Life as seen through the eyes of an avid dreamer...

If you have delved into any form of social media, you have most certainly seen or heard of the term: #FirstWorldProblems. I kept seeing it on facebook statuses, Twitter feeds, Instagram, and it would even get the occasional mention on televison. I understood the gist of it, but never fully grasped the concept personally until a trip I made to Starbucks with my daughter. As I was walking out of the store with my Grande Caramel Macchiato in hand, I lost my footing and in turn, dropped my freshly prepared piece of heaven onto the pavement. As I stare in awe at the un-salvageable puddle of goodness splattered all over the slimy ashpalt, I muttered angrily and, dare I say, even threw a mini-temper tantrum. My daughter giggles and says "Hashtag First World Problems eh, Mom?" At that moment, it truly hit me how good I really have it and that feeling so angry about losing that Starbucks to the parking lot was such a waste of emotion. Now, I'm not saying to thank the universe every time you drop a cup of coffee, or spill something on your new dress, or even forget to record your favorite show; but, this is to hoping that one day, when something seemingly irritating happens to you, You will take a moment to reflect on all the good things you do have in this life.
