Today is a gift
We have so so so many reasons to be excited about today.
Far too often we forget about them and start to complain and to feel bad about today. Don’t let this happen.
Start to count your blessings and realize why you should love your life just now, just today:
- Today you are healthy
Health is one of the biggest gifts! Many of us are so used to being healthy that we forget how good it really is. Only when we are sick we start to appreciate the blessing of being healthy. Don't wait to be sick but be thankful now that you are healthy.
- Today there is someone who loves you
Just today, if there is somebody in your life who loves you, you are rich, you have something many people long for. It is terrible to be lonely and you have something so precious.
- Today do love
Don't be loved only, no, do love! You can love and give love as well and it feels wonderful.
- Today you have something to eat
And most probably you have not only something to eat but decent food you like. Remember that many people have nothing or not something they can choose but only a bit what keeps them alive. We can eat several times per day whereas others struggle to eat once a day.
- Today you live in peace
There are far too many areas with war on this planet, people who have to leave their homes behind to be safe, who have lost family members, who have an uncertain future ahead. Be grateful for the peace!
- Today you have time
Time to read, time to do what you like, time just for yourself even if it's five minutes. There are persons out there with no time left to enjoy life, some need to work 24/7 to feed their families, some need to be alerted every second to avoid dangerous situations, we are lucky to live in such a civilized way that we can enjoy our time.
- Today you have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink
You are not breathing through a mask and can drink unfiltered water just from the tap? Many people in the world cannot even imagine that this is possible. Air to breathe and water to drink are very rare in some areas on this planet.
- Today you are safe
This one is tricky as nowadays we cannot be safe anywhere but still we are safe when we compare our life to the life of many others. We visit places without worrying too much and that’s something to be thankful for.
- Today you can give
Are you giving? If not try it, it feels so good to give because you receive happiness. Give your neighbor a piece of your cake and you made two persons happy, the neighbor and yourself. Give a smile to a stranger and you receive a smile back. Giving is wonderful!
- Today you woke up and it is a new day
NOW, that is where we are. Don't worry about the past as it's gone. Now is a new day and you can start freshly into a new day.
