“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love—then make that day count!”
Words to remember, to live by.
Often, I am asked by friends, family and acquaintances when meeting, “How are you doing?”
Sometimes I answer with, “Awesome! I am awesome!”
Sometimes I answer with, “Good, I can’t complain.”
Sometimes I answer with, “Hey, I’m upright and breathing. Life is good.”
Sometimes I’m faking it with those responses, but who really wants me to answer with, “Not really great and let me tell you why…”
That’s a good way to make people walk away.
No, I tend to respond in the positive because, really, breathing and being alive is a privilege that we often take for granted. Don’t take your life for granted today. Embrace it for all it’s worth. Go forth, be positive and watch the sun rise to an awesome morning.
