To be Alive is a Miracle

It’s good to be alive. I am thankful for today. And that is true, despite how difficult the day may have been, or life for that matter.

It’s a true blessing to be alive right now. To see the sunrise in the morning, to breathe in that air till it fills your lungs, to drink that fresh water that sustains us. Those are all blessings. We are so fortunate to be on this selfless, faithful Earth. It continues to provide us with absolutely everything we could possibly need.

If you woke up this morning, you are living a miracle. No matter how hard life may be for you, no matter what you are going through, take a second to appreciate the wonder that is life. To actually be conscious and aware of this moment, is unexplainable. Never take for granted that blue blanket that covers our skies, nor the damp, rocky earth that covers the ground.

I am so fortunate, forever grateful for this opportunity. This experience of life.

Take a deep breath in, look around, and admire. It’s a miracle worth marveling over.

And I say thank you; thank you to my parents, to mother nature, to earth, to God, to the creator, to the universe, to whatever impossibility I owe it to. How fortunate I am, to be alive, to be part of this earth.
