Silly, Fluffy Pop Songs…Gotta Love ’em

It's amazing how a silly, fluffy pop song can remind me that life really is incredibly wonderful.  Am listening to Hellogoodbye's "Here (In Your Arms)" and it has pulled a 180 on my mood.

I've got lots of turmoil going on in my mind, lots of decisions to make, some that will not be fun no matter what I choose, but life isn't bad.  I live in a gorgeous home in a gorgeous city in a wonderful state in an amazing country.  I have more than enough(too much) food to eat on a daily basis, and I never really worry if I'll have food to eat.  I have clean water to drink, and a steady job that ranks me in the TOP 4.04% richest people in the world(Don't be shocked, you're probably higher.  Check it out at http://www.globalrichlist.com/)

To see that as someone who works a regular everyday job, and I'm in the top 4.04% of people in the world in relation to income, wow, that's sad.  I strongly encourage you to check out that Web site and see where you rank.  A few tidbits from the Web site:

$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.

Wow, I'm fortunate, that's all I can say.  And if you are able to be on a computer reading this, so are you.
