I’m very blessed. For example, I’ve managed to survive through the Mayan’s apocalypse– just a little upset that calendars reset themselves. I could use that thrilling rush you get when you find out it’s the end of the world.
A more mundane example are my meals. Though my parents aren’t professional cooks, I believe their cooking’s the most authentic Chinese food I’ve ever had in America (excluding Din Tai Fung in CA).
Every time I sit down for a meal I try to remind myself not to take anything for granted. My parents’ efforts truly make me feel like a royal descent.
