So many times life is taken for granted. Time is taken for granted. But in general people are taken for granted. It is as if we just expect someone will always be there. Or that we will always be here.
Every time we awake we have been given another gift. More breaths. More sunshine. More love. And more memories.
So the next time anything has us down and want to give up we must remember that someone out there is fighting for that last breath. By using this perspective, we will find ourselves more grateful. We will have more strength to conquer the challenges before us. And we will be less likely to take any of our own breaths for granted.
Life is short and changes momentarily. We never know when anyone’s journey will end.
As a result, we must leave no words unspoken, or take a single breath or person for granted.
Take today to show those you love how much they mean to you. Celebrate their life.
Tomorrow is never promised, and this day is simply a gift.
