This is one of my favorite excerpts that speaks to me on a daily basis. Please take the time to READ & LISTEN.
Being able to live, talk, walk and even breathe is a gift. Throughout our daily struggles on earth it is so easy to forget the simple things that we have been provided with in order to simply live. We tend to constantly overlook the very things that allow us to even exist on earth. Existing is a gift in itself. Being able to go through a disappointment or a problem is a gift in itself. Being able to overcome one is even better, but life is a process that we all must go through and there is no easy route.
Each morning that you wake up you should be happy and excited that you have another opportunity to be able to open your eyes and breathe. You should feel excited that you have another opportunity at life to chase your dreams, savor friendships & relationships, meet new people, grow personally & spiritually, and even experience uncomfortable situations in your life.
Quite frankly, you should begin to love life itself. If you do not take the time to love life, life will not take the time to love you back. Like anything in life if you don’t take the time to love and appreciate something, it will naturally not love you or appreciate you back. This understanding also applies to life itself. Appreciation is key!
If you don’t love life, life will not love you back.
In effort to hear the sounds of the mindset I am trying to portray, I have updated the Sounds tab with one of my favorite Will Smith’s inspirational interviews.
