One of the stories gave me tears... An elderly went through so much physical pain and challenges in her life after a very nasty fall which landed her with 18 broken bones! As one could imagine, she had to endure the pain of surgeries let alone the recovery challenges. Doctors didn't have much hope and yet she didn't give up on herself despite her age! She told the doctors to proceed with the surgeries and that she will make it. If she doesn't, she knows that she has tried and fought hard for her own life. The doctors told her even if she survived the surgeries, there will be speech and mobility challenges. She told herself she will be well again and she did! She recovered because of her certainty, her focus and her determination! Is this inspiring or not?!
After hearing this story, I reflected on it even more, what's the deeper meaning of this story? It actually tells us that our mindset drive and support us to become who and what we want to be! We become what we focus on! And I cannot find a better story to relate.
Then I reflected even more... How often do we get to have such deep and meaningful conversation? Having the opportunity to sit there, connect and listen is such a precious GIFT!
My message in this blog is to invite all of you to cherish everyday in your life and live in the moment. The fact that we can breathe, see, smell and hear when we wake up everyday is a GIFT! Everyday when we can move around is a GIFT!
It doesn't matter what you're going through in life, you always have a choice to choose your mindset and to live this day (and everyday) with gratitude. Take deeper breathe, slow down (you will not miss out too much in your "busy" life if you take the time to enjoy a conversation, or take notice of what's around you when you're walking), listen from your heart, say words of encouragement to lift someone else's spirit. When we choose to live this day with gratefulness and live it as if it was our first day and our last day, we will live this day so well, live in every moment and appreciate every little things in life.
Today is a Gift, Life is a Book... so live this day (and everyday) to fullest and make it count, make a difference in your and others' lives. Start creating meaningful chapters in your book of LIFE now because only YOU can be the author of this book!
