I was sitting at school 2 days ago and chatting with 2 people from my class. The girl was complaining about how people in her home country had to dodge bombs and kidnappings and she could not understand why people in North America worried so much when they ate 3 meals a day, lived in safe and comfortable homes and had easy access to health care.
I thought she had a point. Why do people get upset when life is good? Why do they react as if the minor details in their lives are life or death situations?

It is human nature to dwell on the have-nots, instead of what we do have.
I definitely get caught up in what I DON'T have, then I realize that when I take a deep breath and truly observe my life, the life essentials I definitely have.
Damn consumerist capitalistic mentality gets us all from time to time. Make sure to exhale and be grateful for what you DO have!0
