I stumbled upon the Experience section of The Guardian last night. It’s a series of first person narratives where people tell about their unique experiences: “I was swallowed by a hippo,” “my cat saved my life,” “I was the daughter of a mafia boss.” …just to name a few.  If you’re ever feeling down or ungrateful for what you have, read these stories.  They’ll give you perspective.
