Things to be grateful!!
You probably know that long nights when you can't sleep and you get deep into your thoughts. Well I got one of those four days ago. I thought about how lucky I actually am that I can sleep every night in my bed with roof above my head. There are so many things that we take for granted, which some of people wouldn't even dare to dream of.
I'm going to start with most logical thing and about how we always complain how our phones are not working as they should or how our computers keep shutting down, when we don't even realize that there are people who can't even drink drinking water or they wear the same clothes for almost all of their lives. Do we even realize how lucky we are that we even got our *stupid* phone and lots of other similar stuff.
Second thing is school. Currently I'm kinda home schooled so it's not rare that I want to quit studying and don't want to deal with it for the rest of the day. But we should be more serious about it considering that in some countries they don't even let girls go to school. Besides there are countries where most of children can't read let alone write. So next time when you're doing work for school or studying for math exams just remember how lucky you are that you have the right to education. And don't worry I need to remind myself about this 5 times a day.
The third thing is (which I didn't think about before but the idea came to me after a talk with a friend) that of course we have some things that we like to change like freckles on your nose or the whole nose itself. But there are some people who will never experience stuff that we take for granted. When I have started having panic attacks I wanted to give everything to get rid of them. Luckily now I can stop them by listening to music. But what about those people who will never hear music, what about those who will never see how beautiful day is today. I don't write this to pity them but to respect them because they are true heroes.
List of related stuff goes on and on... but I think that we often forget things like that. So next time when you are going to have some trouble with your phone or studying just remember that there are worse things. So take advantage of the opportunities that are given to you. So this is my first post about my thoughts and I hope you will like it. Now I should go back to study history from which I have exam tomorrow. So fingers crossed.
See you soon
