Go ahead, take it for granted…

It’s something often said… Men are all the same. I think the reason for this is that they really give us more reason to believe that than what they give us reason not too. That being said, women are also all the same. So when you complain about the usual stuff there is some common ground.

So when you actually finally meet someone man or women, that is willing to go above and beyond for you and actually enjoy things most others would complain about, would you consider yourself lucky? Would you consider yourself fortunate? Would you then try and be an even better you to accommodate that person? Or would you simply take it for granted? “I am who I am” …Forget that you are fortunate to not have reason to complain?

…. Very sad, but even given everything on a platter without having to go to any effort, you’ll no doubt not see it. You’ll just shrug it off, say “oh well, I can’t help it”… And you’ll say those words right up to the point where you loose what is given to you so freely on a platter, and you’ll be left wanting.

Don’t complain then! Don’t complain when you are without! Life is short, your window to have the things you love and can indulge in is brief.

  1. I couldn’t of said it better myself. Unless we have had a reality check with our past: Referring to hardships or loss of someone we loved, we DO often take for granted what we have. I, not for one day, take for granted the loving husband, God has blessed me with. After a hard life of learning and being in the Autumn of my life: I’ll embrace every moment. Great post and needed to be said, to remind people. God Bless You, Barb

  2. I would have to agree with you. Life is too short. Be grateful for all that you have; for one day, it’ll all be gone. Remember that you’re never alone in the universe and if anything else, remember to smile.

    Corny I know, but it’s worked for me. Blessings to you and yours.

    Just found this interesting post and would like to share with you. I do agree that when someone is willing to go above and beyond for you, then you should really treasure that someone. Who knows? He or she might have to leave you one day…

  4. This is very true and also very sad. Sad that people can take the beautiful things in life for granted and then turn them ugly!
