Gratitude


Is it just completed a very fulfilling yoga session for strength and weight loss, I’ve taken a moment to slow down and rest in this feeling and also get my body hydrated. Not only am I thankful for the quiet time to practice yoga, I’m thankful that I have such easy access to clean drinking water.

I see the constant reminders in social media for each of us in the first world who have Internet access and smart phones and computers to remember to stay hydrated. I cannot help but think about how fortunate I am to be here in the United States where the water is clean enough to drink directly from the tap and I’ve never gone a day without access to clean drinking water to cook, bathe, drink, frolic in at a swimming pool.

It’s funny how we need such a reminder for something that would be considered a luxury in many parts of the world. The majority of the world’s population is far below the poverty line and here I am with access to water and I rarely even think about it. So at this very moment, I am taking some time to think of how grateful I am to have water to use as I please.

Would you like to know more about clean drinking water? Here are a few sites:

1. UNICEF
2. Water.org
3. Children’s Safe Drinking Water
