Being thankful is something most people seem to forget about , being grateful and feeling happy is very rare these days. This topic have been discussed many times before yet not many learn from it.
I have realized over the past year the I don't appreciate the blessings that i have in my life enough and that made me feel selfish and ungrateful. It is human nature to always want more , maybe it comes off as greediness nevertheless , we wish good things for ourselves whether it be fashionable clothes, expensive cars or vacations every now and then . It isn't necessarily bad neither a good thing.
A holiday every year might be a normal thing for you but a much unfortunate person considers traveling every three to four years as a luxury. Allah said (لئن شكرتم لازيدنكم) which translates to " If you are grateful , i will add more ( favours ) unto you", simple as that. Don't think you're superior to others because you have a better car model or alot richer, nothing lasts forever be thankless and you will be left with nothing but regret.
Truly appreciate what you have and always wish the best for others. Arrogance never benefited anyone.
