We, too often, go about our days without even a small appreciation for the little things that make our days worth while. What we should be doing is waking up everyday and being thankful for the ability, not only to open our eyes, but to see beyond the lens. We should be walking outside to take in the smell of the fresh air, to hear the chirp of neighborhood birds, to feel the wind sweeping across our faces.
The fact that we wake up to a world where a sun can beam down on your face and fill your entire body full of warmth is a blessing that people, in today’s society, are so easy to forget about.
When I read this quote, I felt as if it summed up my life. Then I thought to myself, if it made me feel this way, I’m sure someone else could read this and let it also apply to their lives.
Most spend so much time complaining about “life” that they forget about all the good within it. “Life” is a beautiful gift we must fight to have. Mother Teresa lived a great life in helping “the poorest among the poor.” She set an example that so much of us should follow in our everyday lives.
So I ask you, look into your own personal life and notice all the things you maybe take for granted. Now that you look at it, compare it to “the poorest of the poor” and see if it’s still as bad as you thought it was. I challenge you all to be kind, be humble, and just be happy with this beautiful thing called “life.”
