Though Only 3% Of Water Is Fresh Water, We Can Still Make A Go Of It
This afternoon I came across the fact that only 3% of the water on Earth is fresh water.
I’ve seen that number before, but forgotten about it.
It’s amazing that so many people and so much life is sustained by 3% of all water.
Sometimes, I feel that only a small percentage of my time is really useful to me and to others.
I know it is important that we sleep, go to work and go grocery shopping, but those things are not really what I want to be doing with so much of my time.
This is so even though sleeping, working and grocery shopping are not always that bad. And I am sometimes of use to others at work. ( At least I hope I am.)
And no matter what else, I know how lucky I am to have time with my wife, time with friends and family, and time to read, think, and work on my blog.
Still, I get frustrated once in a while that life is not fully what I wish it was.
Yet if six billion people can live off of just 3% of the world’s water, I suppose I can make a good go of things with the limited resources of time I have in my control.
Here is the link to the UNESCO fresh water resource page. Water, like time, has great value.
