The world is changing faster than ever.

As individuals, we struggle to keep up. In a fast-changing world, we have to be kind to ourselves. To be grateful for the things we do have, the society we live in, and the opportunities we’ve been given. Writing this, or reading this, is a privilege.

Gratitude reminds us of all that we do have, rather than all that we’re missing.Expressing gratitude helps us be more forgiving of others too.

It helps us remember that institutions are full of individuals who are also adapting to change. And that just like us, they’re unlikely to get it right all the time.

So make it a habit. Be grateful for the opportunities you have. Be forgiving of yourself in a world that is changing fast. And remember that others are adapting to change too.

You are your own responsibility. Be grateful.
