Today I turn 30. I woke up and my first thoughts were those of gratitude, which immediate turned into thoughts of empty mess and sadness.
The first few minutes I thought about what I don’t have. How many things I didn’t accomplish and how many things I’d like to have, but then I realized I’m already amongst the top percentage in the world because of the the things I do have:
So today and for the rest of my life I want to reflect on the thing I do have. The will be the fuel that drives me to make a great impact:
- A loving Heavenly Father who gave his only Son to die for me and I’m not ashamed of my faith.
- An amazing wife.
- A baby boy on the way
- A family that love me
- Growing up in a fully functioning family
- Having a place to work at and earn a living
- Being able to work from anywhere
The list can be even more elaborate and this blog post is raw( unedited) but I need to get into the habit of publishing more often.
Thanks for reading!

Agreed. We need to know how much is enough. Then balance the rest. We are on the same page.
Congrats on your birthday!
Well said Dwain! We are blessed beyond measure, because of who we have not because of what we have. So good to have you:)
