I have only one thing to ask of you today.
In the face of fear and doubt we begin to realize how little control we have over the events of the world, the events of our daily life. Each day, though, we make a choice to live.
Do everything today as if you are choosing to live. Breathe with intention. Take time to notice small, wonderful things around you. Grieve your loss. Celebrate your joy.
Know that each breath you take gives air to someone else your life touches. Know that each word you speak echos in the cells of other living creatures. Know that actions you take extend far beyond your own limited reach. We are all a part of each other. Your part is vital.
Today remember that as complicated as the world seems, as strained as relationships feel, as difficult as it is to be a part of the world around you, know that there is always beauty, always truth, always light…
I’m thankful for you.
