"Life is a gift. Wake up every day and realize that."

Listen Now:

Why is it that we pay so much attention to the things that are going wrong in our life, rather than the things that are going right in our life?  There is so much to be celebrated every single day that deserves recognition.

Every single one of our lives is the result of a virtually impossible, smallest chance probability.  Life itself really is a gift and a privilege.  Beyond that, think about your personal circumstances and the blessings you live with.  If you have a house with utilities, a car, have freedom of expression, and your health, you are in the top tier of accessibility to resources and opportunity

So why don’t we wake up in the morning and think about that?  

A good habit to get into is practicing gratitude and mindfulness.  A good friend of me taught me this trick. After waking up, “when your feet hit the floor, say three things you’re grateful for”.  This trick forces me to reflect on the positivity I have in my life, and have appreciation for those things that I normally wouldn’t give credit to. So, “Life is a gift, wake up every day and realize that".
