You think that this is just another day in your life, when it is so much more. It is the one day that is given to you today, it is a gift, it is another opportunity to wake up and make this day worth it. It is a gift because it gives you another chance to see through your eyes, to feel with your heart and to smile. It is a gift because it is another day to live life, which so many people are granted for one
last time, today. So the only appropriate response is gratefulness.
The very fact that you have a pair of eyes through which you can experience life should trigger gratefulness. Your eyes register so much information every day and you have two of them. Our five senses define our life by what we see, feel, smell, hear and taste. Yet we take it for granted. Without these, there would be no life worth living, as all we’d have is an unresponsive body.
To feel grateful, is to open your heart and truly appreciate this day today. Only when you are grateful, do you make this day worthwhile. You have the choice to make it just a day, like any other, or, a wonderful day, today. Observe the weather, the clouds might move in this pattern only today, but are you paying attention? Observe the people around you, take in their faces and recognise that there is a story behind each of them.
We become so obsessed with our own little world, that we forget we are just one little speck on this planet, a tiny tiny particle in this entire universe. There is so much going on around us, and it is only fair to be grateful for all of it.
There is no need to worry about the upcoming day tomorrow, or to be stuck in yesterday. Remember, this day, today is unique, it is your gift. Use it, appreciate it, make something great out of it. That something great will be different to each and every person. Because each person receiving the unique gift of ‘today’ will use it differently. Though, in whichever way it is used, there is always a reason to be grateful for it.
Bless people, objects and dreams around you with your smile and positive thoughts. Since you are here on Earth, you have a special purpose, you are worthy and beautiful. You are meant to be. Use your beauty and your blessing to show others and inspire.
This is when your gift of ‘today’ is truly worth it.
Enjoy your gift,
