On the way to work this morning listening to the news it really hit home how lucky I am. I know back there in the recesses of my mind that comapred to a big portion of the world (we are the 1% when it comes to that) I have a very easy, great life. Usually I feel a lot of guilt about this but today I just felt gratitude.
I don’t know why I was lucky enough to be born in this country to parents who loved me and always provided for me. I don’t know why I was lucky enough to find a partner who loves me unconditionally and is very supportive. I don’t know if it is “luck”. Just chance, I guess.
Despite my health issues I am realtively healthy, and I’m able to get the care I need to take care of my issues. It’s doesn’t cause a financial burden on us for me to get my (expensive) daily medications or 90-day checkups. We have enough money to take care of all the things we need, and most of the things we want.
I have an awesome family, a loving husband, crazy (in a good way!) friends, and the happiest dogs. Whatever the cause, I am lucky or blessed.
I need to remember things like this more often.
