To Start Is a Great Place to Begin

        You may or may not believe this, but I'm actually a rather private person.  The idea of sharing things I'm facing, and revealing what I keep inside my layered shell, is rather daunting.  You'd be amazed at how many posts I begin to compose, only to go through and sweep out a whole batch at a time, feeling they just aren't right, for some reason.  Lately I've had a difficult time with this fear trap.

"First World Problems"

I have to admit, many of us in the "First World" (is there a "Second World"?  I know there is also a "Third World"...), tend to take a lot of things for granted.  Unfortunately, we tend to not really appreciate things until we pretty much lose them, which besides being rather sad, is also rather a shame, because we could do so much more with what we have!  There is even that joke, about "First World problems", and how we tend to take things for granted.
