Often our patterns, habits and dysfunctions repeat over and over again and we get stuck in the cycle of complaining and feeling sorry for ourselves. What one forgets is that it is a privilege to be alive, to live in a democratic country, to have the ability to work, to be able to take care of our families, to be a role model and to make an impact in our communities. There are sixty five million refugees around the world right now that have no homes and are struggling to get one meal a day, to find shelter and to stay alive.
If one looked at the Sunday newspaper obituaries section, they would discover that some of the people who passed away, were way to young and died due to an illness or an unexpected accident. I am sure they would gladly trade places with us. Sometimes we take life for granted, not realizing that this life is a privilege and not a right.
