"Life is but a breath, so we better breathe it."



That is what I am today. Actually, it's what I am a lot of the time but I don't express those words nearly enough (especially not on this blog). In a world where stories of heartache, injustice and tragedy are so common, I catch myself complaining way too often – usually about small and insignificant things that I should see as blessings.

Each day is a blessing. Each moment is priceless. Each person I meet is a gift who can teach me something about my livfe and help me live a little better. It's important for me to remind myself to take time, sit back and actually acknowledge the positives that really DO exist every day.

So I encourage you to do the same thing. Take the next two minutes and consider the blessings that surround you. Let them overwhelm you with gratitude. So be thankful when you're tired, because it means you've made a difference. Be thankful for the setbacks because they can become your blessings. Be thankful for you misteakes because they can become your lessons. Be thankful that you dont have everything you want because if you did, there would be nothing left to achieve and to live for.

"Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.”-Anthony Robbins

Hope everyone has a wonderful week. Stay positive and share the love :)
