Today is your day. Yes you. Yes today. When you woke up this morning, you woke up to a day you have never seen-a day in time that has never happened and it has beauty, blessings, and incredible opportunities written all over it. The question is, will you open yourself up to see it? Will you allow yourself to be present to the beauty and blessings that exist all around you?
If you are reading this, it means that:
a) You are literate (Did you know that there are over 774 million illiterate adults world wide? Statistic provided by UNESCO)
b) You have access to internet (Did you know that 60% of the world’s population, which is approximately 4.2 billion does not have internet access? Statistic provided by the LA times)
I don’t know what you may be going through at this moment but what I do know is that there is far more that you and I CAN do than we can’t. On this day, for this day only, may you acknowledge and appreciate who you are, what you do have, and what you can do. May you put your courage before your fear and know that intimidation is just inspiration in disguise. May you take your eyes off your circumstances and shift them to God who is greater than anything you have, are, or will go through. On this day, may you “Let Love be your highest goal!”- 1 Corinthians 14:1
You are loved more than you’ll ever know. And friend, “It is love alone that gives worth to all things.”-St. Teresa of Avila
Note: “To Whom It May Inspire”-Austin Madison is a phrase I learned (and became a fan of) from Ed Catmull’s book “Creativity, INC.”
