Wisdom to Live By: Part 4 – Life is a Gift

Life is a gift

I love this – that sense that a) life is a gift and recognising that it is precious and of value; that there are choices and opportunities, and b) the sense that I have a responsibility to use it wisely and to give back by giving of myself to others – whether that be giving my time, my talents, a listening ear, being hospitable, whatever.
I love that sense of balance, that we’ve been given a gift but that there are responsibilities that go with the gift. It’s a good reminder.

Thought for today: 22 August 2017

the quieter you become...

This is your invitation to stop what you are doing and take a moment to be. To be still. To quiet your thoughts. To breathe out. To listen.

If this is the only moment in your day when you are able to stop and take stock, then make the most of it. Just for a moment. Be still. Listen…

Then take a moment to be grateful for the good things in your life…

 

I wish you a peaceful day filled with gratitude 🙂
