โ€œJoy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognise how good things really are.โ€ - Marianne Williamson ๐Ÿ’œ
Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in your own stuff and forget your privilege. Like now for example, if you're reading this on your smart phone, then you've probably paid for that at some point and you're living in a country where the government hasn't blocked your access... ๐ŸŒ
Try not to let problems get overwhelming so that they feel bigger than me really are in the overall picture. ๐ŸŒ
Don't get so caught up in some #firstworldproblem that you forget how incredibly fortunate you are for the little things that we take for granted - even Instagram! #itsthelittlethings โ˜บ
I have to remind myself of that some days. Like last week when I was losing my shit over a little email. Seriously, there are days with #chronicpain flare ups when I wish an email was my biggest problem! ๐ŸŒ
We all have crappy days for different reasons but a little global #perspective has always been a way for me to get over myself (and my problems) really quickly. ๐ŸŒŽ
I think that started when I was younger and grew up watching a lot of International news and current affairs at home. Soapies were banned in our house. ๐Ÿ˜‚
We were messy, happy kids but we weren't ignorant to the fact that there was a big wide world out there and I couldn't wait to grow up and explore it. ๐Ÿ’™
