If you look on April 13th's list you'll see that one of the things I was grateful for was being a part of the 1%. That day on twitter there was a little quiz going around (silly, I know) that you could take to see how "privileged" you are (the link to it is here). I took it just to pass time while I was getting a pedicure (the fact that I took it while I was doing that just goes to show...) on a day that I was really, really having a hard time. Even though it was all in good fun and quite meaningless it reminded me that I am so so lucky. The problems that keep me up at night are not near as large as some people in this world face and I am so lucky. It was a good reminder to me that even on my bad days people in the world would pray for the things I take for granted. 
"Cultivating a spirit of thanksgiving will change your life's perspective upside down"
