Here we are at the precipice of another twenty-four hours to use as we see fit. Did you take this daily miracle for granted?
We just assume that when we lay our heads down at the end of the day that there will automatically be another one coming back around in a few hours.
It's like having our refrigerator filled and we never have to make a list. Or having our bank account fill back up without having to make any effort!
So we take this daily miracle for granted. We don't appreciate it every day for exactly what it is.
Oh sure, there are a few special days that we take notice. Our birthdays, anniversaries, moments in history... The mere fact that you woke up this day, in this place is the result of milieu of events that had to happen to get you where you are today. If there had been even the slightest detour, you wouldn't be here.
The sequence stretches back through our timeline as far back as even to the beginning... parents, grandparents, great-great-great-grands...
The slightest variation would have landed you someplace entirely...
Yes, this is what kept me awake last night. So, please, justify my sleepless nights by being grateful for having another twenty-four hours at your fingertips. Don't wish it away. Don't spend it in anger. Make the most of it, because we don't know if we will be given the same gift again.
Thank you for spending your morning with me! Go seize the day and be thankful!
