It’s so easy to live for the weekend, for a vacation, for a birthday dinner.
The challenge we all face is not letting life pass us by whilst waiting for an event.
Take a minute to breathe. Feel the air pass through your nose, into your lungs. Feel your chest and abdomen expand. As you exhale, feel your chest and abdomen contract. Feel the warm air flow out of your mouth.
Have you ever marveled at the fact that you’ve been doing that since you were born?
Put your hand on the left side of your chest. Can you feel your heartbeat? Appreciate it.
Something I’m learning…and struggling with on a daily basis…is to appreciate the things that occur daily; the people with whom I interact; little tasks that are as annoying as fuck…but necessary like washing dishes and cleaning he bathroom.
I truly believe that once you really appreciate where you are, right now, that God is able to unfold for you the things He planned before the dawn of time.
Why would He entrust you with great things when you don’t marvel at the fact that you breathe? That your heart beats? That the sun rises and sets?
