Hi Keith! Moving to San Diego opened my eyes to an issue that I didn’t give nearly enough thought to before – homelessness. There are so many people here struggling to get by who probably don’t see it as the paradise that I do. Knowing how stressed and imbalanced I get when I’m low on cash, it breaks my heart to think of the daily lives these truly impoverished people live. But acknowledging everything that these people do not have also gave me a new appreciation for what I have, and often take for granted: a clean bed, hot water, fresh food.
I would love to be able to share this enlightening new gratitude of what we have, instead of focusing on what we don’t have, with others, including yourself.
