Don’t Take For Granted What Other People Are Wishing For
Our frame of reference is relative. Our aspirations are within the context of what we’ve learned is possible based on our environments. Our challenges and problems are perceived through the lens of other challenges we’ve experienced. The human experience is a full spectrum but we only taste our own sliver of it, and we acclimate to that level over time.
This is where having a broadened perspective can be really helpful. Instead of narrowly seeing life as it is in front of you, you can be more self-aware of your position relative to others. This helps you gain insight into the blessings you have in your life that are underappreciated, the resources and opportunities you have access to that have become expected, and all of the things you’re taking for granted.
Don’t take for granted what other people are wishing for. As you're breathing right now, there are people all over the world that are on ventilators because they can’t breathe for themselves. Their wish is to breathe comfortably again. You might be reading this while you’re driving in traffic (hopefully not!), there are people not so far from you right now who desperately desire easier transportation. Virtually everything around you is an example of something that you’re privileged to have that someone, somewhere, really wants for themselves.
You can honor these blessings and privileges with gratitude. Finding times to be present and observing the comforts of your life. Making an effort to make the most of the incredible tools you have at your fingertips. Believe it or not, there are people who would want to trade places with you.
I understand that this is all easier said than done. You’ve grown accustomed to the way that things are, and therefore you don’t really notice it anymore. But that’s where I want to challenge you to prove this concept to yourself right now. Look around you and find one thing that you have, or that you can do, that other people would wish was possible for themselves?
