We are Very Lucky

Gratitude is a beautiful thing. If we’re struggling with depression or an eating disorder it can be really hard to remember what is good in our lives. But if you are reading this it means you’re already in the top quarter of people on the planet because you have a smart phone. You have electricity to charge your phone. You can read. You’re alive at a time when people are starting to talk about mental illness openly. This isn’t to say you “shouldn’t” feel depressed. We live in a world that encourages feelings of scarcity and insecurity, and it’s no surprise so many of us struggle. Yet in the face of that we can stop and remember what we have to be thankful for, and while it’s not a “cure,” it helps. What are you thankful for today?
