I am among one of the most privileged people to ever walk on the face of the earth. Odds are, you are too. Many of us live lives only kings used to dream of: cold beverage on-demand, a diverse menu of food available at any given moment, all of the information in the world at our fingertips, an understanding of Germ Theory and medicine, etc.
However, it’s easy to lose track of this point of view. I believe that I do a great job at keeping this in focus, although it can be draining if done constantly. For myself, the key is to devote time to remembering how lucky I am to live at this time in history, how loving my family & friends are, and how much potential I have for the remainder of my life. With this time of gratitude set aside for the appropriate settings (meditation, fellowship, journaling) , I give myself space to pursue purpose and intention for the rest of my life.
