There sure is enough complaining and insulting going around these days in the political arena whether it is south of the border or right here in our backyard.
We are inundated daily with critical news from all the major media outlets, whether we want it or not.
Just looking at the fluctuating hour by hour gas prices can make us feel down.
So for a lot of people it is too easy to forget what we have and what a great country we live in.
We are the 4th best country in the world!!
4th out of 195 countries. The top 2%.
So why are we not thankful everyday for what we have and the country we live in?
Well I would say, it is because of the times. We have been conditioned to want more and more. That what we have is never good enough. This causes many of us are to be depressed whether we admit it or not.
So we live in constant need rather than in abundance. The glass is always half empty.
We are never grateful or thankful.
But the good news is we can change that by changing our attitude, and the way we look at our life.
It means waking up grateful and thankful every day, for what we have, our health, our family, our quality of life, our freedom.
People in many countries live in despair because they don’t have what we have. They all want what we have and that is why they want to come here.
“Canada is the homeland of equality, justice and tolerance.” – Kim Campbell, former Canadian Prime Minister.
Our forefathers and foremothers worked hard to give us what we have today. They protected it with their lives.
Let’s not let them down by being critical about the little things – focus on the big picture – that is what is important.
And the big picture is Canada.
So this Canada Day, be thankful.
We are so fortunate to live in this great country.
Never forget it.
“There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured and generous-hearted people.” – Sir Winston Churchill
Happy Canada Day everyone!
