THE GIFT OF LIFE

     Most of our anxieties in life are not worth worrying over if we really think about them. Consider this; we as human beings often worry about what we don't have instead of what we do have. Maybe we didn't get the job we want, maybe we didn't get the house we want, or the car, or the raise. Maybe we are resentful because we are getting older or injured and can't do the things we used to do. But the fact always remains; we can watch a beautiful sunset, listen to great music, read a book, be with family or friends and have a roof over our heads. When you really think about it, it is a blessing to be alive at all; so don't waste your precious moments relenting over what you don't have or can't do... Be grateful for what you have, because when you really think about it, it is probably a lot.

  1. Centuries ago, the word silly meant blessing. These days it means foolish. Just like the meaning of words, we ourselves get lost in our own translation of being. In order for us to restore, gratitude by counting our blessings is a wonderful way to change our paradigm. Thanks for the reminder today.
