Dear friends and colleagues,

Here is a thought I shared with my team and wanted to pass it on…

 Keeping Perspective

We like to compare our lives to those of people we think are richer, smarter, happier, better looking, and more famous.  Why don’t we have a house like the couple’s down the street?  Why aren’t we doing better at work?  Why can’t we find the love of our life?

We forget that these are plenty of people who look on us with envy.  They would really like to have our job, live on our block, or enjoy our personal freedom.  When we hear them talk about the things we take for granted, we remember that we have it pretty good after all.

It sounds corny, but it does help to “count my blessings” so I can pay attention to all the good things in my life.
