Gratitude 75

Yesterday, I was noticing how privileged I am. That led me to research the guilt of being privileged. 

I get stuck in trying to justify being privileged while others are not. I realized that no matter what I come up with as an explanation to privilege, it doesn’t matter. What matters is “acknowledge it, appreciate it, don’t judge others, and do the best you can with what you’ve got.” (Pete Michaud)

I am privileged. I can choose between feeling guilty about this or just accepting and appreciating so that I can have a positive ripple effect around me.

I am still feeling guilty for being privileged sometimes but I am working on it. 

I am grateful I am privileged.
