Ingratitude | It’s a first world problem.


There’s a series of photographs of my sister and me as teenagers. We are hiking as a family in a jungle in Indonesia. It looks hot and sticky. My mom is handing us a piece of fresh mango. 
We just stand there firing death stares of pure hatred at the camera.

Looking back at it, I feel so ashamed at how spoilt I seem. I mean, what an amazing opportunity — so, why the scowl?!

Today, that would be my ideal holiday. But it seems an 8h hike in humid, tropical conditions doesn’t tempt a teen — even if that teen is me.

Well, I appreciate it now.

And I’m sure that tomorrow, I’ll appreciate today.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
