Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
Today is a gift. We have all the reasons to be excited about today, but too often we forget about it. We may end up complaining and feel bad about today. Don’t let it happen. Let’s count your blessings and see why you should love your life today:
1. Today you are healthy
We are so used to being healthy that we forget how good being healthy is. Sometimes we need to be sick to appreciate the blessing of being healthy.
2. Today you have someone who loves you
Being lonely is terrible. Today, if you have someone who loves you, you have something more valuable than wealth.
3. Today you have opportunity to love
Not only do you have someone who loves you, today you also have the opportunity to love them – and other people – back.
4. Today you have good meals to eat
If you can eat a good meal today, just remember that many people can’t. Many people struggle to eat even once a day.
5. Today you have a job
Many people are jobless. If you aren’t, you have a reason to be excited about your work.
6. Today you live in peace
I just can’t imagine living in the midst of war. Fear and terror will always haunt me. I could lose the people I love anytime. I could even lose my life.
7. Today you have clean air to breathe
You don’t have to wear a mask, do you? Many people in the world must. In some parts of the world the air quality is so bad people can no longer breathe freely.
8. Today you are safe
You can go to the places you want without worrying that something bad will happen to you. That’s something to be grateful for.
9. Today you have opportunity to give
Giving is among the best ways to increase your happiness and today you have the opportunity to give.
10. Today is a new day
Forget the past. Forget yesterday. Today you have the opportunity to begin anew.
