It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just a tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness.
Our brains are wired to find things we’re looking for – if you’re always cynical or waiting for things to go wrong, then your life will reflect that. On the other hand, having a positive outlook on life will bring you joy and provide you with inspiration when you least expect it. (www.keepinspiring.me)
One of my favorite quotes is “We are what we believe”. Some days we all could use an extra dose of positive energy. On those occasions, I find reading and sharing inspiring quotes helps me re-focus and affirms my belief in the power of our thoughts.
So, as we trim the tree and wrap our packages, let’s remember to give thanks and treasure each precious moment as we reflect on our blessings from God.
