Retire in Mexico and Tune in to Gratitude

Now that I live in Mexico, gratitude is my new Attitude. I’m amazed at how Americans can complain about the most insignificant things when, in fact, they live very cushy lives. I live in a city where some people don’t have running water; where access to adequate restrooms isn’t guaranteed; where food isn’t something that everyone can take for granted. I’ve had to deal with an occasional lack of water myself and I’m grateful for the tank on my roof. I’ve had to budget to buy razors on a pesos income and I’m grateful that my roof doesn’t leak. I’ve seen other people have to work from 8 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday and 9 to 3 on Saturday. I’m so grateful for my leisure time and for my college education. I could go on with this list, but I think I’ve made my point.
