#FML - This is my most hated hashtag on Twitter. Why? Because no one should ever hate themselves that much that they say 'Fuck my life'. Life is a gift. Sometimes we aren't happy with our lives, but hey - we have the opportunity in ourselves to do everything that we can do change them. 

Yes, I've been complaining a lot recently about the Gaga injustice, and I know that a lot of my readers think that it's probably pretty trivial (and it probably is, but I won't give up fighting for something that I believe is right) ... but I've seen people complaining that their life sucks, that they hate their life.

If your life sucks - fucking do something about it! We are all in charge of our life path, and our own destiny. If you're not happy, you are the only person who can do something about it. No one else.

Honestly, if you have a roof over your head, you have a job, you have an education and you have a little bit of money - you have nothing to complain about. If you have a family who loves you, you have friends that would do anything for you, you have nothing to complain about.

Why not take a moment to stop and think about those who don't have money, those who go hungry every night. Those that don't have access to an education. Those who will never even leave their city, or their own country, let alone travel the world. Those who live on less than $2 a day. Those who rely on the generosity of people who have a salary that donate money to charities around the world so that they can just have a meal at night, and a place to rest their worried head.

A very wise woman once said, "Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need." (Gillian Anderson) - honestly if you could get into these shelters, or even use your money to travel to Africa to see some real human struggles - then you could tell me that you have something to truly complain about.

How much money did you donate to charity last year? If your answer is none (because you had no money) - then that is the only acceptable answer I will take. If your answer is none, because you spent it on other trivial things that made you happy for a little while, and then went back to being unhappy with your life... my advice to you, donate a portion of that money to a charity and help change someone elses life.  It may not make you happier, but it will empower you just a little, knowing that you are bringing happiness to someone else.
