Own Your Privilege

We all have varying degrees of privilege, some more so than others.

One could argue the vast majority of those reading these words would fall into the upper echelon of privilege category.

I've been fortunate and blessed to have grown up incredibly privileged. I've experienced a lifestyle many others have not. I've been lucky to have been able to travel to 30 countries  and 30 states.

I've never had to worry about where my next meal was going to come from, or if I had a safety net if I struck out.

Sometimes I feel 'bad' about all the privilege I've had. And I know, many of my friends often feel the same way.

But doing so misses the point.

There's nothing wrong with being privileged, in fact, it's a gift.

Those who are lucky to have been blessed with opportunity, fortune, and economic power shouldn't feel guilty, they should be fired up to help those who could use it.

No matter who you are, or where you come from, do the best with what you have.
