Blog Post # 200 – You Are Alive

You are alive.

Your number has not been called yet.

Blood is coursing through your veins.

The heart at the center of your chest continues to pump.

Your lungs take in air and breathe it out without you even having to think about it.

You are alive.

We get so caught up in the events of the day that we forget to be grateful for simply continuing to exist.

For the moments we get to share with those we love.

For the challenges that we face each day.

For the emotions that come at us in various forms.

You are alive.

So you have to fight.

You have to strive to improve.

That is the trade-off for getting to stay on this planet.

Seems like a fair deal to me.

You alive? You strive.

Grateful for all of the blessings and abundance in our lives.

No matter how big or small those gifts may be right now.

Today gives us the chance to reach for our goals.

And to contribute back to this world that has given us everything.

Enjoy the fact that you are alive … today.
