Outside of the window, the sun is shining. If you turn to look at the sky, you will see birds flying, your ears will detect the sounds that each bird makes. If you close your eyes, you can feel the wind flowing around you.
You have made it to another day. You can celebrate another day of living. How do you celebrate another day of living when you know that out there someone is suffering?
That people are hurting, it feels guilty to seek to find joy. Right? Wrong. Look around and pursue contentment and gratitude because it is the right thing to do.
The efforts you make today will encourage another person. Even the most mundane tasks, perhaps those that you don’t look forward to. It could be cleaning a room, changing the oil in the car, wishing someone well, spending time with another person.
I just want to celebrate another day of living. I just want to celebrate another day of life.
How do we celebrate another day of living? By noticing what is around you.
The access you have to experiences, The talents and gifts that you have been blessed with.
The clothes on your back, the food you ate yesterday, and the food you are looking forward to eating tonight.
Thankful for the options you have.
The difficult and hard times will come, and then they will go. You are strong enough to face them, even when you believe you aren’t.
What is your present moment? Even if you don’t want to. Decide that you are going to celebrate another day of living.
