How many times have you found yourself getting wound up about something that really doesn’t matter? You know the kind of thing…


"My butter is too hard to spread without messing up the toast"

"We’ve run out of dishwasher tablets"

"Candy Crush crashed without saving my progress"

"There’s no ring pull on the tin of beans"

When we experience these ‘first world problems’, it can feel like the end of the world, especially if you don’t have a can opener and you’re starving - there’s another one! How many of you have ever actually experienced real starvation?

Anyway, back to the point – unless you’ve ever experienced ‘real’ problems in your life, you’ll never be able to put things into perspective. The same can’t be said for Nick.

After hearing his story you’ll definitely think twice about complaining about the little things in life…
