The Hierarchy of Thanks

Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, short version
  • Water is life — Not just the water you drink, cook, and clean with, but all the water inside you. You’d be dead in a second without it.
  • Food — If you thanked all the plants and animals you eat, the insects that pollinate the plants, the bugs, worms, and germs that make the soil, the people who farm them and get them to you, those who pay you the money you use to buy them, you’d never stop. Don’t forget the sun, whose energy you’re eating.
Food is good
