Most people complain about their bills. They complain about the struggle and how expensive life is. How they never have any money left to enjoy life. I know because I used to be one of those people.
I've learned to say "Thank You" for having the money to pay my bills even if it leaves me with nothing left. I know what it is like to feel the stress and worry of not having what I need. I know what it feels like to have that sick to your stomach feeling when the phone rings and its the landlord, to not know how your going to get to work because the car has no gas and you have no bus money. I know what it is like to open the fridge door three to four times in hopes of finding something to eat but realizing it is empty.
The attitude of genuine gratitude always makes way for opportunities and roads to open that allow for more blessings to enter. So these days when I get the opportunity to pay a bill, I see it as just that, an opportunity - one that I do not take for granted. Now when I get money in and I know I can pay something on time, I get excited, I say thank you, shoot, when I can pay bill I want to high five the world! ~Will "Story" Rivera
You may now want to wake up this morning, it may be early, you may not be feeling well, you may be tired from a long day of work, you may be comfortable, you may hate your daily routine, regardless - find the will to master your emotions and learn to say thank you in those moments.
Thank you for waking up to another day. Thank you for having the money to pay that bill (even if was the last of it). Thank you that you have family family, friends and pets who are safe and well. Thank you for the warmth, water, clothes and a choice to change your circumstances if you do not like what you see.
Just say Thank you. There are too many moments we take for granted. Too many choices go not chosen. So many others in this world who are experiencing far worse and do not have the ease of opportunity like you do. ~Will "Story" Rivera
Where you are in life now, was not a sole effort. From the time you were conceived you were a seed, since then you have been given seeds. Seeds of direction, hope, discouragement, love etc. your journey to where you are now was never a sole effort.
There have been people (good and bad) working with you and behind the scenes who have made a significant impact as to where you are now.
I strive to never take these people lightly. I am fully aware of the fact that the reason I am where I am is because of the fierce souls God has placed to watch over me, encourage me, teach me, support me - honestly none of this was ever done alone and for this I am ever grateful. ~Will "Story" Rivera
My own personal success is everything. Like the phoenix I am reborn and the hustle never stopped, I just was transforming, evolving, growing into a better version of myself, making sure I was ready for this next level of spiritual growth. Greatness never sleeps. ~Will "Story" Rivera
