The majority of people take things in their lives for granted.
The air that they breathe, the food that they eat, the car that they drive and the roof over their head.
These are just some examples of what people do not take time to be thankful for. It is easy to get caught up in the daily aspects of life and not to really be present and appreciative for what we have. Something that I noticed many people say in the summer and in the winter is that they are “stuck inside”. I do not like to hear this because usually people that say this are not truly stuck. They have the ability to leave their home and go to the store, go outside, go see friends, etc. Also, if they are lucky enough to have air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter they should be grateful that they have somewhere comfortable to live. There are many homeless people that would give everything to be “stuck inside” in a nice air conditioned house or a nice heated apartment. Sometimes people need to lose what they have to appreciate what they had. I don’t wish it upon anyone to lose out on their heating and cooling because that can cause many physical and mental problems. However, it would be nice to hear “I get to be inside in my beautiful heated home” rather than “I am stuck inside”. Sometimes our whole life can change based on changing our mindset. I am definitely grateful for everything I have including my air conditioning in the hot summer and heating in the cold winter.
