Sometimes we get so used to things that we start taking them for granted, until they’re gone. Yes, like nonstop electricity or water, exactly.
Sometimes it’s not something as necessary as water, not even quite necessary as clothing, or somewhat necessary like a car.
Sometimes I realise I am not grateful enough for the opportunities that the Internet offers.
I wouldn’t be writing this blog.
Not that it’s a life-saving kind of blog, but it’s a useful reminder that I always have something to be grateful for.
I wouldn’t be constantly in touch with friends and family that are thousands of miles away, most of the times.
Sure, we might do with a break, but we would be missing so much on each other’s life that we would either become estranged or talk for days on end at the first opportunity.
And those who know me know that I can, literally.
And I wouldn’t have the possibility to learn so many new things every day. No, I’m not talking about Wikipedia. Well, not only.
I have been attending Coursera courses for some time now, and I keep being amazed at how lucky I am to have a chance to study, with people from all over the world, courses taught on the other side of the ocean, for free, from my desk.
How terrific is that.
