I Appreciate the Little Things In Life

Notifications: · Newest First
I've been fairly depressed lately, in a passive and constant way. And that seems normal in society any more, not just here, but almost everywhere I go.

My one request on a day of reverence, is that we all take time, not to think about what we want and don't have, or what we had and couldn't keep. Think about all of the things in life that we're blessed with.

If I have a warm dry place to sleep, I'm blessed. If I have plenty of food to keep me full and functioning and ample ways to get more food available, I'm blessed. If I have hot and cold running water and indoor plumbing, I'm blessed with a luxury that most people 100 years ago could only dream of. If I'm able to simply press a few buttons on a mobile device and talk to people from all across the planet, I'm blessed with technology and the hard work of those who have came before me.

I personally think that it's our responsibility to appreciate what gifts we have and to take a moment to think about those without such blessing. If you're having a bad day, remember how good you actually live.[image=https://photos1.similarworlds.com/00/00/00/00/01/74/20/61/Notanymore-WYV7lozKU8iNAsM.jpg]

You are 100% correct! Truer words have never been spoken. Sometimes when I get really stressed I count my blessings. All of a sudden my blood pressure is down and life is looking good again. 馃

[@519030,Notanymore] Yes it is. We even have it better today the Carnigies and Rockefellers at their peak.

A-fucking-men. Indoor plumbing is something that many people in other countries still don't even have. It's so much easier to count your shortcomings or things you lack, over blessings. It's a good reminder to do so.

[@529463,AnarchoMetalchic] yeah.... it's crazy how much we take for granted that a few hours of air travel away would be a life-changing luxury

[@519030,Notanymore] When I visited Curacao, people there had cement homes with no glass in the windows, no doors that closed, and certainly no plumbing. To me, it was unimaginable to live that way. To them, they were happy as could be and didn't know any other life.

[@529463,AnarchoMetalchic] how blessed we truly are!
