rock bottom isn’t fun. Still, maybe more people who have too much and still don’t appreciate what they have should hit it. Maybe everyone should at least once in their life.
Is this a cruel thought? I would rather believe it a very important lesson, a valuable one that often the people who need it the most don’t get. And sometimes the people who do get this “gift” don’t see it for what it is. Instead they want to see it as something harsh and even life ending instead of life altering.
Rock bottom. I am beginning to think most people don’t appreciate life let alone the things if brings to them including the lessons, especially the hard ones.
Sometimes when times get difficult it would be a good idea to take a breath then look around at the world. Even at the things you think don’t look pleasant. You might find some very beautiful things to look at. You might hear some too. Or smell some.
