Gratefulness

It is important to be grateful for all the things you have and not take things for granted, easy right? Well the western world has much to be grateful for and yet we are some of the most self-centered inconsiderate people going, fresh clean water, food on the table, a roof over our heads, we invade poorer countries who were getting along ok developing themselves and basically take away everything they have worked for..and for what? Its all very well wanting to spread democracy and equal rights for all, but there are peoples homes have been destroyed, they don’t have food, water, power, they may not have had much of these things before but theave even less. The fine rich people living in LA oblivious to the situation of third world poverty in their own city…they may mock rappers who complain they had a difficult start in life but its true, I dont see how you not be grateful for what you have when there are people who have so little and yet they are more grateful despite their disadvantages, as the western society becomes more conscious we should be grateful for what we have and less damning of other people who have less than us.
I am grateful for everything my parents have given me, the strength to get through university and the love and devotion of my family.
I am grateful for the friends I have who are there and support me in my goal for happiness and who scold me when I feel down and worthless.
I am grateful for all the people I have met who inspired me to achieve my goals and given me the support to get started.
I truly hope that I can inspire people to do the same and I am always grateful to hear about how people have achieved their goals, I also love to help other people if you need help, advice, an ear to bend, a kind word I am here to help.
