27 Little Freedoms We Take For Granted Every Day


It’s pretty easy to find things to complain about in life.

You whine about your terrible job. You get miffed when they run out of kale at the salad place.

You trip when your phone only has 16 percent battery. You stamp your feet when the movie is sold out.

Yes, all these annoyances sure do make life hard, don’t they?

Think about the things you complain about and then take a minute to catalog all the times in a day you get irritated by something or someone.

When you think about it, none of these things will mark the end of the world. Are you going to die if you don’t have a salad today? Is WWIII going to break out if the movie you want to see is sold out?

It's time to take a minute and look at the big picture. It's time to be grateful for everything we have because, seriously, we are so incredibly lucky.

We have so many freedoms we don’t fully appreciate. We really should. Life is good. Life is beautiful. Look around you and take a minute to treasure everything you have.

Here are 27 little freedoms we take for granted every day:
