📍Loch Leatham, Isle of Skye, Scotland 🏴
So here we are six posts in and finally an end to my gratitude list! Who knew I was grateful for so much 👀 well I think I dragged the reasons on a bit but fuck it.
I’m grateful of where I come from. You don’t realise it but we’re privileged coming from where we do. We complain about irrelevant shit on expensive phones when we have no right with what happens in Afghanistan, Syria, Congo, Myanmar, Sudan, Central America, Xingjang, Palestine etc. We have it easy. We have it good. Most don’t even have a clue at how many people suffer without basic things. Food, water. I’m extremely grateful for that. We wouldn’t last ten minutes in some shoes.
We have the audacity of Josef Fritzel to complain, I am not exempt. I am as guilty as anyone but literally break it down what are we complaining about? I complain about loneliness, bad luck with girls, not being abroad. Things that will mean fuck all in two years.
These people face fucking persecution, separation, starvation, death etc and we have the nerve to complain about what we do? Most of our complaining is on what a £1000 iPhone? Count your blessings our problems are fucking minuscule.
But they’re ours. We’re selfish and it’s out of sight out of mind right.
I’m grateful for my potential. It’s as huge as Jeff Bezos’s wealth. We all know how huge that is right 😏
I’m grateful for my future. It’s gonna be an incredible fun ride.
Last one. I’m grateful for Oreos 👀❤️
I advise anyone who’s having a low day, week or whatever take an hour in silence and have a good think and write down what you’re grateful for.
