On Privilege

Definition of privilege — a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.

I used to think that living the life of privilege has to be super fancy and luxurious. The facts that i could afford to live in a nice flat, eat good foods, have good friends, and travel here & there, these are also privileges. And i often take it for granted.

Lately i’ve been wondering that there’s got to be a reason why i am given all of these comforts. It can’t be just for me.

I do not have to worry about not having food on the table, so i can actually use the energy to do the work. The work that matters, hopefully — as the more privileges i enjoy, the more i have to give back to the world. So yes, I got a lot of work to do.

I guess Uncle Ben is right all along…
