Every second we’re here, we’re part of an incredible adventure, a magic show that’s never repeated. I spent too long chasing the next big thing, blaming the world for not catching up, and fueling my own sense of not being enough. I missed out on celebrating the good, too wrapped up in feeling unworthy. Here’s what I’ve learned on this journey that might resonate with you too.
Today’s Reality: Embrace It
Today is life. Right now, this very moment, is your reality. It’s all-encompassing, happening to everyone around us. It’s full of the good, the bad, and everything in between. It took me a while, but I learned that the ‘bad’ doesn’t have to define us. It echoes back what we’re feeling inside and shows us exactly what we’re looking to find in the world. My turning point came when I realized that every experience, even those shaped by a brain tumor, contributes to who I become. Maybe those of us dealt with pain are here to show it’s possible to overcome and serve as guideposts for others.
Celebrate Every Day: Why Wait?
Why wait to celebrate? We don’t need a special occasion to appreciate a sunrise, the beauty of a raindrop, or the zest of lemon. Magic is in the everyday moments most overlook. Today, we get to live, to see beauty, to laugh, and to love. Being grateful for it all means we’re truly alive, and that’s a celebration in itself. Our hearts should be full because today is an opportunity to be our own version of amazing. And guess what? We define what that means for us. Pretty cool, huh?
Your Role in This Collective Journey
You play a pivotal role in this vast, interconnected journey we’re all on. Your actions, your resilience, and your ability to navigate through the toughest times with grace inspire more people than you might realize. You’re worthy of celebrating now, not later. Today, take a moment to see yourself through the eyes of those who admire you. Celebrate this magic because it’s you, and you are it.
I hope this helps.
