Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not but remember that what you have NOW was among the things you only HOPED for.
This is not to say that we should not want more out of life but in my opinion that we should respect and appreciate the things that we are currently blessed with, not taking them for granted while we are striving for better. For instance (in my own little life), I want a better house however I’m thankful for the house I currently have. I am thankful to have a roof over my head. I will not neglect my house and will still care for, clean, decorate and maintain it while I’m also looking for a new one.
Appreciate and respect the things you have. Do not take them for granted.
