Reflection

Each day is a pathway into what has never been before. If its yesterday has been joyful, it brings a sense of fulfillment. If its yesterday has been painful, it brings the hope of healing. It renews the pulse of life after the stillness of sleep. As each hour unfolds it offers a mixture of challenge and opportunity. Walk this pathway with confidence and appreciation. Cherish it. It is a once in a lifetime gift.

Prayer

May I live each day fully.

Action

Try not to allow yourself to make life merely routine. Savor each moment. Be grateful for every day.

Suggested Reading

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth;
The glory of action;
The splendor of achievement;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is only a vision;
But today, well lived, makes every yesterday
a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Kalidasa

Life finds its balance. Children grow up. Second chances come along. In the meantime, I could choose to savor this moment. What good would it do to allow annoyance to interfere with gratitude?”

What I really learned was that life is a gift and our only purpose is to be who we are. We all make it so complicated, and try to find our purpose, I learned that all I have to do is be as me as I can be.
Anita Moorjani
