This post inspired by something I read in the comments of some other person's blog:
The only thing you are entitled to in life are food, clothing and shelter. And you're entitled to those only if you live in a "civilized" country. Everything else is just icing on the cake. Are you bitching because you don't have everything you want? Well, shut up. You're alive. You have food, clothing and shelter. Nobody owes you anything in life. God doesn't owe you anything, either.
So often people just don't realize how good they really have it in life. There's too much greed. And not enough love to go 'round for everyone. Get busy appreciating.
