I woke up this morning, crawled out of my warm multi-blanketed bed & into the cold air that always seems to envelope our house, & reached for the on button on my space heater that warms my body every morning as i slip on my clothes. But before i could turn it on, visions of people struggling to merely move because the air is so frigid popped into my head. I was appalled by myself. I have been using up ten minutes of the worlds energy just so i can get a little heat in between slipping off my pajamas and putting on my corduroys when there are people in other parts who cannot even sleep because their bodies are so cold, & unlike us, they have no down comforters to even consider.
So, i decided quickly to forgo the heater from now on, suck it up, & realize how damn lucky i am in every beautiful area of my life.
