Take a look at the neighbourhood around you. Think of the number of people living there, and all the similarities in lifestyle accompanying. Think of the differences in back stories, how diverse a local population can be. Think of the businesses that operate in or around your community and the number of people working there. Think of the money made by the businesses around you. Think of the money made by your neighbours.
Think of the history of local institutions, like churches and schools and businesses with several decades of history. Think of all the workers and all the time they spent constructing the buildings, and the minds that designed them. Think of the planning of the roads and lots and the reason your area was settled to begin with – the natural resources that surround and abound. Think of the reason that you live in a civilization.
Think, then appreciate.
