We get so wrapped up in the problems we face on a daily basis. Sometimes, especially for those of us in developed countries, we too easily classify something as a problem. If we were honest, many of these aren't really problems – they are just inconveniences.

I wonder how our "problems" look to someone from a developing country, or in extreme poverty or someone that is homeless.

Next time you start to say, "I hate it when….", ask yourself "Is this truly something I need to get worked up over, or am I just upset that I'm inconvenienced?".

I know I'm guilty of making an inconvenience out to be an earth shattering event.
