Prompt: What’s Something You Learned This Week?

There are many things in life that we take for granted. The air we breathe; the roof over our head; the food we get to fill our stomaches with; the coffee flavor shots we get in our daily caffeine boost (I’m especially guilty of this last one). I learned to try and appreciate these things more, no matter how small. I want to be more aware of my own privilege and not take it for granted when things in my life could be much worse.

I am grateful for the family in my life; I am grateful for my academic career and that I just finished my junior year of university; I am grateful for being able to routinely go after my goals in life thanks to the backing of amazing family and friends.

It seems cheesy talking like this. It always does when this topic is brought up, but when asked this question of what I learned this week my privilege (the privilege I never saw before) came to mind right away.

What is something you learned this week? Let me know in the comments below.
