I've been thinking a lot lately, and I have come to a decision. Most of us are very very lucky! It's easy to look at the problems and issues that we have in our day to day lives and think "Life sucks!" or "Life is hard!", but really, life is just grand!
Three weeks ago, my fiance gave birth to my son. The labour was long and hard, and in the end, he had as assisted delivery. If this had been even fifty years ago, both my fiance and baby would not have survived. However, with modern medical aid, we were out of the hospital in 48 hours.
Even as I type this out, I think back to 15 years ago. There was no internet. At least not like it exists now. Now we have access to limitless information. We can connect with people and form relationships that used to be impossible! Cancer and AIDS are not always the death sentence that they once were. We have access to almost all of the art, music, movies, and TV that EVER was. We can travel halfway around the world in less than a day in relative comfort.
This day and age has its issues for sure, but all in all, it's a pretty amazing time to be alive. I am so thankful to be in the here and now. The world is truly a glorious place! Embrace it!
