Is life really so bad?
Is life really so fucked up?
Ok, yes, it is quite fucked up.
Is it not also rather pleasant?
Is it not also incredibly beautiful?
Is it not also extremely miraculous?
When you stop regurgitating the bullshit narratives fed to you by society over and over again in your mind.
When you consider that we live in one of the freest, safest and richest periods in human history.
When you simply put down your phone and look.
Do we not, in fact, have a great deal more to be grateful for given the odds of our very existence are so infinitesimally small?
You know the answer to this question of course.
The problem is you keep forgetting don’t you?
Which is why you’ve got to keep reminding yourself of how truly fortunate you really are.
It’s why you have to practise gratitude every opportunity you can.
It’s why you have to make being thankful a way of life.
