Happy Memorial Day! Regardless of whether you live in the US or not, this week I’m pondering how grateful I am to be alive, and to have the things and pleasures in life I’ve been able to experience.
“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.”
-Franklin D. Roosevelt
Many of those who lived before us had to endure much graver circumstances and hardships than we will likely ever have to face.
Despite what you might think, global poverty is actually falling
and quality of life is increasing.
Wherever you find yourself in life, take a moment (yes right now) to think about all the things, people and experiences you have had or continue to have in your life. Just say to yourself “I’m grateful for ______” and I guarantee you’ll feel better.
If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants. -Isaac Newton
I appreciate you. 🙏
