THOUGHTS ON THE MANY ASPECTS OF LIFE TO BE CELEBRATED

BEAUTIFUL IMAGE VIA LEUIE
I woke up to a new day and to the celebration of another beautiful year. It has been a bit rainy; which is quite wonderful, as it makes for a great metaphor of life and growth.
I wanted to remain within warm and cozy covers, and as I laid reading kind birthday wishes from family and friends, I had an interior voice that invited me to spring out of bed and begin living the day.
As I allowed some light to enter the different rooms, I was suddenly reminded of a little song with the following lyrics:
A vivir, a vivir, a vivir; que la vida se te va, se te va, se te va; son tus días nada más, nada más, nada más; no los dejes escapar, escapar, escapar….
(Time to live, to live, to live, for life slips away, away, away; these days are only yours, only yours, only yours; do not let them escape, escape, escape…)
I was left with a feeling of great joy; for this is a little tune that I once heard my mother sing, when I was a young child. I quickly understood that she had subtly delivered her birthday wishes, and my heart kept the message within a place to be remembered.
We are what we celebrate, and I would like to celebrate the great gift of life and the opportunity to follow my individual purpose and mission.
After breakfast, I came across a little video of a generous lady who helped people in dire need. At first; compassion filled my mind and I had a couple of reflections, but I then allowed compassion to get into my heart and I was left with the clear reminder that there is much work to do. There is much beauty to be restored within this world and I must be more diligent in my mission.
I would like to invite you to join me, to be a little instrument for good; a light for others.
We are what we celebrate…… cheers to life!
