the study of Economics hinges upon scarcity. Most of the resources in the universe that humankind interacts with are scarce. This scarcity causes us to act differently than we otherwise would. I am grateful time is scarce, or I'd always procrastinate. I am grateful there is a scarcity of good furniture sales managers, or I wouldn't have a career. I'm grateful I am the only me, because my husband wouldn't feel all too excited about remaining with me if there were hundreds of others just like me around. Scarcity is a good thing. It creates value. That value is still subjective, but the scarcity or perceived scarcity of something creates value in that thing.
Considering things that are not scarce (or not very scarce) can show us the opposite is true as well. In the Sahara Desert, sand has no or very little value. It cannot be sold.
