Enjoy the day, do not fritter it away. Not to appreciate what you are given is an insult to the provider. Be grateful for all the priceless gifts that have been given to us free of cost.
The ocean and the beach are far better than any man-made pool to bathe in. Be grateful for the fresh air, the blue sky, the sunshine and the sandy beach.
The world is vast with so much to see and do. No matter where you are there are wonders to behold and things to enjoy. Do not waste your time on status symbols. Spend your time wisely.
“But pleasures are like poppies spread,
You seize the flower the bloom is shed;
Or like the snow fall on the river,
One moment white then lost forever.”
Robert Burns, From Tam O’shanter.
‘Waking up this morning, I smile,
Twenty-four brand new hours are before me.
I vow to live fully in each moment and look at all beings with compassion.’
Thich Nhat Hanh. Incidentally he has another book out called “Savour“ I enjoy all his writing.
If one does not appreciate their body they will not be able to enjoy all the many blessings to the full. If man does not appreciate all natures gifts they will diminish. This is our opportunity to seize this day with loving open arms.
