Its funny the things we take for granted, fail to appreciate, or focus all our gratitude towards. Its the food we expect immanently. the beauty of a newly influenced perspective, and the material possession. Its easy to overlook the meal were eating, as its always there, and we didn't have to do anything for it, other than a quick fiver, or boil a pot. We focus on our iPod, or Blackberry, as it is a cool material possession, as well as connection to the world we know. Well what about the world we don't know?
When I haven't eaten all day, I begin to rationalize and prioritize. It really puts shit into perspective, and makes me appreciate and see things differently.
Then I jump on google and find out almost 1/2 of the world doesn't know when their next meal will be......
I have an iPod, computer, cool gadgets. When I'm cold, hungry and tired, none of that shit matters in the slightest bit.

Maybe we should think about these things, even if they're sometimes intangible.
Or maybe that not everyone has the same opportunities we do, and we should consider ourselves lucky, instead of judging them as beneath us....

I know I didn't always think like the way I do now, and every day Im learning more and more about myself, and the people around it.

Change your thoughts and you change your world. Change your world, and you can change someone elses. Change someone else's and you can change the world.
