Last night before going to bed I stumbled upon this site.

10 reasons you are rich

Added to the fact that it’s Thanksgiving month and many of my face book friends are filling their status with things they are thankful for I couldn’t really get to sleep. My mind was full with all the things I am thankful for, or at least thought I was thankful for. Then I began to question myself on how many selfish things I was thinking about. I had to think deeper and find real meaning.
