DON’T Underestimate The Fact That You Have Advantages

In honor of Thanksgiving, I want to give a shout out to my homeboy F. Scott Fitzgerald, because not only is he the only writer I can relate to, but he offered the world some excellent life advice.

“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one…just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”

Whether you see it or not, you have advantages that others only dreamed of having. I used to think everyone grew up the same way I did, but that is not the case. There are people who never experienced a childhood because they were too busy taking on adult responsibilities, and there are people who are forced into getting victimized by poverty. If you are a poor American, that sucks, but try being poor in a third world country where you don’t have running water, or a clean pair of shoes. I want you to realize that even though there are many components of life that suck you still have advantages, and you should be grateful for them. With that said here is a bunch of shit I am truly thankful for.

  1. My sense of humor- I use this to calm myself down and use it to get me out of trouble.
  2. My mother and father- I am truly blessed to have my parents. I fight with them a lot LOL but I am so lucky to have two crazies that love me unconditionally. 
  3. My friends-duhhh
  4. My good health
  5. My intelligence
  6. MY BLOG! 🙂 and meeting the idiot that gave me the inspiration for the name!

What are you thankful for??
