When is the last time you took a moment to stop, reflect and really take in what you are experiencing?
I had spent decades driving forward with reckless abandon. Details be damned, I'd pushed ahead like no other. I couldn't stop and I couldn't slow down.
My journey had often been forced and under appreciated. Definitely under appreciated.
And then I stopped breathing. I could only take life one breathe at a time. I was literally and figuratively forced to focus on every moment as it came to me. Because they did come to me. And each one was a gift.
Life is to be lived in moments. Moments that include all the good, bad and in between. Most of all, we should aspire to live as fully as we can in the moments of awe.
Take a moment for yourself today to appreciate what you are surrounded by. The good AND the bad.
Be overwhelmed with gratitude that you are here, right now, in this moment. Be in awe.
Today is a good day.
