Count your Blessings

Count your Blessings

By Adam Mundorf

"It's not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor." -- Seneca

Count Your Blessings
Read that quote by Seneca again and really meditate on it for a few moments.  Do you go to the spigot and water comes out?  Do you choose what to eat everyday?  Do you have a roof over your head?  Even if you don't have the above, do you have a beating heart and a working brain?

You are more privileged than you know.....

Where there is life, there is hope.  In this country, we have plenty of life contrary to what the media wants you to believe.  Our basic needs are met.  We have the tools at our disposal to create a better life, it's our own mindset and actions that limits us.  Start by getting your mind right and simplifying your wants.  Look in the mirror and realize that you're responsible for your actions.  Start appreciating the fact we have what is required to create a better life.  Only through deep introspection can you truly define what that life looks like.

The fact you're reading this blog proves that you're more privileged than we know.  Information at your finger tips and the ability to make a more virtuous life.
