Each Day is a Gift; Not a Given
“Each day is a gift; not a given.”
This is my new favorite saying and one of the “themes” I’ve chosen for 2018 and beyond.
It was interesting how my initial response to this saying was to “do more.” I mean, if each day is a gift, then shouldn’t I be “doing more?”
I started thinking about projects I could start, goals I would put in place, events I would attend, travel plans I’d implement…..and I got exhausted just thinking about all of this “doing.”
Being exhausted sure didn’t make it feel like a gift.
I then had an “ah-ha” moment.
Who said I have to “do more” to appreciate each day?! Who decided that accomplishing goals or being at every event or “doing more” validates a better use of MY day?!
I thought to myself – Wouldn’t it feel better to just “be”? To enjoy each day with a good heart; to appreciate the sunrise, the sunset and everything in-between; to allow each day to be whatever it’s supposed to be and enjoy and appreciate it anyway; to see the good and the golden value in those around me, even when I don’t always agree with them?
I ask you to join me in appreciating the gift of TODAY…just by “being” in the here and now.
As always, I’d love to hear your feedback. (Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
