Entitlement. Think about it. You and I don’t have the right to anything. The attitude of entitlement does nothing good for this world. So what do you think you’re entitled to?

To be fair, I thought I should answer the question.
Time. Personal space. Sleep. Water that’s available. Water that’s clean.
Food I like. Media that works.
Easy access to comforts or even necessities (nope, not my right).
Communication with loved ones when and where I want.
The list continues…

And you?
Machines to do our laundry? Someone else to clean our house, clean our dishes, make our food? Fast internet? Your own car? Cheap prices? A home? A warm home in the winter and a cool home in the summer?

These are all things I have thought about this year in Bolivia. I continue to feel entitled. I hate that I feel entitlement. I hate entitlement.

Reminds me of the Shack... Katie and I were just talking about entitlement last night. It's hard not to feel entitled when you grow up in a country where freedom has been fought for, rights have been declared, and pursuing happiness is constitutional. Yet the right to anything but being loved is debatable, right?!
