5. I'm Grateful for Clean Water

I kind of stink at drinking water.  Sometimes I'm great at it, outdrinking even Samantha.  Other days, I barely manage to down 24 ounces. 

This morning I had a breakthrough, in the form of a lecture with myself.  I said, "Self! Drink more water, it's good for you!"  Then I said, "Blah, water is stupid.  Drink more Coke Zero, it's the nectar of the Gods!"  Back and forth, until I said, "Look.  You are so lucky to have fresh, clean water at your fingertips.  Drink it!"

I was right, of course.  Here are a few facts about water in the world.  After reading this, I not only felt very grateful for what we have, but ashamed at the water I waste each day. 

Drink more water.  It's good for you!
