Appreciate all of the things you have; because somewhere out there, there is someone who has less than you or nothing at all. During Hurricane Sandy I learned a lot about life and how no one should take it for granted. I had a lot of time to think about my life and reevaluate myself, since I didn't have any power. During this time with no power I realized that I have taken advantage of it and I didn't really realize that until now.
Whether it was leaving the computer on or plugged in when I wasn't using it or maybe getting upset when I didn't have anything to watch on TV ( a lot of people may not have a TV to watch stuff). The point is everyone should be grateful for watch they because life is too short. "Life is not always greener on the other side" There are more important things in life and I understand that. I am not saying that I take or took things for granted, but I learned that there are so much more. I will admit that I took electricity for granted at times, but not anymore. I was freaking out because I didn't have power for almost two weeks, then I stopped and thought about people who don't even have a home. I appreciate life so much more and the little things that may seem so small are the things that are big and matter most.
I hope you enjoyed reading this!
