Being Grateful

Assalamualaikum,

"Don't be sad. You can't have everything."
Somehow, the phrase I wrote in my 2011 planner seems to speak the other way: "Be happiest for the smallest you have". That is to be grateful.

Times were spent to worry and we all know that most of the thing that falls in the worry list is unnecessary. We worry about family, friends, career, spouse, exs, past and future, life and death, etc. We use the 4W1H to almost everything - finding holes and gap, pointing to what's less and missing. Then, somewhere between the lines we find way to blame ourselves. Maybe we are not good enough, maybe we did not put much effort, and maybe we did it the wrong way, maybe and more maybe.

What is left in an ungrateful being?
An empty soul.

Wassalam.
