I am one for complaining about where I live. How the same things happen every day, and it gets so tiresome.
But sometimes, you take a step back and take things in for what it is. And you realise that amongst the numbness of daily life, there is a silver lining. Appreciate the time and effort that has gone to build the town or city you live in.
Sometimes, you need to look beyond the Buckfast bottles, and appreciate life. Hard work has gone in to create every little thing around you. From the pavements you walk on, to the newspapers in the shops. Everything has been made by others. And then the grass and weeds that line the pavement, that grow over time, powered by nothing more than nature.
The world is a pretty magical and beautiful place. Just take the time to look around a little. 🙂
