1. You are smart.

We can discern this fact – and yes, it is a fact – because you can read.  Only literate people read blogs AND you are smart enough to navigate the internet to find this blog AND you are smart enough to have access to a computer.  So if you are doubting yourself or your worth, know that you ARE smart.

2. You live in a country that has freedom.

The fact that you are able to access this blog means that you live in a country that allows its citizens to share controversial ideas and to learn and grow from different opinions.  That is a beautiful thing that is worthy of celebration.  You are lucky to be afforded such freedom.

3. You are interested in learning.

The act of wanting to expand your horizons, to learn new things and to explore differing points of view is a gift.  You are engaged in life and that is a great thing.  There are people who have given up, who are jaded or uninterested and feel like their best days are behind them.  You are not that person.  By virtue of the fact that you are interested in internet musings means that you are an active participant in this life and good for you.  That zeal makes you a lucky person.
