Instead of thinking about ourselves we should look around and be grateful for the lives we have. Were you able to sleep in a warm bed, feel safe and have something to eat before starting your day? Be thankful. In Winston-Salem, NC there are 24.8% or 227, 208 people living below the poverty line according to Data USA (2015). This is over 10% above the national average.
As you reflect upon your own life, consider the things you could undertake to help others. A lack of resources should not be an excuse. We all have things, talents and time would could give away and never miss. I challenge you and myself to be grateful and find a way to meet the needs of others. I guarantee you will discover a life you love.
