NZ's resolutions: We don't know how lucky we are
The main thing that we need to do as a nation in 2013 is believe the old Fred Dagg song, 'We Don't Know How Lucky We Are'.
There is so much negativity and unnecessary destructive thinking and behaviour in New Zealand culture.
If only our people, especially our young people, could be taken out of their daily life in New Zealand and subjected to a day in the life of their peer in, say, Syria, Ethiopia, or Papua New Guinea they might just stop for a second and start to realise that they are actually very, very lucky to be where they are and living the life they do.
This may cause a change in mindset which could lead to more positive behaviours in life, which could only improve our lot as a nation.
