The Boring Cycle of Life

I guess I’m just like everyone else.  I wake up, I go to work, I go home, and I take care of my kids, and start the same cycle over again.  Every day I’m kind of hoping for a miracle to happen, or something or someone to pull me from this cycle.  It’s like wishing on a star that I would win the lottery, or some really rich relative would find me.  But of course none of that ever happens.  So, here I am again today doing the same thing, living in this same cycle.  This week I was working on being thankful.  It’s so hard to appreciate the things I have in life.  Maybe that is because I am so used to having them.  I do pray every day for the things God has blessed me with.  I try to remember to be thankful, but I wonder if I truly am thankful.  I am always looking for more.  Someone this week opened my eyes to this phrase “I used to complain about having no shoes, until I met a man with no feet.”  So, this week I have been working on being thankful and thanking God for all of my blessings.

Yes, I have been through the cycle. I know exactly what you aretalking about. What I am trying to work on is not thinking about the begining or the end but concentrate on the middle, on the now. I have found it the hardest job of all. The now. Do I like it? Do I feel happy with what I have got? In a way, the cycle is all we have got, it is just a matter of whether we ejoy the ride.
