Oftentimes, we go through life complaining about small things and not taking the time to appreciate what we do have right in front of us, we also take for granted that what we do have now is due to technology, people did not always have! For example, we often take cars for granted, however if you have a car, and it gets you from point A to point B safely, that really is something to be grateful for.
Many people lived without cars before us, and even now several people cannot afford them.
When I changed my mindset to think about what I really have in front of me, it started opening my eyes more. Something that several people do not stop to think about is the fact that cars have heating and cooling. Could you imagine driving in a car in the cold winter time without heat? Could you picture driving on the most hot and humid day without relief from a/c? You really do not even want to think about this, but we certainly are lucky that cars have this technology. Some cars even have heated seats to keep your bottom warm on freezing cold days! I live in an entirely hot and humid area, so my car gets very hot inside. I instantly blast the a/c as soon as I get in my car, and I think to myself that I would really pass out or be miserable without this. I used to live up north, and there is no way I would have been able to use my car without defrosting the front and back windshield with heat.
