To those who considered life as a gift will be able to find a lot more each passing day for as long as they live. Of course, life is not always going to be an easy ride and there are days when the hurdles on the road seem like too huge for us to overcome. The terrain may as well be, as unfamiliar as it is, like heading towards a hill.
The gift of the everyday could be found in the way we look at things and to change their effects on us for the better. It is to savor every single moment with the joy, wisdom, and beauty of what we’re truly capable of finding that will lead to our deepest spiritual fulfillment. Every single day is an opportunity to help us discover the core values we will need for our lives by becoming, in as much as it takes us to knowing who we truly are and can be, our own artist.
In reality, things can go very wrong, turns ugly and life can be, at times, rough and tough. But that’s when we have to find ways for what there may be in things we can do something about. The keyword is “attitude.” When things are just beyond our control, we can control our attitude towards them instead.
The gift of the everyday is also the giving of our own gifts in exchange. What are these gifts? The gift of sight that can go beyond superficial seeing, the gift of humility, the gift of contentment, the gift of sympathy, the gift of enthusiasm, the gift of love, hope, faith, and many more.
Turning every single day of our lives into a gift is to fully experience life itself by which we have to appreciate the every little facet of what it can offer. It is about the transformation we could get by changing our consciousness for positive reasons. It is not something we have to wait for nor to let others do it for us. We have got to create the device ourselves that will produce about such gifts.
Above all, we have to remind ourselves that, when things and circumstances are blocking our way from finding them, we had the people close to our hearts to treasure for a lifetime, the things that we do to connect us with the divine, and ourselves–these are gifts worth keeping for every single day that we will never run out of.
