Countering the culture of affluence

Here's an interesting observation and suggestion I found on the Spirituality and Practice website:
The economics of affluence demands that things that were special for us last year must now be taken for granted.

David Steindl-Rast in The Music of Silence

To Practice This Thought: Act counter to the culture of affluence. Be grateful for something you've had a long, long time.
