It's a special day that only comes around once every 4 years. I want to rephrase that; today is a day that comes around once every 4 years. Every DAY is special. It is. It's a gift that we are alive, breathing, being, creating. When we see the world with curiosity and fresh eyes and we greet people with love and kindness, the world becomes more special for you and the people around you. It's the light that keeps us going when the darkness sets in; and as we walk towards the light at the end of the long tunnel hope is felt, and freedom is found. Each one of us has a tunnel, sometimes the tunnel is longer for you or shorter for others, but we all experience challenges and stressors. It's in lending a hand, throwing out a rope, and emanating the qualities you want to feel daily out into the world knowing those feelings will be sent back to you because the world is cyclical.
So today, take time to experience the gratitude you have for yourself, your life, and for the people in your life. How are those people in your life impacting you both in big and small ways. Who do you want to thank today for helping you up when you needed it most. What ways can you be of assistance to others?
