Life can move very quickly and it can be difficult to keep up at times. We all have goals and ambitions we wish to achieve, whether it be academically, career wise or just things in our personal lives. Unfortunately, we don't all live in similar circumstances, goals and dreams are percieved differently by different people. For most young people it may be an ambition to graduate from University and attain a well paid job, however for someone else on the other side of the world, their dream may be to have a day where they can drink clean water and have food to eat. 

We often overlook the privilages we have in life. you don't have to live in a big mansion to consider yourself fortunate. The truth is, when we're born, none of us choose the circumstances we're brought into. The thing you're grateful for is just having air to breath. Being a Londoner, things can move at a very frantic pace and you sometimes fail to stop to think of what you have and how much you have. People may say they haven't got a great life, but there's someone out there who may be in a less fortunate position to yourself, and it's not their fault. 

The thing is, you can change your circumstances but they may not be able to..
