I saw this for the first time the other day and saved it to my desktop. It's good to be reminded of how good I have things:

First World Problems read by Third World People



Not being critical of anyone, I just think its good to keep things in perspective. It was a good reminder to stop my whining, and I thought I'd share.

i don't have a chance to check out the video but i have no doubt how good i have it. scrapbooking/crafting and the mass buying/hoarding is a luxury most people in this world can't comprehend. there are people who barely exist on $1/day and i'm ashamed i can spend that on 1 sheet of paper without blinking. i have no doubt i have it good. i appreciate what i have, i am very mindful of what an indulgence it is.

Good video! Thanks for sharing, was actually talking about the topic with BFF at lunch today. Picture the two middle aged suburbanites over sandwiches and soup at Panera, and she's complaining about havnig gotten a new kitchen table and chairs then realizing she should store the old set so her young adult sons can use the (perfectly good_ table and chairs in future living situations...yep, that conversation launched us right into 1st world problems. We are so clueless about how good we have it, eh?
