Learn to Treasure What You Have Got
The biggest weakness of human nature is that they don't know how to treasure what has been achieved.This is exactly the reason why we always think that "the grass is greener on the other side of the fence",and also the explanation to most of the betrayals and regrets in life.We won't be conscious of how important something is until the moment we lose it.
The fatal shortcoming is reflected in our childhood.A kid may easily get fond of other kids'toys and begin to treat his own ones like garbage.A little girl may burst into tears when another kid takes one of her dolls away,even if she does not like this doll at all before the robbery.As grown ups,we still can't stop scrambling for dolls.Sarcastically,it's uncertain whether they are really that priceless to us or not.
The Bible has never failed to teach people to learn the true meaning of treasure and gratitude.But it seems that few of us are good students.Sometimes we suddenly realize what we have is precious,but the satisfaction will not last for long.We forget about it the next day,and begin our greedy,endless hunt again for what we haven't got yet.
Maybe it's hard to change human nature.So the only thing we can do is to remind ourselves to be grateful again and again,and learn lessons from bitter regrets time after time.A grateful mood is difficult to keep for we are too forgetful to the pains we have suffered,but as long as we can feel the gratitude,we will begin to relish our life.
An easily satisfied person is always the one who is easy to be happy.We all know the following story.
A vagrant is lying on the bench,enjoying the sunshine.A millionaire comes to ask him,"Why don't you go to work and make some money?" "Why should I?" "Then you can come back and enjoy the sunshine more comfortably!" Butthe vagrant answers,"Now I am comfortable enough,so it's not necessary to go to work at all." The interesting story just wants to show us that the "well being" standard of your life is determined by your attitude.Anyway,enjoyingyourownbeautifulgreen grass with gratitude is far more satisfying than envying your neighbor's.
