One of the Worst Things YOU DO!

WE ALL do it………….it’s so easy…………TAKING THINGS FOR GRANTED!

Why do we do it? Because we get caught up in life! Everyday activities take over and suddenly something that is special and major in our lives becomes forgotten (taken for granted)!

  1. An expected inheritance…..The old saying, “Don’t count your chickens until the eggs hatch.” is really good advice! Until you actually get the money in your hands, it isn’t a done deal…….maybe not even then if someone “disputes the will”! So taking expected good fortune for granted is not a good plan.
  2. I am in line for that job“, so I’ll go ahead and buy that bigger house now….why wait?! Indeed…………..guess what? The nephew of the boss or owner of the company just graduated and needs some nice place to work to support their daughter in style. Being more qualified or “in line for the job” doesn’t mean “squat”!
  3. I can always rely on Mom and Dad to take care of me……….and always being there for me…………..no example needed here…but…think today’s traffic, people on drugs, guns everywhere, etc.!!!!
  4. We’re young and just married and we will live happily ever after……………think heavy traffic, industrial accidents, terrorism, illness, boredom, depression………..
  5. Somebody does something for you regularly a. extra money b. extra support psychologically c. takes your kids to school daily d. brings you a pie once a month e. sends you a birthday card every year f. cooks your meals g. tells you that you look nice! Would you miss these things if they stopped?
  6. Perhaps the biggest and most dangerous mistake we make is taking those we love for granted!

I started to make a list of things here but after some thought…………YOU SHOULD STOP AND THINK ABOUT THOSE YOU LOVE AND THE THINGS IN YOUR LIFE AND HOW BLESSED YOU ARE THAT YOU HAVE THEM IN YOUR LIFE AND WHAT YOUR LIFE WOULD BE WITHOUT THEM IN IT!

DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE…….DON’T REGRET NOT DOING THIS OR THAT!

GET UP RIGHT NOW AND TELL THEM THAT YOU LOVE THEM AND APPRECIATE THEM AND ALL THAT THEY MEAN TO YOU!
