Forgive Me When I Whine – Read This BEFORE You Whine

personal finance, money management, whining, god forgive me when i whine

I first heard this from Og Mandino in an audio book about success.

It made me reflect on the things I whine about.

Those are small and petty things compared to the blessings I receive each day.

So, let me know what you feel when you read this:

Today upon a bus, I saw a lovely girl with golden hair, I envied her, she seems so gay and wished I were as fair, when suddenly as she rose from her seat I saw her hobble down the aisle. She had one leg and wore a crutch, but as she passed, a smile. Oh God forgive me when I whine, I have two legs, the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy,the lad who sold it had such charm I talked to him he seemed glad, if I were late it will do no harm. And as I left he said to me, thank you, you’ve been so kind. It’s nice to talk with folks like you, he said “I’m blind”. Oh God forgive me.when I whine, I have two eyes, the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street I saw a child with eyes so blue watching the others play, he did not know what to do. I stopped and said “Why don’t you join the others dear?” He looked ahead without a word and then I knew, he couldn’t hear. Oh God forgive me when I whine, I have two ears the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I go, with eyes to see the sunsets, with ears to hear what I would know. Oh God forgive me when I whine, I’m blessed indeed the world is mine

Did you feel guilty?

Did you feel ashamed of yourself?

Haha I guess that’s normal if we don’t consciously count our blessings every day 🙂
