This weekend kind of sucked.
First of all, we had that crazy idiot who did what he did in Aurora.
This really put things into perspective for me.
Secondly, I was in a car accident.
Again, this really put things into perspective for me.
Upon entering the workforce, I’ve witnessed a lot of things, both good and bad.
But the one thing that’s been most noticible during my experience with the “real world” is that people are generally unhappy.
People are unhappy about something and/or everything.
This is unfortunate and it’s stupid.
Through my research regarding Generation Y, I’ve been able to find plenty of articles that explain that my generation is the most unhappy of all. During a time in which we’re trying to discover ourselves, we’re faced with so many decisions that need to be made and we don’t know how to make them.
This makes us sad.
This makes us depressed.
Then we’ve got all the other generations…
It seems that at work, complaining about stuff is the cool thing to do.
“I can’t believe I wasn’t invited to that meeting”
“I hate my boss”
“Jack didn’t cc me on that e-mail. How dare he?”
If these are the worst of our worries, I think we’re doing okay.
Let’s stop sweating the small stuff, alright?
I think that’ll make the world a much more pleasant place to live in and it shouldn’t take a tradgedy or a near-death experience to realize this.
We should feel grateful for what we have, every day.
So next time you’re unhappy and you’re discussing one of the following:
- how your life is terrible
- how you want to punch your boss in the face
- how your life is over and you have no reason to live
Stop and think for a second.
Then kick yourself for being so dumb.
If you’re reading this, CONGRATULATIONS!
You’re alive and you have eyeballs!
And that, my friends, is enough reason to be happy.
