Who are you when you have nothing? We as a society have it much better than any of our ancestors before us, in that we can instantly communicate with anyone at any time of the day, all over the world. We can be laying in bed at 3 am on our phone or laptop, and be productive. With these opportunities comes great responsibility, and unfortunately, many of us take these luxuries for granted. How long can you go without your phone, without carbs or sugar? Putting myself in the position of having little to nothing has helped me tremendously with being disciplined, as well as grateful.
