I cannot get over it. I have been blessed with so much and have done so little on this earth. It really humbles you… and empower you at the same time to do better. I’ve learned over time that material things and fame do not define happiness. Even though I “knew” that while growing up… it never really hit me in the right way until recently. Now that I am way past my teen years and all the self struggles that I’ve had between me and my peers are starting to go away little by little, I’m starting to see life as it really is.
Yes material things make you feel good. I love having money… but only because you need it in today’s world to pay for things and afford nice things here and there… but it definitely doesn’t define me.
Two of the things that define a person, in my opinion, is realizing the things he/she has been blessed with and helping one another through life.
It really humbles you when you go through tough times and have people help you… and appreciate those who have picked you up along the way regardless of how small or big the things they did for you. It makes you wanna help someone else who might be struggling… in that way, you not only help that person… you also become a wealthy (in the sense of wisdom).
That’s what it’s all about, man. Making a difference.
