Counting Your Blessing

As of today I'm officially 18 years old.  To tell you the truth I honestly feel the same. I mean I do realize that I am more mature than last year but to me I've always considered my self to be an old soul.  Having said all of that I have definitely reached an epiphany this year. Ready for it ....


Now this may sound like something of such simplicity but in actuality it will make you appreciate what you have by that much more. I know I'm not the only one who has ever seen those kids in the world vision commercials rifling through piles of trash just to get one scrap of food. Meanwhile, many of us in privileged are so quick to throw out good food without a second thought. Listen, I'm not perfect and I've been known to do this a few times before but change begins with one person so why not make that you. 

So next time you go to complain about your "First World Problems" consider someone else around the world that has to consider some real problems. Food for thought eh ;)
