Yesterday, I received some fantastic news! You know, the kind of news where you immediately burst into tears of joy – that kind of fantastic news.
One of my closest friends, got the results from a scan and found out that he is going to be fine. This came after 3 weeks of tests for what initially looked like an extremely serious health condition. We put an impromptu party together, got a load of people around and had a great time.
This made me think…
My friend’s actual situation was no different yesterday, than it had been a week, month, year or decade earlier – yet there we all were, overjoyed that he was going to be his normal self.
It seems that we only REALLY value things, like; our health, our relationships, our friends etc, when we think we might lose them.
Here’s a thought
Wouldn’t it be fantastic, if we could all tap into that same level of sheer joy right now, today and every day, for all the things we have, but maybe take for granted?
I know that some countries and cultures have a few days each year, where we give thanks or show particular appreciation for our mothers or fathers. But there are 365 days every year, which are worth celebrating.
