Nipissing, ON. CANADA.
At one point or another I think it's safe to say that we've all said things like "I can't wait until the weekend!" or "I'm having such a bad day I can't wait for it to be over!" While these are both "normal" and even common phrases that people use, when you stop to think about it they are in fact some of the most ungrateful and awful words you could utter.
In the grand scheme of things life is extremely short and fragile. Given that we don't know if we will survive the day, let alone make it through the week to reach our beloved weekends, taking even a single moment of a day for granted can be a tragedy. I know this all sounds incredibly morbid and I'm not by any means saying we should ponder death all the time, but if we were to view each day as a gift rather than an inevitability how drastically would our life change? I would imagine that instead of choosing to dwell on a bad day or situation we would probably choose to spend our energy on doing our very best to change our situation rather than complaining about it. This quote has challenged me to view every single day of my life as a gift and strive to enjoy it the fullest. Let's not waste our lives let's enjoy them!
