Mindful Monday: A Quote SO Relatable To All Of Us, It Hurts!

Hey y'all! So, I know it's been awhile, but I wanted to share something that's been on my mind lately. Virtually, EVERYONE has said this quote at some point in their lifetime, &, just recently, it started to slowly resonate with me. Here we go:

" However you wanna look at life, stay grateful. Someone'll always have it off WAY WORSE than you".


SO TRUE! Ya know, when I was younger, I'd always think it was weird when a stranger would be looking at me during a shopping trip, a school dance, or, really, just around my hometown. Other special needs families would constantly remind me how blessed I was, but I never wanted to brag about my life to make others feel bad about their situations.

You can't always change your life, but you CAN change how ya look at it!  Instead of concentrating on feeling guilty for what you DO have, give back! Donate your time, give away money from your paycheck to local charity, or organize a benefit to help special needs kids get the medical care they need.

NO MATTER WHAT, guys, SOMEONE is ALWAYS gonna have a horrible situation that you'll hear about. DON'T let that affect you. Jump into action instead!
