One of my most-watched TED talks is presented by the brilliant Caroline Myss. It’s called, ‘Choices that can change your life,’ and if you haven’t watched it, I absolutely advice you to. More than once if you can. It’s packed full of wisdom!
As it is, I’m going to share today what Caroline finishes her talk with; a choice for each morning. She says,
“Choose to get up every day and bless this day. Choose to get up every single day and bless this day. And say I have no idea what’s going to be in my day but it is blessed [because] I’m alive. And don’t base your gratitude for your life on what you have or how you feel, but just because you are. Just because you are.
And then hold in your heart this prayer:
This day of my life will never come again. I will never see the people I am looking at again. I will never see this sunrise again and I will never see that sunset. I will never see the person having breakfast with me again, just this way. No – nothing in my life like this will ever come again.
That choice alone should take out of your heart every bitter taste there is. And it should shape the world around you with such grace and such beauty, that it will make you only want to see the present with great gratitude and love.”
Have a great day! xx
