No. The point isn't to feel guilty about what you have, or what's easy to come by.
I chopped up this grapefruit, and it was Oh So Good. All full of grapefruity yumminess. The essence of grapefruit, for the taking. My taking. Mine to slice, mine to greedily consume, messy and juicy and mine.
To take something for granted is to take it for nothing. To take it for itself, whatever it is, now in this moment -- that's not nothing. That's something. That's the fullness of grapefruit, and it has something to do with living.
