Having Been Poor

One positive side effect of having been poor, is that you end up pretty much grateful for all the good fortune that follows after.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the daily occurrence following that takes the form of a normal meal, or a meal at the top restaurant in the world. You are grateful for it all. You are also marginally affected by the grandeur of it all. For fortune is fortune, and hopefully in the midst of your trials and your passing through, you found that happiness, lasting happiness, springs from somewhere else.

This applies to other manifestations of poverty:

poverty in spirit


broken relationships

chronic automatic negative thoughts



The difference in perception from having known or not known the having and the have-notting is vast.
