Perspective

Sometimes I feel as though I have ADD. I can’t seem to concentrate on one thing for more than a couple minute. I am drawn off subject at a whim, and cannot seem to focus. It could be that I am not interesting in what I am doing so I am looking for alternatives, it could be that I am a product of a society in which we get upset at waiting for even several seconds on the road, or at the checkout, etc, or maybe I am just writing this as another mechanism for escape of the endless proposal writing and research I have before me. Whatever it is I need to find a way to stop it.

Snipped from one of those “if the world was only the size of a village” emails:

    If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep…you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace, you are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.

I think I always try to remeber how lucky I am, even when I don’t feel like I am making a difference or accomplishing anything.
